Question 13

Post by TECHNOTHLON on Thu Jul 21, 2016 10:49 am

Question 13 :
As he reaches the exit of the market, Mario notices five people who are gathered for an eat-as-much-as-you-can competition. There is a clear order in their hunger (i.e. no two people are identically hungry) and the person who was more hungry initially (at the beginning of the competition) wins in a face-off. How many face-offs are required to rank everyone according to their initial hunger?
Note : Face-offs should be sufficient to guarentee rank of everyone in any case

hunger = strength we have to consider the worst/longest case purposely....ie our first match would have to be btw/ the strongest and weakest,,,the weakest would consecutively lose out to the other 4,,,,now we will exclude him and again consider someone else to be weakest(among the 4),and repeat the same,,,the new weakest guy will lose out to the other three, and so on ,,,,,,so the answer would be 10
