I find that difficult to believe, since |E|=77 and |M|=91.

You are misunderstanding. There are 91 students who study math. At this point we do not not know how many study only math.

We know that $\qq |EM|=|HEM|$ then $\qq |\bar{H}EM|=0.$ Now, $\qq |EMS|=|HEMS|+|\bar{H}EMS|=|HEMS|\leq|HM|$, but $\qq |EMS|=2|HM|$ therefore $\qq 2|HM|\leq|HM|$ which means that $\qq |HM|=0,$ but we know that $\qq |HMS|=5.$ Oops.
