  • Correct Answer
    90, 1/9

Detailed Solution

Let the no. of people that use only Facebook = only Twitter = only Whatsapp = x
Let’s construct of venn diagram:

From the figure we can see that x + x + x + 8 + 20 + 20 + 15 + 10 = 100
=) 3x = 100 – 73
=) x = = 9
1.) Thus the of no people who use Whatsapp only = 9% or 9 x 1000/100 = 90
2.) % of people that use Whatsapp only = 9
% of people that use either Whatsapp or Facebook or both = 20 + 20 + 8 + 9 + 9 +15 = 81 Thus the ratio =
Correct Answer: 90, 1/9
