Look at this question as a Combination question :)

If you want to show the mileage between two cities, you have to select 2 out of the 6 cities given.
the total number of selections would be 6C2 = 15

Total number of Entries = 15

Other than using combinations, you could see the chart has 6*6 = 36 entries. Diagonal is the distance from A to A, B to B etc so we can remove 6, leaving 30. Each has a duplicate so divide by 2 = 15

I did this one by counting rows in starting from each column, and decreasin succesively by 1. So A has 5 entries, B has 4 and so on..

The answer is = 15

Answer - A

Easy way to go about this problem is we have 6*6 = 36 enteries in table the least number of enteries would be (36 - 6) /2 since 6 enteries represent the distances between same points .

Alternatively this can be solved as combination problem.

Correct Answer A

The least number of table entries will be if we use only one entry for each pair of the cities. How many entries would the table then have? Or how many different pairs can be selected out of 6 cities?

\(C^2_{6}=15\)

Answer: A.
