A

1

B

5

C

2

D

3

Solution

## The correct option is C 2Given that there is one zone where no company sold Frisbees. Let Z4 be such a zone. Assume that A sells Frisbees in zone Z1, so the other company that sells Frisbees in Z1 has to be E. Since G has three competitors, therefore the number of companies selling Frisbees in the zone where G sells is 4. Lets assume G sells in Z2, therefore the complete list of companies selling Frisbees in Z2 is E, G, C and H. The same holds true for B, which has three competitors. Lets assume B sells in Z3, therefore the complete list of companies selling Frisbees is E, B, C and H. Now, since the number of competitors of D and F are 4 each the complete list of companies selling Frisbees in Z5 will be E, D, F, C and H. The following table can be made now. ZONECOMPANIESZ1A,EZ2E,G,C,HZ3E,B,C,HZ40Z5E,D,F,C,H A has exactly one competitor. If you look at the table , A can have 0 competitors by being present in Z4 and 1 competitor by being present in Z1. Thus, the answer is option option (c)
