Unemployment is a condition where a person wants to work but he/she is unable to find work. Unemployment can be divided into three parts:

1). Structural Unemployment - Unemployment caused due to lack or mismatch of skills.

2). Frictional Unemployment - Unemployment caused when people are switching jobs.

3). Cyclical Unemployment - Unemployment caused due to change in business cycles like a recession

Unemployment = Structural + Frictional + Cyclical

We can use the above equation to find structural unemployment in 2005,

500 = Structural + 150 + 180

500 = Structural + 330

Structural Unemployment = 170

The number of people who were structurally unemployed in 2005 is 170. Hence, the correct answer is the third Option i.e. 170.
