Show Answer

Correct Answer: Option: 3

Let Gautam’s score be g. Also, let x be the average of all 22 students so that the total scores of all 22 students =22x.

From the first condition:

22x-g = 21×62 … (1)

From the second condition:

$\begin{align} & 22x\text{ }-82.5\text{ }=\text{ }21\left( x-1 \right) \\ & \Rightarrow 22x-21x=82.5-21 \\ & \Rightarrow x=61.5 \\ \end{align}$

Putting x=61.5 in (1), we get g = 51.
