**Instructions**

Help Distress (HD) is an NGO involved in providing assistance to people suffering from natural disasters. Currently, it has 37 volunteers. They are involved in three projects: Tsunami Relief (TR) in Tamil Nadu, Flood Relief (FR) in Maharashtra, and Earthquake Relief (ER) in Gujarat. Each volunteer working with Help Distress has to be involved in at least one relief work project.

- A Maximum number of volunteers are involved in the FR project. Among them, the number of volunteers involved in FR project alone is equal to the volunteers having additional involvement in the ER project.

- The number of volunteers involved in the ER project alone is double the number of volunteers involved in all the three projects.

- 17 volunteers are involved in the TR project.

- The number of volunteers involved in the TR project alone is one less than the number ofvolunteers involved in ER project alone.
- Ten volunteers involved in the TR project are also involved in at least one more project.

**Question 8: **After some time, the volunteers who were involved in all the three projects were asked to withdraw from one project. As a result, one of the volunteers opted out of the TR project, and one opted out of the ER project, while the remaining ones involved in all the three projects opted out of the FR project. Which of the following statements, then, necessarily follows?

a) The lowest number of volunteers is now in TR project.

b) More volunteers are now in FR project as compared to ER project.

c) More volunteers are now in TR project as compared to ER project.

d) None of the above.

**Question 9: **After the withdrawal of volunteers, as indicated in the previous question, some new volunteers joined the NGO. Each one of them was allotted only one project in a manner such that, the number of volunteers working in one project alone for each of the three projects became identical. At that point, it was also found that the number of volunteers involved in FR and ER projects was the same as the number of volunteers involved in TR and ER projects. Which of the projects now has the highest number of volunteers?

a) ER

b) FR

c) TR

d) Cannot be determined

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Let ‘100x’ be the number of students who joined XCRI last year.

Let ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’ and d be the number of students who play 1 game, 2 games, 3 games and 4 games respectively.

Therefore,

a+b+c+d = 100x … (1)

a+2b+3c+4d = 70x+75x+80x+85x

a+2b+3c+4d = 310x … (2)

By equation (2) – (1)

b+2c+3d = 210x

We have to minimize ‘d’ for that we have to maximize c. But c $\leq$ 100x

At c$_{max}$ = 90x, d$_{min}$ = 10x

Therefore, we can say that the minimum percentage of students who play all four games = 10%.

**2) Answer: 7**

P = {1,2,3,4} and Q = {2,3,5,6,}

PΔQ = {1, 4, 5, 6}

R = {1,3,7,8,9} and S = {2,4,9,10}

RΔS = {1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10}

(PΔQ)Δ(RΔS) = {2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10}

Thus, there are 7 elements in (PΔQ)Δ(RΔS) .

hence, 7 is the correct answer.

**3) Answer (D)**

Assume the number of members who can play exactly 1 game = I

The number of members who can play exactly 1 game = II

The number of members who can play exactly 1 game = III

I+2II+3III=144+123+132=399….(1)

I+II+III=256……(2)

=> II+2III=143…..(3)

Also, II+3III=58+25+63=146 ……(4)

=> III = 3 (From 3 and 4)

=> II =137

=> I = 116

The members who play only tennis = 123-58-25+3 = 43

**4) Answer (A)**

Given : $e = 4$

$FD = 48$, => $a + b + d + e = 48$

$d = 2b$ and $d = 4e$

$SA = 124$, => $d + e + f + g = 124$

$d = e + f$ and $h = 59$

To find : $c = ?$

Solution : $d = 4e = 4 \times 4 = 16$

=> $b = \frac{d}{2} = \frac{16}{2} = 8$

=> $f = d – e = 16 – 4 = 12$

=> $a = 48 – b – d – e = 48 – 8 – 16 – 4 = 20$

=> $g = 124 – d – e – f = 124 – 16 – 4 – 12 = 92$

Now, we know that, $a + b + c + d + e + f + g + h = 240$

=> $20 + 8 + c + 16 + 4 + 12 + 92 + 59 = 240$

=> $c + 211 = 240$

=> $c = 240 – 211 = 29$

**5) Answer (B)**

We know that x + y + z = T and x + 2y + 3z = R, where

x = number of members belonging to exactly 1 set = 70

y = number of members belonging to exactly 2 sets

z = number of members belonging to exactly 3 sets = 10

T = Total number of members

R = Repeated total of all the members = (40+50+60) = 150

Thus we have two equations and two unknowns. Solving this we get y = 25

So, 25 people belong to exactly 2 clubs.

**6) Answer (B)**

6+x+22+x+6y/5 = 50

=> 5x + 3y = 55

Since y/5 is even, y should be a multiple of 10

The only possible value is 10

So, y = 10 and x = 5

No. of oak leaves = 17

**7) Answer (B)**

The total number of projects = 2(3+6+8+2) – 1 = 38 – 1 = 37

So, 19 + 2(x+y) – 16 = 37

=> x+y = 17

The number of projects in which Medha alone is involved is 17-16 = 1

But the number of projects in which Gyani alone is involved cannot be uniquely determined

**8) Answer (B)**

So we can see that even if volunteers are withdrawn , the number of volunteers in FR are more as in, total if we calculate comes out to be more. Hence option B.

**9) Answer (A)**

Consider p volunteers be added to TR project and q be added to each of FR and ER projects.

Then, 7 + p = 8 + q => p = q + 1

Also, Number of volunteers working on TR = 7 + q + 1 + 4 + 5 = 17 + q

Number of volunteers working on FR = 17 + q

Number of volunteers working on ER = 18 + q.

So if we take any values we get ER greater than both FR and TR.

**10) Answer (C)**

Number of people owning exactly 2 articles = 9

Number of people owning exactly 3 articles = 1

Applying AUBUC formula, we get

AUBUC = 22+15+14 – 9 -2*(1)=40

Number of people who do not own any article = 50-40 = 10
