Correct Answer - Option 3 : B

Given:

Total number of persons = 50

Number of persons who go to work by train = 18

Number of persons who go to work by train = 26

The number of persons who go neither by train nor by bus = 8

Calculation:

Number of people who use both train and bus to go to work = (Number of persons who go to work by train) + (Number of persons who go to work by train) - (Number of people who use either train or bus to go to work)

⇒ Number of people who use either train or bus to go to work = (total person) - (The number of persons who go neither by train nor by bus)

⇒ Number of people who use either train or bus to go to work = 50 - 8 = 42

⇒ Number of people who use both train and bus to go to work = 26 + 18 - 42 = 2

∴ The number of people who use both train and bus to go to work is 2.
