Let A = set of students who failed in CET

B = set of students who failed in NEET

C = set of students who failed in JEE

X = set of all students

∴ n(X) = 200, n(A) = 35, n(B) = 40, n(C) = 40,

n(A ∩ B) = 20, n(B ∩ C) = 17, n(A ∩ C) = 15,

n(A ∩ B ∩ C) = 5

(i) n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) – n(A ∩ B) – n(B ∩ C) – n(A ∩ C) + n(A ∩ B ∩ C)

= 35 + 40 + 40 – 20 – 17 – 15 + 5

= 68

∴ No. of students who did not fail in any exam

= n(X) – n(A ∪ B ∪ C)

= 200 – 68

= 132

(ii) No. of students who failed in NEET or JEE entrance = n(B ∪ C)

= n(B) + n(C) – n(B ∩ C)

= 40 + 40 – 17

= 63
