In a group of persons travelling in a bus, 6 persons can speak Tamil, 15 can speak Hindi and 6 can speak Gujarati. In that group, none can speak any other language. If 2 persons in the group can speak two languages and one person can speak all the three languages, then how many persons are there in the group ? 

A) 21 B) 22
C) 23 D) 24
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 23

Explanation:

Let us assume the two persons who can speak two languages speak Hindi and Tamil. The third person then speaks all the three languages.

Tamil – Number of persons who can speak is 6. Only Tamil 6 – 2 – 1 = 3

Hindi - Number of persons who can speak is 15. Only Hindi 15 – 2 – 1 12

Gujarati – Number of persons who can speak is 6. Only Gujarati 6 – 1 = 5

Thus the number of persons who can speak only one language is 3 + 12 + 5 = 20

Number of persons who can speak two languages = 2

Number of person who an speak all the languages = 1

Total number of persons = 23.

Q:

In a town of 500 people, 285 read Hindu and 212 read Indian Express and 127 read Times of India, 20 read Hindu and Times of India and 29 read Hindu and Indian Express and 35 read Times of India and Indian express . 50 read no news paper . Then how many read only one paper ?

A) 123 B) 231
C) 312 D) 321
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 321

Explanation:

No. of people who read Hindu = 285
No. of people who read TOI = 127
No. of people who read IE = 212
Now,
No. of people who read Hindu and TOI both is = 20
No. of people who read TOI and IE both is = 35
No. of people who read Hindu and IE both is = 29
Let No. of people who read Hindu , TOI and IE all is = x ;
So, only Hindu is = 285-20-29-x = 236-x ;
Only TOI is = 127-20-35-x = 72-x ;
Only IE is = 212-35-29-x = 148-x ;
Now, 236-x + 72-x + 148-x + 20 + 29 + 35 + x + 50 = 500 590 -2x = 500
So, x = 45 this is the value who read all the 3 dailies.
So, No. of people who read only one paper is = 236-45 + 72-45 + 148-45 = 191 + 27 + 103 = 321.
