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

Total number of candidates = 200.

Number of candidates who had at least one of the three = n(A ∪ B ∪ C),

where A is the set of those who have a two wheeler, B is the set of those who have a credit card, and C is the set of those who have a mobile phone.

n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) - {n(A ∩ B) + n(B ∩ C) + n(C ∩ A)} + n(A ∩ B ∩ C)

Therefore, n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = 100 + 70 + 140 - {40 + 30 + 60} + 10

Or n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = 190.

n(A ∪ B ∪ C) is the number of candidates who had at least one of three.

As 190 candidates who attended the interview had at least one of the three,

(200 - 190 = 10) candidates had none of three.
