Correct Answer - Option 3 : 12

Given:

Number of students = 36

Number of chocolates each student gets = 2

Calculation:

In a class comprising of 36 students, each student gets 2 chocolates

⇒ Total chocolates distributed in the class = 36 × 2 = 72

Suppose x students gets 3 chocolates

∴ 3x = 72

⇒ x = 24

Number of students who doesn't get any chocolate = 36 – 24

⇒ 12 

∴ Number of students who didn't get any chocolate is 12
