In a sports event, six teams(A, B, C, D, E and F) are competing against each other. Matches are scheduled in two
stages. Each team plays three matches in Stage-I and two matches in Stage-II. No team plays against the same
team more than once in the event. No ties are permitted in any of the matches. The Obsercations after the

Two teams lost all the matches
D lost to A but won against C and F
E lost to B but won against C and F
B lost at least one match
F did not play against the top team of Stage-I
Stage-II
%{font-family:verdana}The leader of Stage-I lost the next two matches%
%{font-family:verdana}Of the two teams at the bottom after Stage-I, one team won both matches, while the other lost both matches.%

A(Lost) x E(Won)
A(Lost) x F(Won)
B(Won) x C(Lost)
B(Won) x D(Lost)

Dear kvin2kool, with the scores mentioned by you Aditya will get admission into all the colleges other than college 3. But in the question it is given that
Aditya did not get a call even from a single college which means he did not get admission from any of the six colleges and I think you have mistaken it for
"did not get a call from one of the colleges".
