दौड़ का स्कोर हुआ गायब... (The race scores go missing...)

कुछ साथियों और मित्रों की फरमाइश पर कुछ बेहद आसान प्रश्न भी डाल रहा हूं...

As requested by a few of my friends and colleagues, am putting a few of very easy ones...


विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा...

गर्मी की छुट्टियों में, जब मेरे और मेरे छोटे भाई के बच्चों (सार्थक, निष्ठा, जिज्ञासा और अम्बर) के साथ खेलने के लिए मेरे ममेरे भाई का बेटा उत्कर्ष हमारे घर आया हुआ था, उन्होंने हमेशा की तरह दौड़ लगाने का फैसला किया...

प्रत्येक बच्चा प्रत्येक अन्य बच्चे के साथ सिर्फ एक बार दौड़ा, और तय किया गया कि प्रत्येक दौड़ में जीतने वाले को चार अंक मिलेंगे, जबकि हारने वाले को कोई अंक नहीं मिलेगा...

यदि दौड़ में दोनों बच्चे बराबरी पर रहते हैं तो वे दो-दो अंक बांट लेंगे...

मैंने पूरी दौड़ प्रतियोगिता के दौरान उनके अंकों को एक कागज़ पर लिखा, जो कुछ इस प्रकार था...
सार्थक - 12, जिज्ञासा - 10, उत्कर्ष - 8, निष्ठा - 4, अम्बर - ?

अब क्या आप लोग मुझे बता सकेंगे, अम्बर को कुल कितने अंक मिले थे...?

Now, the same riddle in English...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

During the summer vacations, when my cousin's son Utkarsh visited my place to have fun with his cousins (my and my brother's kids - Saarthak, Nishtha, Jigyaasa and Ambar), they decided to race with each other, like they always do...

Each of the kids raced with each other only once, and they decided that the winner of the each race will get four points, the loser will get none...

But in case, if there's a tie between the two runners, they will divide the points equally...

I noted their points down on a piece of paper, and it looked like following...
Saarthak - 12, Jigyaasa - 10, Utkarsh - 8, Nishtha - 4, Ambar - ?

Now, can you guys tell me, how many points did Ambar score...?

    3. प्रकाश भाई, कोई भी 'मीठा-सा' नाम चलेगा, और 'हलुआ' तो दौड़ेगा, लेकिन 'वीक' और 'कमज़ोर' जैसे विशेषण चुभते हैं... मेहनत तो उन 'हलुआ' पहेलियों पर भी करनी ही पड़ती है न...?
