They have said that 65 such dishes are there and how is it possible to add only these three dishes.

Dish means what here?
Is it dishes to eat or dish to serve?

Please clear.

They are saying about 65 dishes, how it is possible to take 3 dishes equal to 65?

Mido said: (Mar 4, 2016)  
Because, it says every two guest used one bowl, so we divided the number of each dish to get it.

So, x present the number of the guests because we have already the number of dishes 65, so we in the first dish every two used 1 dish that's means x divided by every 2 guest to has number of dish. The same with second and third dish. So, total of the party, the total dishes used equal number of guest so,

x\2 + x\3 + x\4 = 65.

For rice (1,2) (3,4) (5,6) (7,8) (9,10) (11,12) [total of 6 dishes].
For dal (1,2,3) (4,5,6) (7,8,9) (10,11,12) [total of 4 dishes].
For meat (1,2,3,4) (5,6,7,8) (9,10,11,12) [total of 3 dishes].
So 12 guests used 13 dishes,
So 13 dishes by 12 guests,
65 dishes by x guests,
13 : 12 :: 65 : x.
x = 60.

There are total x people from them;
x/2 is rice,
x/3 is dal and,
x/4 is meat,

If we add them we get them and solve the equation we get the answer as 60.
