We are given the information that no two sisters score the same number of
goals. Since we have been asked to find the minimum number of goals that
have to be scored, we assume that the first sister doesn't score a goal. The
other 4 sisters score 1,2,3, and 4 goals respectively.

Therefore, the 5 sisters score 0+1+2+3+4 = 10 goals(Option A) combined.

P.S We have not been told that each sister scores in the soccer game.

Hi pushpitkc
In the question it asks "could have scored" I might be thinking too much but does it not imply each of them would have scored something thus 1+2+3+4+5 ??

The sisters could have scored 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10 goals.
