    hi again, any one help me again

    Three girls collect ticket for sweepstake. Shimthy collect more tickets than marry, but not as many as Betty. Each girl has a brother. Their brother also collects tickets. John collects twice ticket than his sister. Barry collects four times than his sister. Tom collects 5 times tickets than his sister. They altogether collect 44 tickets. Shimthy has 6 tickets and Barry’s sister don’t have the least number of ticket.

    On this three question:

    1) Which pair has a relation of sister and brother among the following option?

    2) Who has the least number of tickets?

    Here, both the mathematician and the lawyer will sue you in court. You give them too much headache.
    Even a genius will sue you in court as well.
    The silent majority will complain too, only in silence.
    The judge of the case will resign.

    Everybody will condemn you for posting a question that nobody will understand.

    So, to prevent all these, you try to change your question above and clarify many things so that a few, at least, can try to solve the problem.
    Like who is brother to whom? What are a,b,c? What options? Why 3 questions?
    I don't even know what you must clarify. Why not just make the question solvable. I am totally lost.
