The max number for X is 55.
The MIn is 100=210-( households with 2 of the items)-2( Households with all 3) the lowest value for households with all 3 items is when the households with 2 items are max or 108. Then we have only 1 household with all 3 items.
The ans is 54*56=3024 or D

Max number for X is 55

Now for lowest possibility

Max no common between DVD and CP =100- (75+85)= 55

Max no common between DVD and MP3 = 100 - (75+55)=30

So common among all 3 will be 55-30= 25

so X^2 - Y^2

(55)^2 - (25)^2 =3025-625 =2400

So ANS A
