Another Approach--



Don't get upset with TWO variables x and y..
you don't require y anywhere in calculations


Total = T =96..
Light =L=65 and Orgainc = O =40..
Both=B=2x
None = N = x...

So L + O - B = T - N ....
65 + 40 -2x = 96 - x..
x= 9...
we are looking for ONLY Organic = O-B = 40 - 2x= 40-2*9 = 22

Light Beer = 65
Organic Beer = 40
Both = 2x
Neither = x
Organic Beer but not light = Organic only = y

Organic only = 40 - 2x = even. Options B, D and E can be eliminated.
Answer has to be either 56 or 22.

But, total organic beer including a mix of light beer = 40. So 56 cannot be the answer. Eliminate option A.

We do not require any sort of calculation for this question.
