Diagrammatic Approach -

It is quite clear from the diagram that the number of people at the party were 60 + 20 + 40 = 120

Mathematical approach :

Let n(A) be the no. of persons that prefers android phones , the no of persons that prefers IOS be n(B) and n(A∩B) be the persons who liked both may prefer both.

Thus using the formula n(AUB) = n(A) + n(B) – n(A∩B)

n(AUB) = 80 + 60 – 20 = 120

The question is **"How many people was the survey conducted?"**

Choice A is the correct answer.
