150-30=120 can speak any one or both

(55-20)=only english
(85-20)=only telgu
(35+65)= at least one
(35+65+20+30)=150 total

In the given question. n(e^t)=n(e)+n(t)-n(e or t)

n(e and t)=n - neither who speak English nor Telugu=150-30=>120.

n(e and t)=n(e)+n(t)-n(e or t)
120=55+85-n(e or t)
n(e or t)=20.

n(only Telugu)=n(t)-n(e or t)=85-20 = 65.

Total=150

English=55
Telugu=85
none/ neither English nor Telugu=30
No. of Students who speak only one or both=150-30=120
so, 120 stud's can speak english or telugu or both.
then,
No. of Stud's speak only English= 120-85(telugu)=35
"      "                 "      "     Telugu= 120-55=65
Remaining 120-(65+35)=20 stud's can speak both.

bye.
