It took me 7 minutes to understand that too after matching the answers that what exactly the question is ??
Every student of a certain school must take one and only one elective course. In last year, 1/2 of the students took biology as an elective, 1/3 of the students took chemistry as an elective, and all of the other students took physics. In this year, 1/3 of the students who took biology and 1/4 of the students who took chemistry left school, other students did not leave, and no fresh student come in. What fraction of all students took biology and took chemistry?
