You are looking for more than 5 and less than 9, meaning for students with 6,7 or 8 marbles..

10 have less than 6, means they have 5 or less..
So 25-10=15 have more than 5...

Now 4 have more than 8, so they have 9, 10 or more..
So those with more than 5 but less than 9 =15-4=11

Out of the total 25 students, if 4 students definitely have more than 8 marbles(9,10....)
and 10 students have less then 6 marbles(0,1,2,3,4,5), since we have been asked to find
the total number of students who have between 5 and 9.

The remaining 11(25-4-10) students will have between 5 and 9 marbles for sure!

Hope that clears your confusion!

We need to determine the number of students who have exactly 6, 7, or 8 marbles.

Since 10 students have more than 7 marbles, and 4 have more than 8 marbles, it must mean 10 - 4 = 6 have exactly 8 marbles. Furthermore, since 10 students have more than 7 marbles and 10 have less than 6 marbles, it must mean 25 - 10 - 10 = 5 students have 6 or 7 marbles.Thus, the number of students who have more than 5 but less than 9 marbles is 6 + 5 = 11.

Answer: B

From the stem, we have,
5 or less than 5 : 10
6 :Dont know
7 :Dont know
8 :6
>8 :4
We need to know how many have 6,7,8 marbles. That is equal to 25- ( No. of students with 5 or <5 and No. of students with >8 marbles)= 25-(10+4)=11

Ans:B
