At a class, the students are going to choose a leader.
The class has 3 groups of students.
Each group contains 4 students.
so total students are 12.
After discussion, they determine this rule :

each students have to vote 1 from each group.
so each students have to vote for 3 persons.
example: if the groups are [a,b,c,d] [e,f,g,h] [i,j,k,l]
each student have to choose 1 from [a,b,c,d], 1 from [e,f,g,h], and 1 from [i,j,k,l]
