Use this formula

P(AuBuC) = P(A) + P(B) + P(C) - P(AnB) - P(AnC) - P(BnC) + P(AnBnC)

where we want to find P(AnBnC)

500-329-186-295+83+217+63 = 53

Answer: $D.$ 53

Total number of students $= n(P)+n(C)+n(M)-n(P \cap C)-n(P \cap M)-n(C \cap M)+n(P \cap C \cap M)$

$\implies 500=329+295+186-217-83-63+x$
$\implies x=53.$
