In canteen: Boys & Girls
B + G = 331

Returned: Boys & Girls
B + G = 91

Leftover in Canteen: Boys & Girls
331-91 = 240

Hence,
4/5 B + 2/3 G = 240

G = 331-B
4/5B + 2/3 (331-B) = 240
4/5B + 2*331/3 - 2/3B = 240
2B/15 = 240 - 662/3
2B/15 = 58/3
B = 58*15/6 = 145

initially 145 boys were in the canteen.

B=145
G = 331-145 = 186
4/5*145 + 2/3*186 = 116 + 124 = 240
