I truly applaud you for posting daily brain teasers, but here, again, your wording could be more precise. When you say, "Both the rectangle and the circle" you are not excluding the stars that are in the circle and rectangle from those that are also in the triangle. You should say, "Only in the rectangle and circle," or perhaps "Both in the rectangle and circle but not the triangle." Precision of wording is EVERYTHING when writing a brain teaser.

You are so right. I think I have worded these ones like that in the past. That is what I get for creating these things at 1 in the morning! Thanks for the tip. I will change this one as you suggested and try to pay more attention in the future.
