# Thread: Determine Positions of each in each event

1. ## Determine Positions of each in each event

4 girls participated in 3events, the Beam, the Floor and the vault. B came 3rd on the Beam .The girl who came 2nd in the beam,won the Floor event. The girl who came 2nd on the floor,won the Vault. A beat C in every event. The girl who won the Beam came 2nd on the Vault. D came last in the Beam. Determine Positions of each in each event.

......Beam..Floor..Vault
A _________________
B _________________
C _________________
D _________________

Soution:

B 3 rd on Beam event.

A beat C in every event.

D was last in Beam.

First Beam solution.

Beam
A 1
B 3
C 2 (since A beat C in every event)
D 4 (since D came last in Beam event, hence A-1 and C-2nd)

Now, i think the constraints are unable to comply with the requirements given. hence probably question is wrong??

Wot do u think??

2. thankx for shifting it here !!
