Solution :-

Consider C as the set of people who like cricket

T as the set of people who like tennis

n(C ∪ T) = 65

n(C) = 40

n(C ∩ T) = 10

It can be written as

n(C ∪ T) = n(C) + n(T) – n(C ∩ T)

Substituting the values

65 = 40 + n(T) – 10

By further calculation

65 = 30 + n(T)

So we get

n(T) = 65 – 30 = 35

Hence, 35 people like tennis.

We know that,

(T – C) ∪ (T ∩ C) = T

So we get,

(T – C) ∩ (T ∩ C) = Φ

Here

n (T) = n (T – C) + n (T ∩ C)

Substituting the values

35 = n (T – C) + 10

By further calculation

n (T – C) = 35 – 10 = 25

Therefore, 25 people like only tennis.
