Do you know what a "Venn Diagram" is?

(I know scrabble and caroms but I have never heard of baru. What is that?)

Re: Word problem. Ven diagrams and Syllogism
Hi,

Venn Diagrams are highly useful tools to solve questions of set theory and syllogism. In venn diagram, we draw circles to represent quantities. As you have said total of 40 students are there some are interested in only one game some in two and some in all the games. we will draw circles overlapping over each other.
