Tc : Tea caffeine
Td : Tea No caffeine
Cc : Coffee Caffeine
Cd : Coffee No Caffeine

As per question, Tc + Td + Cc + Cd = 460 -- (1)

Also, Tc + Cc = 270 -- (2)

Td = 2 * Tc -- (3)

Cc + Cd = 250 -- (4)

Now, substituting (4) in (1), we will have Tc + Td + 250 = 460

or Tc + Td = 210. -- (5)

Substitute (3) in (5), we will get Tc = 70. Substitute Tc in (2), we will get Cc = 200

Now substitute Cc in (4), we will get Cd = 50. hence, A
