Answer / guest

The holiday last for 18 days.

Let's assume the number of days as follows:

Rain in the morning and lovely afternoon = X days

Clear morning and rain in the afternoon = Y days

No rain in the morning and in the afternoon = Z days

Number of days with rain = X + Y = 13 days

Number of days with clear mornings = Y + Z = 11 days

Number of days with clear afternoons = X + Z = 12 days

Solving above 3 equations, we get X = 7, Y = 6 and Z = 5

Hence, total number of days on holiday = 18 days
