**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Decreasing order of average = Decreasing order of total runs scored.

Runs scored by :

A = 70 + 105 + 55 + 135 = 365

B = 40 + 35 + 95 + 72 = 242

C = 60 + 68 + 75 + 85 = 288

D = 95 + 45 + 55 + 60 = 255

E = 105 + 110 + 125 + 122 = 462

$\therefore$ Decreasing order = **E > A > C > D > B**

=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (D)**

Sum of the cubes of the first $n$ natural numbers = $[\frac{n(n+1)}{2}]^2$

=> Sum of the cubes of the first 13 natural numbers = $[\frac{13(13+1)}{2}]^2$

=> $(13)^2\times49$

$\therefore$ Required average = $\frac{(13)^2\times49}{13}$

= $13\times49=637$

=> Ans – (D)

**3) Answer (B)**

Average of 50 results = 30

=> Sum of 50 results = $30\times50=1500$

After correcting the mistake new sum = $1500-33+73=1540$

=> Correct average = $\frac{1540}{50}=30.8$

=> Ans – (B)

**4) Answer (A)**

Average runs scored by a batsman in 7 matches = 53

=> Total runs scored in 7 matches = $53\times7=371$

Similarly, total runs scored in 9 matches = $33\times9=297$

$\therefore$ Average runs scored by the batsman in 16 matches = $\frac{(371+297)}{16}$

= $\frac{668}{16}=41.75$

=> Ans – (A)

**5) Answer (C)**

Let the number of students who passed the examination = $x$

=> Number of students who failed = $(150-x)$

Average marks of 150 students = 40

=> Total marks = $40\times150=6000$

Similarly, total marks scored by passed students = $60x$

According to ques,

=> $60x+20(150-x)=6000$

=> $60x+3000-20x=6000$

=> $40x=6000-3000=3000$

=> $x=\frac{3000}{40}=75$

$\therefore$ The number of students who passed the examination = **75**

=> Ans – (C)

**6) Answer (B)**

Total production (in ‘000 tonnes) of all companies in year 2013

= 386 + 402 + 268 + 360 + 450 = 1866

=> Required average = $\frac{1866}{5}=373.2$

=> Ans – (B)

**7) Answer (C)**

Average of 11 results = 182

=> Sum of 11 results = $182\times11=2002$

Similarly, sum of first 6 results = $199\times6=1194$

And sum of last 6 results = $161\times6=966$

$\therefore$ 6th result = $(1194+966)-2002=158$

=> Ans – (C)

**8) Answer (A)**

Average of 45 results = 27

=> Sum of 45 results = $27\times45=1215$

After correcting the mistake new sum = $1215-93+39=1161$

=> Correct average = $\frac{1161}{45}=25.8$

=> Ans – (A)

**9) Answer (A)**

Total marks obtained by all six students in subject R

= 80 + 78 + 55 + 74 + 83 + 95 = 465

=> Required average = $\frac{465}{6}=77.5$

=> Ans – (A)

**10) Answer (C)**

Total marks in the examination = 432

Average marks per subject = $\frac{432}{5}=86.4$

Marks obtained in :

Hindi = $\frac{65^\circ}{360^\circ}\times432=78$

English = $\frac{75^\circ}{360^\circ}\times432=90$

Maths = $\frac{80^\circ}{360^\circ}\times432=96$

Science = $\frac{70^\circ}{360^\circ}\times432=84$

Social Science = $\frac{70^\circ}{360^\circ}\times432=84$

Thus, only in **2** subjects (English and Maths), marks obtained are more than the average marks per subject

=> Ans – (C)

**11) Answer (B)**

Sum of ages of husband and wife at the time of their marriage = $23\times2=46$ years

Sum of the family after 5 years = 5 years of husband + 5 years of wife + 1 year of child

=> Total age = $46+5+5+1=57$ years

=> Required average = $\frac{57}{3}=19$ years

=> Ans – (B)

**12) Answer (A)**

Average height of 6 friends = 167 cm

=> Sum of height of 6 friends = $167\times6=1002$ cm

When the boy with height 162 cm left, sum of height of remaining 5 friends = $1002-162=840$ cm

=> Required average = $\frac{840}{5}=168$ cm

=> Ans – (A)

**13) Answer (B)**

Let average weight of 8 persons = $x$ kg and weight of new person = $y$ kg

=> Sum of weights of persons = $8x$ kg

According to ques,

=> $\frac{8x-65+y}{8}=x+2.5$

=> $8x-65+y=8x+20$

=> $y=20+65=85$

$\therefore$ The weight of the new person = **85 kg**

=> Ans – (B)

**14) Answer (D)**

Let the 8 numbers be $x_1,x_2,…..,x_8$

Sum of these 8 numbers = $x_1+x_2+…..+x_8=27\times8=216$ ————–(i)

If each number is multiplied by 8, => Numbers = $8x_1,8x_2,…..,8x_8$

Sum = $8(x_1+x_2+…..+x_8)$

= $8\times216$

$\therefore$ New average = $\frac{8\times216}{8}=216$

=> Ans – (D)

**15) Answer (B)**

Average weight of 30 girls = 16 kg

=> Total weight of 30 girls = $16\times30=480$ kg

Similarly, total weight of remaining $(50-30=20)$ boys = $15.5\times20=310$ kg

$\therefore$ Average weight of all the students in the class = $\frac{(480+310)}{50}$

= $\frac{79}{5}=15.8$ kg

=> Ans – (B)
