1. Hint:
Draw a Venn diagram to fill in all the numbers, starting with the last (2 liked all sports) and work backwards.
I find 17 students in all.

Not too sure how the question is supposed to be interpreted:
1. how many students liked tennis and no other sport or soccer and no other sport? (5)
2. how many students liked at least one of tennis or soccer? (13)
