1 (a) During a survey of the ice cream preferences of students, it was found that 22 like mango, 25 like custard apple, 39 like grape, 9 like custard apple and mango, 17 like mango and grape, 20 like custard apple and grape, 6 like all flavours and 4 like none. Then how many students were surveyed? How many students like exactly one flavour, how many students like exactly two flavours?
