So in that case, I may have to disagree with your answer, if that is the definition, I make <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">three as 1, 2 and 3 are in overlapped circles</span hide> <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

If you apply Tony's description <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Each circle has a number in the centre of it. That number is the count of how many other numbers appear in that particular circle</span hide> you will see that <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">the circle with x in the middle contains two other numbers, namely 1 and 2. So x = 2.</span hide>
