Among 60 members of a club, 6p players
play soccer, 11p players play tennis, 8p
players play golf and 2p players play
none of the games. If p players play all of
the games, how many players play only
one game?
(1) The number of players who play
soccer and golf but not tennis is half the
number of players who play any other
combination of two sports
(2) p = 3

(2) p = 3


(5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z) + x + y + z + p = 60
23p - x - y - z = 60
We have to find (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z).

(1) y = (1/2) * (x + z); NOT sufficient.
(2) p = 3 implies 23(3) - x - y - z = 60 or x + y + z = 9
So, we can find the value of (5p - x - y) + (10p - x - z) + (7p - y - z); SUFFICIENT.

The correct answer is B.
