    Needs a little bit of help.

    You can say:

    "There were many brilliant students, but I, a stupid person, came and solved a small problem that they couldn't."

    "There were many brilliant students, but I, a stupid person, came and solved a small problem that none of them could."

    No. It is not correct. I will not offer the reason it is not correct because that was not your question.

    Sentences require coherence in the use of tense. Here ,since the sentence belongs to simple past tense,the verb" solve " should be turned into " solved ".

    Yes, it is fine as written, although there are many ways to express the same thought.

    “Solve” should be changed to past tense: “solved.”  Then you’re good.
