156 Mahjongs

Question: Please, reconstruct the hands (any discarded tile from any of four hands gives three mahjongs).

7 Pairs, 14 points

Mrs. Hudson has in her hand 14 tiles and she distinctly sees 14 points.
She made a legal declaration.
Question: What declaration could Mrs. Hudson make?

Answer. Mrs. Hudson played with adapted set. She has in her hand:
and Flower “Plum” and Season “Spring”. All 14 adapted tiles has digit “1”.
So she can make two possible legal declarations – “Kong” or “Flower”.
