Let there be x successful candidates in the exam.

Unsuccessful candidates = 120 – x

Total score = 35 x 120

Total score is also equal to x * 39 + (120 – x) * 15

So, x = (35 * 120 – 120 * 15)/ 24 = 120 * 20 / 24 = 100

On correction, total increase in marks = 45 – 15 = 30 marks.

Number of students = 30

So, increase in the average = 30/30 = 1 mark.

The average age increases with age. So, after 10 years, the average age is 20 + 10 = 30 years.

After the students left, there will be 32 students with the same average height. 4 ft and 2 inches

Total height = 32 x 4.17 = 133.44

Total height of 6 students is 33 ft and 4 inches.  = 33.33

New total height = 133.44 + 33.33 = 166.77

New average height = 166.77/ 38 = 4 feet 4 inches
