EXPLANATION
In this section we will explain the rationale for choosing the answer pertaining to every question. After practicing these MCQ(s), you would be able to understand the concepts of Venn Diagrams.
Explanation (1-5):
Given,
Total employees= 500
Number of employees playing hockey (a) = 250
Number of employees playing chess (b) = 225
Number of employees playing badminton (c) = 200
Number of employees playing hockey and chess (d) = 120
Number of employees playing hockey and badminton (e) = 110
Number of employees playing chess and badminton (f) = 70
Number of employees playing all the three (g) = 50
So we can deduce,
Number of employees playing hockey and chess alone (h) = Number of employees playing hockey and chess (d) - Number of employees playing all the three (g) = 120-50= 70
Similarly,
Number of employees playing hockey and badminton alone (i)= e-g= 110-50=60
Number of employees playing chess and badminton alone (j)= f-g= 70-50=20
Number of employees playing hockey alone= Number of employees playing hockey (a)-(Number of employees playing hockey and chess alone (h) + Number of employees playing hockey and badminton alone (i) + Number of employees playing all the three (g))
Number of employees playing hockey alone (k) = 250-(70+60+50) = 70
Similarly,
Number of employees playing chess alone (l) = 225-(70+20+50) = 85
Number of employees playing badminton alone (m) = 200-(20+60+50) = 70
This can be represented in Venn diagram as below:
1. Players playing none of the games= Total employees- Employees playing games
That is 500-(70+85+70+20+50+70+60) =75
2. Directly from Venn diagram, the answer is 70
3. Directly from Venn diagram, the answer is 85
4. Directly answer can be deduced from the Venn Diagram
5. Player playing all the games alone= k+l+m=70+85+70=225.
Explanation (6):
Clearly from the diagram there are 7 persons.
Explanation (7):
Common of politicians and Journalist = 2 + 3 + 5 = 10.
Detailed explanation (8 – 10):
Since, x = 12, the figure becomes:
Explanation (10)
(42 + 42 + 42 + 12 + 8 + 6 + 4)/42 = 78/21
