Tackle These Three Tests (Posted on 2005-08-07) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Arthur, Bert and Charles took three exams. In all exams, the first got X points, the second Y points, and the third Z points, X, Y and Z being positive integers such that X>Y>Z.

Summing the three results, Albert got 20 points; Bert, 10; and Charles, 9. Albert was 2nd in Algebra. Who was 2nd in Geometry?

There is only one possibility

Albert = 2X and  1Y

Bert = 1X and 2Z

Charles = 2Y and 1Z

and X, Y & Z is 8, 4 & 1 respectively

if Albert came 2nd in algebra in other subjects charles came second
