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.

Re: 4 variable Venn diagram, Please help me in solving below

I think there's something wrong.
We know that
\(\displaystyle \qq |EM|=|HEM|\)
then
\(\displaystyle \qq |\bar{H}EM|=0.\)
Now,
\(\displaystyle \qq |EMS|=|HEMS|+|\bar{H}EMS|=|HEMS|\leq|HM|\),
but
\(\displaystyle \qq |EMS|=2|HM|\)
therefore
\(\displaystyle \qq 2|HM|\leq|HM|\)
which means that
\(\displaystyle \qq |HM|=0,\)
but we know that
\(\displaystyle \qq |HMS|=5.\)
Oops.
