AXB

AXC

AXD

BXC

BXD

CXD

B has 7 points, which means it has won 2 ( 3 points each ) games and one draw ( 1 point ). Which means B has already played all it's three games.

BXA, BXC, BXD

C has 4 points, which means it has won one game ( 3 points ) and one game was draw ( 1 point ). it has yet to play the it's third game.

CXA, CXB, CXD

AXD also has not been counted above.

Therefore the remaining games are

one remaining game for C ( CXA or CXD ) and the game (AXD)

Thus the answer should be remaining games are "2"
