11. How many children did not try any of the rides. ?

(55-20=)35 kids * 2 rides = Rs. 70

60 + 70 = Rs. 130

So, Rs. (145 – 130 = ) 15 are left for the other (85 – 55 = ) 30 kids . so only 15 of them

can take a ride and rest 15 will be left out.

145 rides were taken. 20 of them took all three, i.e. Rs. 60 were spent, so 145-60= Rs. 85

are left for the others. Total kids were 85, so rest were 65. out of these 65,

12. How many children took exactly one ride?

13. Four cities are connected by a road network as shown in the figure. In how many ways can you start from any city and come back to it without travelling on the same road more than once ?

Consider the top city, the following are the 3 routes possible, starting from the leftmos edge. Since there are 3 edges emanating from each city and the figure is erfectly symmetrical, these 3 routes are possible from each edge, hence for any given city, the total number of routes = 4 * 3 = 12.
