Let x : Number of persons reading only Anandbazar  

     y  : Number of persons reading only Ganashakti

    z  : Number of persons reading both  

     Hence ,

     x + 2y + z  =  65

     x  + y + z   =  52

==>   y  =   13

     Hence ,

   x + z            =  52  -  13

                       =  39

 

Hence , number of persons reading only 1 newspaper in Aghosh Colony   =   39
