Had they collected £16 each, the mode would have been £16 but the range would have been £0

So two of them must have been £2 apart

How about

£16, £16, £15, £17

Tutors come online at different times of the day, so you won't necessarily get immediate answers.

With 4 teens, at least two must have collected the modal amount 16 + 16.

64 - 32 = 32

With range of only 2, the remaining two must be one above and one below the mode.
