Draw a venn diagram with the following:

(# All 3) = x
(# Drink + Home) = w
(# Drink + Fruit) = y
(# Home + Fruit) = z
(# Drink only) = 23-w-x-y
(# Home only) = 34-w-x-z
(# Fruit only) = 32-x-y-z

So:

34-x-w-z + 32-x-y-z + 23-w-x-y + x + y + z + w = 68

89 - w - y - z - 2x = 68

w+y+z = 21-2x ----(1)

We also know:
w+y+z+x = 18
w+y+z = 18-x ---(2)

Equate (1) and (2) to get:

21-2x = 18-x
3 = x

Substitute this to (2)

w+y+z = 15.

So Ans = E
