    Explanation

    Explanation (1-2):

    Not Adventurous = 4 + 5 + 3 + 2 + 1 + 6

    Not Adventurous but Original = 5 + 3 + 2 + 6

    Not Adventurous but Original and Humble = 2 + 6

    Not Adventurous but Original, Humble and Active = 6

    Similarly,

    Not Humble but Original, Adventurous and Active = 8

    Explanation (3 - 4):

    Explanation (5 - 6):

    Explanation (7):

    15 children can play both Guitar and Sitar

    27 children can play Guitar

    So, 27 – 15 = 12 children can only play Guitar

    60 – 12 = 48 children can play Sitar

    48 – 15 = 33 can play only Sitar

    Explanation (8) :

    Explanation (9) :

     

    Number of players who plays all the three games

    Number of players who plays Hockey alone or Football alone

    = Total Number of players – (Number of players who plays any and only two games + Number of players who plays Cricket + Number of players who plays all the three games)

    = 200 – (50 + 60 + 10) = 80

    Explanation (10) :

    Let x be the number of students studying both the subjects, which means it is also the number of students studying neither of the two subjects. 1/4 th of the students who study Accountancy, also studies Mathematics. If the Accountancy students who also studies Mathematics are x, then all Accountancy students are 4x, and those who do not study Mathematics are 3x. Also, let y be the number of students who study Mathematics but not Accountancy. The total number of students who studies Mathematics is 10 fewer than those who study Accountancy only.

    x + y = 3x – 10

    10 = 2x – y

    Total students = 200

    3x + x + y + x = 200

    5x + y = 200

    We have two equations with two unknowns. Add the equations (2x – y = 10) and (5x + y = 200), and we get

    7x = 210, x = 30 and y = 50
