Best answer

Let U be the set of all students in the group. 

Let E be the set of all students who know English. 

Let H be the set of all students who know Hindi. 

∴ H ∪ E = U 


n(H) = 100 and n(E) = 50 

n( H U E ) = n(H) + n(E) – n(H ∩ E)

 = 100 + 50 – 25 = 125 


there are 125 students in the group.
