We Have, a + d + e + g = 70 b + d + f + g = 75 c + e + f + g = 80 Adding them we get, a + b + c + 2(d + e + f) + 3g = 225 also, a + b + c + d + e + f + g = 101 Subtracting them, (d+e+f) + 2g = 124 To maximize g, d + e + f = 0 > 2g = 124 Hence, g = 62 Correct Ans: D

A.70 B.65 C.63 D.62 E.61 wrong question. There should be 101 students in order to support the official Answer Though I have changed the total to 101, Why can't the total be 100? My Logic: Number the students from 1 to 100 A,B and C have students 162 in common. B,C have student 63 in common. Now there are 100(62+1)=37 students to be split. A can have 8 students, B can have 12 students and C can have 17 students. So in total, there are 62 students common to A,B,C.

The problem is there must be 70 stu in a , 75 in B and 80 in C. you can't change their number

Reply: 62 common students in three groups and different students are in A , B and C 8,13 and 17. so the total students = 62+8+13+17 = 101

A.70 B.65 C.63 D.62 E.61 Supposing 'x' is the number of students who can be present in all three teams, we've x+a+b+c = 101, also x+a=70 x+b=75 x+c=80 =>3*x+a+b+c=225 Therefore, 2*x = 124 x = 62

A.70 B.65 C.63 D.62 E.61 My Approach:Without the condition of total number of students, max number present in all three teams would be  70. Now given this, we are left with team B  5 extra and team C  10 extra. But this does not address the total number condition. We are left with 16 extra (unaccounted) students (101  70(common)  5(B)  10(C)) To address the total number condition, we can divide the extra 16 students into B and C groups and remove 8 students from common to make additions perfect. 708 = 62..
