We will be solving interesting sets as a part of this series LRDI of the Day. I will be posting a video solution by the end of the day. You can keep a track of all the sets by clicking here: LRDI of the Day

#LRDIoftheDay #4

Six players Walter White, Rick Grimes, Mike Ross, Sherlock Holmes, Barney Stinson and Sheldon Cooper participated in a tournament which had 3 rounds: Chemistry, Physics and Law. Points received by each player in a round had to be less than the maximum points for that round (see the table). A player with the least points in a round was eliminated in that round. After round 3, the sum of all points received till then for each non-eliminated players was calculated and then the one with the maximum sum was declared as the GOAT.

Following table provides partial information about the performance of each player during the tournament.

After the completion of the tournament following things were noticed:

I. In each of the rounds Chemistry, Physics and Law one player got eliminated. Also, all points obtained were prime numbers.
II. No player got less than one-third of the maximum points in any of the rounds.
III. Points in each column as well as each row (of the table) were distinct.
IV. The player who got the maximum points in Chemistry, got eliminated in Law.
V. In Chemistry, Walter White got more points than Barney Stinson, who himself got more points than Rick Grimes.
VI. The player who got eliminated in Physics had an aggregate of 24 points in Chemistry and Physics.
