**Explanation** :

We can draw the following Venn diagram from the information given in the question.

From (1): a = 3g …(1)

From (2): c = (c + g) – 10

⇒ g = 10

⇒ a = 30 [From (1)]

From (3): e + f = a + b + 29

⇒ e + f = 59 + b …(2)

From (4): a + e = 140

⇒ 30 + e = 140

⇒ e = 110

From (5): a + b = g + 100

⇒ 30 + b = 10 + 100

⇒ b = 80

⇒ e + f = 59 + b = 139 …(3) [From equation (2)]

⇒ 110 + f = 139

⇒ f = 29

From (6): a + b + c + d + e = d + e + f + g + 86

⇒ a + b + c = f + g + 86

⇒ 30 + 80 + c = f + 10 + 86

⇒ c = f - 14

⇒ c = 15

Now, total number of people surveyed is 300.

∴ a + b + c + d + e + f + g = 300

⇒ 30 + 80 + 15 + d + 110 + 29 + 10 = 300

⇒ d = 26

∴ The final Venn diagram is:

∴ Number of people who subscribed for exactly one newspaper = c + g = 15 + 10 = 25.

Hence, 25.

**Answer the next 5 questions based on the information given below:**

In a colony, a survey was conducted regarding the ownership of three different types of jeans – Straight-fit, Ripped and Low-waist.

- The number of residents owning all three types of jeans is the same as those owning none.
- The number of residents owning exactly two of any type of jeans are same which is also same as the number of residents owning none of the three types of jeans.
- The number of residents owning only low-waist jeans is half the number of residents owning either only straight-fit or only low-waist
- Number of residents who own only low-waist jeans is same as the number of residents who own at least one more type of jeans.

**PE 2 - Venn Diagram | LR - Venn Diagram**

If the number of residents who own only low-waist is 120, then what is the total number of residents in the colony?

- (a)
400

- (b)
800

- (c)
600

- (d)
1000

Answer: Option B

Join our Telegram Group for CAT Preparation.

**Explanation** :

Let the number of residents who own all three types of jeans = x.

From (1): The number of residents who own none of the three types of jeans = x

From (2): The number of residents who own exactly two of any type of jeans = x

Let the number of residents who own only low-waist jeans = y

From (3): The number of residents who own only straight-fit or only ripped jeans = 2y

From (4): x + x + x = y

⇒ 3x = y

Total number of residents = 2y + 2y + y + x + x + x + x + x = 5y + 5x = 15x + 5x = 20x.

If the number of residents who own only low-waist i.e., y is 120, then x = 40.

∴ Total number of residents = 20 × 40 = 800.

Hence, option (b).

What percentage of the residents who own straight-fit jeans, also own at least one more type of jeans?

- (a)
66.67%

- (b)
13.67%

- (c)
28.56%

- (d)
33.33%

Answer: Option D

**Explanation** :

Consider the solution to first question of this set.

Number of residents who own straight-fit jeans = 2y + x + x + x = 2y + 3x = 9x

Number of residents who own straight-fit jeans and also own at least one more type of jeans = x + x + x = 3x

∴ Required % = 3x/9x × 100 = 33.33) %.

Hence, option (d).

What percentage of the colony residents own exactly one type of jeans?

Answer: 75%

Join our Telegram Group for CAT Preparation.

**Explanation** :

Consider the solution to first question of this set.

Number of residents who own exactly one type of jeans = 2y + 2y + y = 5y = 15x.

Total number of residents = 20x.

∴ Required percentage = 15x/20x × 100 = 75%

Hence, 75.

What percentage of the residents own straight fit or low-waist jeans?

Answer: 80

Join our Telegram Group for CAT Preparation.

**Explanation** :

Consider the solution to first question of this set.

Number of residents owning a low-waist or ripped jeans = 4y + 4x = 16x

∴ Required percentage = 16x/20x × 100 = 80%

Hence, 80.
