Here's the Solution to this Question


a = 12 - tea+coffee

b - tea+coco

c - coffee+tea+coco

d - coffee+coco

e = 7 - coco+chocolate

f = 3 - coco+tea+chocolate

g - tea+chocolate+coco+coffee

h - coco+chocolate+coffee

i = 9 - tea+chocolate

j = 2 - coffee+tea+chocolate

k - chocolate+coffee

From the diagram above, the number of tea drinkers is

17+a+b+c+f+g+i+j=36\\ a+b+c+f+g+i+j=19.............(1)

Also, cocoa and chocolate is


Cocoa drinkers are

20+b+c+d+e+f+g+h=27\\ b+c+d=0\\ \implies b=c=d=0

We can implies from (1) and (2) that a+f+g+h+j+k\leq26

Numbers of coffee drinkers are

30+a+c+d+g+h+j+k=30+a+g+h+j+k\leq 30+26=56 \neq 60

This is a contradiction

Number of Tea and Coffee drinkers cannot be defined.
