The Venn diagram above shows eight regions defined below:

A Physics only

B Music only

C Geography only

D Physics and geography but not music

E Music and geography but not physics

F Physics and music but not geography

G All three subjects

H None of the subjects

G=0, H=24 (no students took all 3 subjects, and 24 took none of the subjects).

A=6, C=8, B=4 (only one subject).

D+E+F=7 (two subjects).

C+D+E=14 (geography total), D+E=6 and F=1.

B+E+F=9 (music total), so E=9-4-1=4 and D=6-4=2.

1) Total physics=A+D+F=6+2+1=9.

2) Total students=A+B+C+D+E+F+G+H=6+4+8+7+0+24=49.
