Answer questions based on the following information:

Data on an ongoing football league of a country is given below. 20 teams are playing in the league. The rules of the league are as follows:

1. Each team plays all the other teams twice, once in its home ground, and once in the opponent's home ground. These matches are known as the "Home" match and the "Away" match respectively.
2. A win results in 3 points, a draw in 1 point, and a loss in 0 point for the team.
3. The number of goals a team scores is termed as "Goals For" and the number of goals it concedes is termed as "Goals Against". We get the "Goal Difference" by subtracting "Goals Against" from "Goals For".

Question 90

# Let us define a term pos as the difference between "home rank" and "away rank". Which of the following has the maximum value of pos?

Solution

Using the data from both the tables available, we can create the table for away matches as given below:

We have to find the team with the highest difference between home and away rank.

AS: pos = |12 - 1| = 11

WB: pos = |1 - 7| = 6

WH: pos = |2 - 10| = 8

MC: pos = |4 - 7| = 3

SW: pos = |5 - 2| = 3

Thus, the team with the highest value of pos is AS

Thus, option A is the correct answer.
