This is what you know:
1. The name of this game is significant (Petals Around the Rose)
2. The answer is always even
How is the score determined?
The solution is to count the dots (petals) surrounding the center dot (the rose).
Only odd numbers have a center dot, so even numbers (2, 4 and 6) are worth zero.
1 doesn’t have any surrounding dots, so it too is worth zero.
The three has two dots surrounding the center, so it’s worth two.
A five has four petals around the rose making it worth four.
