Finding difficulty to find one proper approach/method to solve all overlapping sets questions !!!
Is it easier to solve all the 2/3 overlapping set questions by Venn diagram method ?
Can this question not be solved by matrix method ?
Or is it that based on the question, the approach/method has to be chosen appropriately.

Hi Itisallinurhead,

It depends on the questions and also the preference of the person ( comfort level with different approaches )

For example.. the formula method for overlapping sets might give fast answers but I personally don't find it appealing as I am unable to visualise the problem so I prefer the Venn diagram for 3 overlapping sets problems

However, for two overlapping sets problems Iike men and women at a factor with or without college education .. I find the matrix approach faster and more intuitive.

Go through as many questions as you can get your hands on to find out what you are comfortable with and which method works fastest for you.

Here is the url to overlapping sets theory ( ofcourse from Bunuel :-) )

There seems to be a superfluity of data in this question. We are told that there are 41 persons in total and that 20 like bass. Either of these two pieces of information would have been sufficient to solve the problem.
