8.very good dancers = 3 2 5
good bike stunts = 7 3 4
dancers doing stunts = 7 9 2
The code for 'doing' is '9'

(9-10): ? > ? > ? > Bubbli  >  ?
Dodo > Annie > Chutki
Dodo > Annie > Chutki > Bubbli > Ema
↓                           ↓
17                          11
9.Chutki has 11 flowers.
So, Bubbli has 11  ̶  4 = 7 flowers.

10.Annie has the second most number of flowers.
