This week's Sherlock Holmes Mystery is about Mrs. Hudson's Record.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were away from Baker Street 221 B for almost a month. They were involved into trapping some big criminals.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Hudson went to her first MCR tournament. One hand she won had tremendous success - not in terms points though in structure.
Dr. Watson bought the newspaper “Mahjong News” and began to read:
“Mrs. Hudson, MCR tournament debutant, has managed to collect a 16-point hand consisting only of 1-point fans! … Sherlock!” – he asked Mr. Holmes – “Is it really possible?”
“Watson, It’s rather elementary!” – answered Holmes and began to draw the hand.
Question: Please, re-construct Mrs. Hudson’s hand.
Comment: The problem is rather tough to solve. There are two conceptual solutions.
