total = A+B+C-(sum of exactly2 )-2* all three+ neither
120=50+45+42-(8+12+10)-2*3+N
120=137-(30)-6+n
120-101 = N
N=19
IMO C

IMO - E

Total = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) -n(A U B) - n(B U C) - n (C U A) + n(AUBUC) + Neither
120 = 50 + 45 + 42 - 8 - 12 - 10 + 3 + Neither
120 = 137 - 30 + 3 + Neither
120 = 110 + Neither
Neither = 120 - 110 = 10 =Option E :) ... Hit Kudos If solution helped..
