Draw Venn diagrams for the given data:

The set of students participating only in drama

Answer:

D = {a, b, c, d, e, f}

M = {d, g, a, h}

Set of students participating only in drama = D - (D M)

= {a, b, c, d, e, f}-({a, b, c, d, e, f} {d, g, a, h})

= {a, b, c, d, e, f} - {a, d}

Draw Venn diagrams for the given data:

The set of students participating only in music

Answer:

D = {a, b, c, d, e, f}

M = {d, g, a, h}

Set of students participating only in music = M- (M D)

= {d, g, a, h} - ({d, g, a, h} {a, b, c, d, e, f})

Draw Venn diagrams for the given data:

The set of students participating both in drama and music

Answer:

D = {a, b, c, d, e, f}

M = {d, g, a, h}

Set of students participating both in drama and music = D M

= {a, b, c, d, e, f}{d, g, a, h}
