31 chocolates missing
since 119 chocolates were present
If you count in pairs = 118, one remain = 1
If you count in threes = 117, two remain = 2
If you count in fours = 116, three remain = 3
If you count in fives = 115, four remain = 4
If you count in sixes = 114, five remain = 5
If you count in sevens = 119, no chocolate remain
