Assume total children=100.
Good =40 (given in last sentence)
So NOT Good=60.

Good but NOT Celebrate Christmas = 10 (given in the first line )
So Good and celebrate= 40-10=30 which is 50% of who celebrated Christmas. thus, Number who celebrated Christmas= 60.

Now fill the gaps i.e.
Celebrated Christmas but NOT Good =30 &
NOT CELEBRATED CHRISTMAS & NOT GOOD= 30. (Option D).
