According to question answer must be 6, because 6 only represnts married trained nurses.

Sundar said: (Jun 14, 2011)  

But, Married trained nurses for operation theatre.

Operation theatre is in Hospital right. So, 5 is the correct answer.

Nayan Das said: (Jun 24, 2011)  
I think the answer must be 6 according to the demand of the question.

Meenu said: (Sep 19, 2011)  
No 5 is the right answer because the question is only married trained nurses, so the diagram circle, triangle (represents nurses in hosp) and rectangle where intersect is the married trained nurses to the hosp. So the answer is 5 only.

Neha said: (Sep 19, 2011)  
The answer should be 6. Answer is 5 if the trained nurses in operation theatre are those who are in the hospital. Therefore the intersection of trained nurses, nurses in operation theatre, and the married nurses.

Sowmi Siva said: (Dec 23, 2011)  
I think 6 may be correct, because the hospital nurses may not be trained, but the question was only trained nurses.

Jagdish Chandra said: (Sep 16, 2012)  
Sundar why are you involving operation theatre in nurses matter, operation theatre is a place where hospital management requires nurses to work. It is a workplace. Question saying clearly "only married trained nurses" not all nurses. So option 'D' (6) is the correct answer.

Pallav said: (Jan 2, 2014)  
The answer should be 6 since 5 is coming under triangle which definitely is nurse but not necessarily trained nurse or married.

Bharath Kumar Reddy.Deva said: (Feb 3, 2014)  
6 is the correct answer, why because triangle represents-- nurses in hospital, square represents---trained nurses, circle represents---only married population.

In the question he asked only married trained nurses so 6 only belongs to married trained nurses.

5 is not correct because there may be untrained nurses also.

Hoshyar Singh Bhatti said: (Apr 22, 2014)  
Hospital management requires nurses from the hospital not from outside so 5 is the correct answer.

Gop@L said: (Jun 5, 2014)  
In this questions have two answers 5 as well as 6.

Both have reasons.

Dnyaneshwar Patil said: (Sep 4, 2014)  
As the nurses required for operation they must be in hospital.

Nishant said: (Sep 28, 2014)  
Answer must be 5+6 = 11.

Deepak Kumar said: (Nov 26, 2014)  
The answer given is wrong because 5 coming under the triangle which means nurse in the hospital but according to question they are asking 4 trained and married girls that's why the answer is 6.

Uma Sharma said: (Jul 22, 2015)  
Answer 5 is correct. Because trained nurses who are married and who are working in hospital. So that's why it is correct.

Sriparna said: (Aug 20, 2015)  
I think 6 is the correct answer because they asked only for "married trained nurses".

Joshitha said: (Oct 15, 2015)  
Actually the correct answer is 6 according to the given information.

Shiva Ram said: (Dec 18, 2015)  
According to the given pie chart the correct answer is 5. Because the question was married trained nurses so the answer will be 5.

Shubhangi said: (Mar 21, 2016)  
I don't agree with answer no.5 because the question was say only married and trained nurses they have ask married and nurses so answer 5 is correct.

6 answer is totally correct.

Aroks said: (Jun 28, 2016)  
The correct answer is 5 because all trained nurses are not in the hospital.

Harsha said: (Apr 2, 2017)  
According to the question, the MARRIED TRAINED NURSES represents the digit 6, as NURSES IN THE HOSPITAL may or may not be trained.

So, the answer is 6.

Alisha said: (Jun 3, 2017)  
What is the actual answer? please tell me.

Aak said: (Oct 4, 2017)  
Hi, guys, this is a trick question.
The answer is 5.
The question states:
If hospital management requires only married trained nurses for operation theater, which part of the diagram should be chosen by him?

So this means that the nurses should be:
1. Married
2. Trained
3. Working in a hospital(here operation theatre is the SAME as a hospital).

So, the correct answer is 5 (which is the overlapping part of the rectangle, triangle, and circle.
Most people here have confusion in the 'Nurse in hospital part' but Operation Theatre is in a Hospital, so you should take it as the same thing.
Hope it helps.

Vaibhav Sanap said: (Jul 27, 2018)  
5 is correct answer because total 11 nurses are trained & married but only 5 among them are in the hospital. So the answer is 5.

Hope this explanation helps.

Arnav said: (Sep 6, 2018)  
Answer will be 5 as it is written that trained nurses and nurses work in hospitals only so trained nurses and nurses are same.

Lokesh Bs said: (Jan 26, 2019)
