Given data:
P(M) = P(Ps) = 52
P(E) = 64
P(M U Ps) = 0
P(M U E) = 12
P(E U Ps) = 22

The maximum possible value of P(M U E U Ps) = 0 because we have
0 students who take both Mathematics and Psychology

P(Only M) = P(M) - {(P(M U E) + P(M U Ps)} = 52 - 12 = 40
P(Only E) = P(E) - {(P(M U E) + P(E U Ps)} = 64 - 34 = 30
P(Only Ps) = P(Ps) - {(P(E U Ps) + P(M U Ps)} = 52 - 22 = 30

Therefore, the total number of students who are in at least one course = \(40 + 30 + 30 +12 + 22\) = 134(Option B)

I like to solve 3-overlapping sets problems with a diagram as it helps me visualize the data better.

Please find the image with solution.

We can use the following equation:

#(at least one course) = #(M) + #(P) + #(E) - #(M & P) - #(M & E) - #(P & E) + #(M & P & E)

Since there are no students enrolled in both Mathematics and Psychology, #(M & P) = 0 and #(M & P & E)
= 0 and we have:

#(at least one course) = 52 + 52 + 64 - 0 - 12 - 22 + 0

#(at least one course) = 134

Answer: B
