There were no ties, disqualifications, or withdrawals. If no team earned more than 6 points, what is the least possible score a team could have earned?

People will earn following points as per rank
1st-5 points
2nd-4 points
3rd-3
4th-2
5th-1
6th (and below)-0 points

If no team earns more than 6 points,then maximum points a team can earn is 6
so now try to see how many maximum (6) points 2 teams can get, and then you will get the minimum score of 3rd team
let us say team 1=1+5 (=6 points)
team 2=2+4 (=6 points)
team 3 will get 3 points minimum
