This is not a proper way to solve question but I think it works ....

Total number of subscriptions = 1(A) + 2(B) + 3(C) + 5(D) = 11

3 people subscribe to 2 magazines each (6 subscriptions)
1 person subscribes to all 4 (4 subscriptions)

Total subscriptions is 10

The difference is the answer. 1 magazine.

This is how I solved this -

M T-----x y z w
----------------------
A 1-----1 0 0 0
----------------------
B 2-----1 1 0 0
----------------------
C 3-----1 0 1 1
----------------------
D 5-----1 1 1 1
-----------------------

T is total number of magazines.

x subscribed to all the magazines.

y,z, and w subscribed to two magazines each.

That leaves only one magazine left. Magazine D. For the fifth person.
