This question requires students to read the given information carefully, work out what they can deduce initially, and then make further deductions, until they have solved the problem.

Some questions to help students might include:

- Can you work out where Arouet came in each of the five stages?
- What is the total number of points earned by the five riders at the end of each stage?
- What is the total number of points earned by all five riders over the five stages?
- Can Eluard have gained less than 11 points? Can he have gained more than 11 points?

It might be helpful to encourage students to draw a table (like the one in Getting Started) to help them organise their deductions.
