Solution

On drawing the Venn diagram

It is given that TCS has a total of 42 business analysts covering at least one of the three locations: Singapore, New York and London.

Therefore, (12 - x) + (14 - x) + (12 - x) + 6 + 4 + 8 + x = 42

$$\Rightarrow$$ 56 - 2x = 42 i.e. x = 7. 

Therefore, the number of analysts covering New York alone = 14 - x = 14 - 7 = 7.
