Number of candidates who had none of the three = Total number of candidates - number of candidates who had at least one of three devices.

Total number of candidates = 200.

Number of candidates who had at least one of the three = A U B U C, where A is the set of those who have a two wheeler, B the set of those who have a credit card and C the set of those who have a mobile phone.

We know that AUBUC = A + B + C - {A n B + B n C + C n A} + A n B n C
Therefore, AUBUC = 100 + 70 + 140 - {40 + 30 + 60} + 10
Or AUBUC = 190.

As 190 candidates who attended the interview had at least one of the three gadgets, 200 - 190 = 10 candidates had none of three.
