One third of them failed the math test = 1/3 of 108 = 36. Passed in math test = 82.
And 1/6 failed that literature test = 18.

It is a possible scenario that these 18 (failed in literature) were the ones who passed the math test. So in this case, no one failed in both.

Hence A.

the least failed in both can be 0
while max can be 18
