In overlappping sets

Total-N=A+B -both.

N=neither,

A=Number of people in category A and both groups

B=Number of people in category B and both gorups

Both=number of people in both groups,

25% liked neither so total-n=75%=60%+45%-both
=30%.
so option D is correct

E. 35%


Let total number of people participated be \(= 100\)

\(45\)% of total liked dogs \(= 45\)% of \(100 = \frac{45}{100}*100 = 45\)

\(60\)% of total liked cats \(= 60\)% of \(100 = \frac{60}{100}*100 = 60\)

\(25\)% of total liked neither \(= 25\)% of \(100 = \frac{25}{100}*100 = 25\)

Total \(=\) Liked Dogs \(+\) Liked Cats \(-\) Liked Both \(+\) Liked Neither

\(100 = 45 + 60\) \(-\) Liked Both \(+ 25\)

\(100 = 130\) \(-\) Liked Both

Liked Both \(= 130 - 100 = 30\)

Therefore Percentage of people participated liked both cats and dogs \(= 30\)%
