1. If 10 failed in both, that means 130-10=120 passed at least one subject.

Since 85 passed math, 60 passed science, there are 145 passes from 120 students. We conclude that 145-120=25 passed both.
Hence (b) 120-25=95 passed (or failed) exactly one subject.

For (a), 60 passed science, and 25 passed both, so 35 passed science but did not make math.

A more mathematical treatment would be:
P'(A∪B)=1-P(A∪B)
P(A)=85/130
P(B)=60/130
P'(A∪B)=1-P(A∪B)=10/130
=>
P(A∪B)=(130-10)/130=120/130

We also know that:
P(A∪B)=P(A)+P(B)-P(A∩B)
120/130=85/130+60/130-P(A∩B)
=>
P(A∩B)=85/130+60/130-120/130=25/130
The cardinality of a set is the number of members in the set.
For example, the cardinality of A is denoted by |A|, which is equal to the number of students who passed math=85.
Hence |B|=60, |A∩B|=25, |A∪B|=120.
(a)
|A'∩B|=|B|-|A∩B|=60-25=35
(b)
|A∪B|-|A∩B|=120-25=95
