Each of the four managers – Dev Sharma, Prakhar Tekade, Rohan Guha and Rohini Raheja – worked for an integral number of years in each of the three companies – RIL, TCS and ITC. The sums of the number of years spent in the three companies together were distinct for the four managers. The sums of the number of years spent by the four managers together in the RIL, TCS and ITC were 12, 13 and 14 respectively. No manager spent an equal number of years in any two companies.
