Solution

## The correct option is A 19%Let total numbers of people be 100, So for newspapersn(A)=42,n(B)=51,n(C)=68,n(A∩B)=30n(B∩C)=28n(A∩C)=36Also given, n(¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯A∪B∪C)=8n(A∪B∪C)=100−n(¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯A∪B∪C)=100−8=92Also,n(A∪B∪C)=n(A)+n(B)+n(C)−n(A∩B)−n(B∩C)−n(A∩C)+n(A∩B∩C)92=42+51+68−30−28−36+n(A∩B∩C)n(A∩B∩C)=25Now, for people who read only two papers=n(A∩B)+n(B∩C)+n(A∩C)−3n(A∩B∩C)=30+28+36−75=19Thus, 19% people read only two newspapers.Hence, A is correct.
