10%
20%
30%
50%
65%


from the question stem: 20% answered neither of the two => 80% answered both the questions.
so, we have
Q1or Q2 = Q1+Q2- Q1&Q2 => Q1&Q2 = Q1+Q2-Q1orQ2
=> Q1&Q2 = 75+55-80 = 50%

50% answered both correclt

Formula:
Total = A + B + None - Both

So,

100 = 75 + 55 + 20 - Both
Both = 50%

Thanks
