2. CAT - Venn Diagram

In a popular vegetable market, vendors sell tomatoes, cabbages, onions and potatoes. 56 sell tomatoes, 41 sell cabbages, 44 sell onions and 60 sell potatoes. The number of vendors selling only potatoes is four times the number of vendors selling only cabbages. The number of vendors selling only tomatoes is thrice the number of vendors selling only onions. The number of vendors selling only onions and potatoes is twice the number of vendors selling only tomatoes and cabbages. The number of vendors selling only potatoes and tomatoes is twice the number of vendors selling only onions and cabbages. The number of vendors selling only cabbages and potatoes is twice the number of vendors selling only onions and tomatoes. The number of vendors selling any three of the vegetables is equal. There is at least one vendor who sells only tomatoes. 35 vendors sell only one of these vegetables and 10 vendors sell all four.

Q1. How many vendors sell tomatoes and potatoes?

An engineering college invited 600 students for the counselling round. Two-thirds of the students were rejected right away for insufficient documents and the rest were given a choice of atleast one branch out of A, B and C. For every two students who were given the choice of only branch A, one more was given the choice of only branch B. For every five students who were given the choice of only branch C, three less were given the choice of only branch B. The number of students who got the choice of both B and C was 60 and the ratio of students who got the choice of both A and C to those who got the choice of both A and B was 5 : 7.

Q1. The number of students who got exactly two choices was 60 and the ratio of the number of students who got the choice of both C and B but not A to the number of students who got the choice of both A and C but not B is 2 : 1. How many students got a choice of all three branches

6. CAT - Sets & Venn Diagram

On Republic day 550 students of model high school were present for a special assembly. Once the assembly was over, principal asked the students to pick chocolates of their choice from 3 boxes kept at corner of the ground. Boxes 1, 2 and 3 contained chocolates Milkybar, DAIRY MILK and 5 STAR respectively. Owing to lack of teachers, students went havoc and picked as many chocolates as they could.

Some more information is given below.

A. 237 students picked DAIRY MILK, 246 students picked Milkybar and 275 students picked 5 STAR.

B. 44 students picked all three types. No one picked more than one from any box. 45 students were disappointed to see all boxes empty

Q1. If the number of students who picked both DAIRY MILK and Milkybar but not 5 STAR is 79, then how many students picked only 5 STAR?

Q2. If the number of students who picked only Milkybar is 87, how many students picked both DAIRY MILK and 5 STAR? (Use data from previous question if necessary.)

Q3. Number of students who picked only 5 STAR is greater than the number of students who picked only Milkybar. Also, the number of students who picked only Milkybar is greater than number of students who picked only DIARY MILK.

What is the maximum number of students who picked both 5 STAR and Milkybar but not DAIRY MILK?

Q4. Fifty DAIRY MILK, fifty Milkybars and fifty 5 STARs expired. At least ten expired chocolates of each kind had gone to children picking more than one chocolate. If students do not eat expired chocolates, what will be the difference between the maximum and the minimum number of students who could not eat chocolates?
