In a group of 25 factory workers, 15 have brown eyes. Six of the women do not have brown eyes. How many of the 11 men have brown eyes.

Total number of worker (M+W): 25
No. of men (M): 11 (Inferred from How many of the 11 men)
No. of women (W): 14

Total no. of workers who have brown eyes (B): 15
No. of women who do not have brown eyes: 6
Therefore, no. of women who have brown eyes: W - 6 = 14 - 6 = 8

Remaining 7 are men. (B - 8= 15 - 8= 7)

So 7 out of 11 men have brown eyes.

D

D
From the question:
Total = 25
Brown (total) = 15
Women not brown = 6
Men = 11

Hence;
Women = 25 - 11 = 14
Women with Brown eyes = T.Women - Women not brown = 14 - 6 = 8
Men with brown eyes = Total with brown eyes - women with brown eyes = 15 - 8 = 7

Total number of factory worker = 25
if 11 of them are women the rest are women i.e. 14
out of 14 women 6 don't have brown eyes so it means that 8 have brown eyes
a total of 15 persons have brown eyes
if out the 15 , 8 are women the rest are men with brown eyes = 7
Men with brown eyes = 7
correct answer - D
