Physics = 30
Chemistry = 25
Biology = 17
All three = 2
Only P and C = 7-2 = 5
Only B and C = 6-2 = 4
Only P and B = 8-2 = 6
Only Physics = 30-6-5-2 = 17
Only Chemistry = 25-5-4-2 = 14
Only Biology = 17-6-4-2 = 5
One subject = 17+14+5 = 36

B is the answer.

Man, these are tough. I tried using the two forumulas in the GMATClub book and they did not help.
