At the beginning 450 + 300 + 150 = 900

people who have chosen 100 in all three courses. Explain that 100 people have been counted three times.

900-200 = 700

700-500 = 200. For the number of double-choices,

we get the upper limit of 200 people. Now look for the lower limit

C and remove it. Three choices of people, 150-100 = 50 BC + AC up to 50 people, then the remaining 200 -50 must be filled by AB, that is, at least 150

, the range of possibilities is 150 to 200

Answer: C & D

Hi There!

Let me try helping you!

Students who study course A (This includes only A, A& B, A& C & A,B & C)=450

Students who study course B= 300

Students who study course=150

Now, as we know the 100 students who study all the 3 subjects will be included in the above students and they will be counted thrice i.e. once in A, B & C. Therefore we can subtract this from all the three

A(This includes only A, A& B, A& C )450-100=350

B=300-100=200

C=150-100=50

Now the above values are those values which includes individual and two courses together.

Total students=500

350+200+50+100=700

700-500=200

Thus, there has to be 200 students combined (A& B, B& C, A& C)

As we know that C has only 50 students left the maximum it can share with A & B is 50

So, If A& C or B& C= 50. The left 150 has to be filled by A & B to give us a total of 500.

And if those 50 take up only C course. Then 200 students take A& B together.

IMO C & D

Hope this helps!

AUBUC + Leftovers= A + B + C - (d + e + f) - 2(A∩B∩C)

500 + 0 = 450 + 300 + 150 - (d + e + f) - 2(100)

(d + e + f) = 200

For Maximization;

e = f = 0

i.e. d = 200

For Minimization;

As, C = f + e + 100

150 = e + f + 100

e + f = 50

Therefore, d + 50 = 200

i.e. d = 150

Hence, option C and D
