Solution

The correct option is D 3

Number of elements in universal set is n(U)= 23.

             Let A, B, C, D be the sets containing people who like only Maths, only English, Maths and English

             And who doesn't like maths and English respectively?

             People who likes Maths = n(A)+ n (C)

             People who likes English = n(B) + n (C)

             People who doesn't like Maths and English =n(U)- n(A)-n(B)-n(c)

             n(A) + n(C) = 13

             n(B) + n(C) =12

             1 = 23 - n(A) -n(B) -n(C)

             Solving we get n(C) =3
