Which of the following matches are yet to be played?

- (a)
Team A – Team B and Team C – Team D

- (b)
Team C – Team D and Team E – Team F

- (c)
Team E – Team F and Team B – Team D

- (d)
Team C – Team D and Team A – Team E

- (e)
Team A – Team B and Team E – Team F

Answer: Option E

**Text Explanation** :

Team A wins both its matches and the only teams to lose a match are E and F.

∴ A played and won against E and F.

D drew both its matches. D would draw its matches against B (1 - 1) and C (0 - 0).

Since team B drew 1-1 with team D, team B must have won the other game 4-0.

If B won (4 - 0) against E, then E would’ve won its other match (1 – 0). But E has to lose both its matches.

∴ B won (4 - 0) against F and F lost its match against A (0 - 3).

Now, since A won against F (3 - 0) hence it won its match against E by (2 - 1)

Now since E lost its match against A by (1 - 2), E would’ve lost its other match by (0 - 2) against C.

[TBP = To be played]

Hence, option (e).

3

- (d)
4

Answer: Option D

∴ Minimum absolute difference = 17 – 13 = 4

Hence, option (d).
