KUDOS
a - lists that are only part of Company A ( A not B )
b - lists that are only part of Company B ( B not A )
c - lists that are part of both company A & B ( This is the overlap portion of the venn diagram)

X mailing lists = a + c
Y mailing lists = b + c

Total = X + Y - Both = a+c + b+c - c = a+b+c

As per the question

a+b+c = 3(a+c) --> b = 2(a + c) --> b = 2X

Y = 2X + c

c = Y-2X

(x-b)+b+(y-b)=3x, x+y-b=3x , therefore b=y-2x. Hence, the correct answer is B.
