1
S TOTAL= 67
R TOTAL= 55

BOTH IN S & R COMMON = 35

It means
Numbers in R but not in S = 20
Numbers in S but not in R = 32

SO UNIQUE TOTAL NUMBERS IN S AND T = 20+32+ 35 (IN BOTH) = 87

Total in T = 120

Only in T and not in S and also not in R = 120-87 = 33 Answer

R = 55
S = 67
T = 120
Numbers only in R = 20
Then numbers in both S and R = 55-20 = 35
Numbers only in S = 67-35 = 32
Neither of the sets = 120-20-35-32 = 33.

IMO E

NR = Not in R

NS = Not in S

Just interpret the given data in 2x2 matrix as inline

------R--------NR------Total
S ----35-------32-----67

NS --20--------33----53

------55--------65----120

how any numbers in T are in neither R nor S = 33

E
