I think it is "E". We don't know how many volunteered for both Activities Committee and the Homecoming Committee or Welcoming Committee and Homecoming Committee.

E !

1) insuff, because we dont know how much serve on two or three together
2) insuff, because we dont know wether the rest serve on two or three
1) + 2) insuff, because we still dont know wether how much serve on two or three at the same time. we only know that two students serve on two committees.

I is insufficient, number could be from 0-2
II is insufficient, number could be from 0-2
I plus II is insufficient, number could be from 0-1 (2 served both first and third committee. Another one served first, Another two served three. So we've got five different people. Committee 2 has two people, there's the six people must be there. However for the last position of committee two, it could be one of the two people who also serve the other two committees, or one of the other people.)

I go with E

1) the statment says each memeber of the council volunteeder to server on at leat one comitte. This tells you nothing about how may signed up for all 3. and is really useless info

2) Well this still doesn't tell you how many volunteered to serve on all 3. so two students voluntted to serven on both activites and wlecome.... doesn't give you any clue to what the other 4 voluntteered for.

In combination still no help...

So I go E
