350 students at High School High are currently enrolled in French, Spanish, or both French and Spanish. 230 students are currently enrolled in Spanish.

In the table, identify the number of students currently enrolled in French and the number of students currently enrolled in both French and Spanish. The two numbers must be consistent with each other and with the constraints above. Make exactly one choice in each column.

280

From the details given in the question:
Total Number of students =  350
Students enrolled in Spanish = 230
Solution:
Students enrolled only in French: 350-230 = 120
Let the number of students enrolled in both French and Spanish be "x"
Therefore total number of students in French = 120+x
There is only one combination of numbers such that difference is 120, and those are 140,260
Therefore x = 140
Here we had to look at the available answers to select the correct choice, there is no way of find the absolute values from the information in the question.

Let Number of students enrolled in French only = 350-230 =120
Number studetns enrolled in French and Spanish = 120 + X (any number)
And both cannot be same ....
There is some language problem
