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.

I think there's something wrong.
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.
