2. Here there are total 54 students who passed in English,while there are total 21 students who passed in both E and C.let say if there are x students common in all passed then
54= (21-x)+x+(40-x)+8
x=15
So in all three subjects there are 15 students who passed.
now
80=54+57+(6+15+7+x)-21-40-22+15
HERE x denotes students passed in chinese only
x=9
