500 = Total+50

Total(450) = only one paper(p) + 29+20+35 + all three (g)

285+212+127 = p + 2( 29+20+35 )+ 3g

solve above .. to get g = 45 ...

( small corrctn .. i think .. questn shud be 20 read ONLY
hindu and
times of India and 29 read ONLY hindu and Indian express
and 35
read ONLY times of India and Indian express)

The data is incorrect.
coz.
(^==>intersection & U==> union)
n(a^b^c)=n(A)+n(b)+n(c)-n(a^b)-n(b^c)-n(a^c)+n(a^b^c)
a=hindu
b=express
c=times assume
the formula fails
companies give this blunder without knowing simple basics

The answer is 45 people read all the three news papers and 321 people read only one news paper. Just draw a venn diagram with three circles and mark the corresponding parts using the given data. If you take the intersection part of all the 3 circles as 'x'. three expressios are formed as follows: 285-(20+29+x),212-(29+35+x) and 127-(20+35+x).these equations will giv people reading hindu,indian exp and times of india respectively. add (20+29+35+x) and 285-(20+29+x),212-(29+35+x) and 127-(20+35+x) and equate it to 450. x gives the intersection of 3 circles. then u can find individual readers by sybstituting in the expressions 285-(20+29+x),212-(29+35+x) and 127-(20+35+x).

only hindu=285-20-29=236
only indian ex=212-29-35=148
only time of I=127-20-35=72
only one peper=236+148+72=456>500-50
so given data is not true.
