So the sample space consist of n(S) = 60

Let A be the event that student opted for NCC and B be the event that the student opted for NSS.

P (A or B) = P(A) + P(B) –P(A and B)  (ii) P(student opted neither NCC nor NSS)

P(not A and not B) =  (by De Morgan’s law) (iii) P(student opted NSS but not NCC)

n(B - A) = n(B) – n (A B)

32 – 24 = 8
