Ans : C

11 of the 44 people who choose Mutual Funds+Bonds invest in Stocks
7 solely in stocks
22 of the remaining investors are un decided between stocks.
So, 7+11 it is

Hi,
22 are not undecided but are in equal number..

There are three cases..
1) solely stocks - 7
2) stocks and one of mutual funds or bonds - \(\frac{1}{4}*44=11\)..
3) all three including stocks - 22/2=11, as remaining 22 invest equally in all three or just two m and b..

Total = 7+11+11 = 29

Hi chetan2u can you please explain the 3rd part
remaining investors invested in equal numbers in either all three options or a combination of bonds and mutual funds
22 is not divisible by 3 so I equally divided it between bonds and mutual funds
Thanks for all your efforts

There are three cases..
1) solely stocks - 7
2) stocks and one of mutual funds or bonds - \([fraction]1/4[/fraction]*44=22\)..
3) all three including stocks - 22/2=11, as remaining 22 invest equally in all three or just two m and b..

Total = 7+11+11 = 29

Hi,

remaining investors invested in equal numbers in either all three options or a combination of bonds and mutual funds

So EQUAL numbers is in
1) all three options
2) both mutual funds and bonds..

This means 22/2 bought all three and 22/2 bought the rest two but not stocks..

That is why we are getting 7+11+11
