Only A = 60 - 5 - AB - AC = 55 - AB - AC
Only B = 40 - 5 - AB - BC = 35 - AB - BC
Only C = 20 - 5 - AC - BC = 15 - AC - BC

(55- AB - AC) + (35-AB-BC) + (15-AC-BC) + 5 + AB + AC + BC = 90
110 - AB - AC - BC = 90
AB+ AC+BC =20

Exactly two courses : A+B+C - 2(A n B n C) - (A u B u C ) = 60 + 40 + 20 - 2 * 5 - 90 = 20 (Answer)
