Correct Answer - Option 3 : Hindi


Total number of students = 72

1 out of 3 students = 1/3 = 33.33% (Approx)
We have to Calculate 1/3rd Part of 72 Students

Language which is spoken at least 1 out of 3 students = 72/3

⇒ 24

∴ Language is spoken by atleast 1 out of 3 students residing in the hostel is Hindi
