i solved as:

40 = G + E + N - B
40 = 22 + E + 0 - 12
E = 30

Hi Bunuel. Why would you subtract 12 from 30 if 30 already represents the students in one particular group?

"How many students enrolled for only English and not German" so you should subtract from 30 students who enrolled for English students who enrolled also for German (who enrolled both for English and German): 30-12=18.

Hope it's clear.

At least one subject implies Neither = 0

Eng + German + Both = 40
Both = 12
German + Both = 22
German only = 10
English only = 18

A. 30
B. 10
C. 18
D. 28
E. 32


We can use the equation:

Total = Only German + Only English + Both + Neither

Since 22 enrolled in German and 12 enrolled in both, “Only German” is 22 - 12 = 10. Since all the students are enrolled for at least one of the two subjects, “Neither” is 0. So we have:

40 = 10 + E + 12 + 0

18 = E

Answer: C
