Children + adults = 240
Children = 110
adults = 130
Men = women + 20
Men + Women = 130

m + w + c = 240

we know ....
m = w + 20
m + w = c + 20

rearranging....
m+m-20+2m-40 = 240

m = 75.. OA is B

m+(m-20)+(m+m-20-20)=240

4m=300, so m=75

E) 200


Adult + Children = 240
Let, Children = y
then, Adult = y+20
i.e. y+(y+20) = 240
i.e. y = 110
i.e. Adult = 110+20 = 130

Adults include only Men and Women

i.e. Men + Women = 130

Let women, W = x
then Men, M = x+20

i.e. x+(x+20) = 2x+20 = 130
i.e. x = 55

i.e. Men, M = 55+20 = 75

Answer: Option B

A) 240
B) 75
C) 110
D) 130
E) 200


240 = Adults+ Children

240 = ( Children+20 )+ Children

220 = 2 (Children )

Children = 110
Adults = 130

Now, it is given
Quote:
There are 20 more men than women


Adults = Men + Women

130 = Men + Women

130 = (Women + 20 )+ Women

110 = 2 ( Women )

Women = 55

So, Men = Women + 20

Or, Men = 55 + 20

So, Men = 75

Answer is definitely (B)

# OF MEN W+20
# OF WOMEN W

# OF CHILDREN C
# OF ADULTS C+20

C+C+20 = 240

2C+20=240

# OF CHILDREN = 110

# OF ADULTS = 240-110 = 130

W+20+W = 130

2W+20=130

2W =110

# OF WOMAN = 55

# OF MEN = 55+20 = 75
