Since, every student liked the movie $P$ and Devendra liked only one movie, therefore Devendra definitely liked $P$.
Nine students liked the movie $Q$ and hence everyone except Devendra liked the movie $P$.
Shefali liked only 2 movies and they have to be $P$ and $Q$.
Hence, every student except both Devendra and Shefali liked the movie $V$.
Following similar logic, we can get the list of the students who did not like each of the given eight movies.
The following is the list of all the students who did not like each of the given eight movies:
P - 0
Q - 1 – Devendra
V - 2 – Devendra and Shefali
R - 9 – Devendra, Shefali, Amit, Richa, Nitin, Priyanka, Shreyas, Ashraf, Abhishek
S - 6 – Devendra, Shefali, Amit, Richa, Nitin, Priyanka
T - 4 – Devendra, Shefali, Amit, Richa
U - 7 – Devendra, Shefali, Amit, Richa, Nitin, Priyanka, Shreyas
W - 8 – Devendra, Shefali, Amit, Richa, Nitin, Priyanka, Shreyas, Abhishek
So Option (B) is correct choice.
