A treasure hunt competition requires a team of 4 students. There are 6 students who are willing to participate: John, Edward, Milner, Luiz, Howard and Paul. However, Edward and Milner do not want to be on a team together, while Paul only wants to be on a team if Edward is also. How many different teams can be formed?

A. 3

B. 6

C. 5

D. 7

E. 8

Ready4GMAT app

Total ways to make a team - 6C4 = 15

Unwanted 1 Scenario (where E&M are together) - 4C2 = 6

Unwanted 2 Scenario (where either of P or E are on team) - 4C3 = 4

Desired = 15-6-4 = 5

Hope this helps!
