I'm thinking B

more than 1 product is : 50 + 30 + 20 - 85 =15
but this 15% counts the a(intersection)b(intersection)c twice so the ans is
15 -5 = 10 ans

I'll go with B too.

85 = 50 + 30 + 20 - x - 2(5) + 0

x = 5

Then Liked more than 1 includes those who liked exactly 2 and those who liked exactly 3.

Liked exactly 2 ---> From x = 5
Liked exactly 3----> Given 5

Total 5+5 =10

In a consumer survey, 85% of those surveyed liked at least one of three products: 1, 2, and 3. 50% of those asked liked product 1, 30% liked product 2, and 20% liked product 3. If 5% of the people in the survey liked all three of the products, what percentage of the survey participants liked more than one of the three products?

A) 5
B) 10
C) 15
D) 20
E) 25

As 85% of those surveyed liked at least one of three products then 15% liked none of three products.

Total = {liked product 1} + {liked product 2} + {liked product 3} - {liked exactly two products} - 2*{liked exactly three product} + {liked none of three products}

$$100=50+30+20-x-2*5+15$$ --> $$x=5$$, so 5 people liked exactly two products. More than one product liked those who liked exactly two products, (5%) plus those who liked exactly three products (5%), so 5+5=10% liked more than one product.

Answer: B.
