Total No. of students enrolled = D
No. of students registered for both painting and ceramics = C
No. of students registered for ONLY painting = A-C
No. of students registered for ONLY ceramics = B-C
No. of students who signed up for NEITHER painting nor ceramics = D - (C+A-C+B-C) = D-A-B+C

formula: Set A+ Set B + Neigther - both = total
As per question :
A+B + neigther- C = D
therefore : Neither = D- A-B+C

A. A + C - B - D

B. D + A + B - C

C. D + C - A + B

D. D + C + A + 8

E. D - A - B + C

Solution:

We can use the formula

Total = Set A + Set B - Both + Neither

Using the information in the problem, we can create the equation:

D = A + B - C + Neither

D - A - B + C = Neither
