$\begin {array} {1 1} (A)\;6 & \quad (B)\;8 \\ (C)\;16 & \quad (D)\;24 \end {array}$

Draw a Venn diagram (circles) to represent the students taking art and music.

The circles will overlap. The circle for art contains 26 students.

The circle for music contains 18 students. Since 2 students take BOTH

art and music (place 2 in the area where the circles overlap), the remainder

of the art circle contains 24 students and the remainder of the music circle

contains 16 students. Adding all values (24 + 16 + 2) gives a total of 42

students. Of the class of 50 students, 8 do not take art or music.
