Solution

## The correct option is B 79Total number of students = 6250 Number of students forming a square = 6250 - 9 = 6241 Thus, 6241 students form a big square which has number of rows equal to the number of students in each row. Let the number of students in each row be x, then the number of rows =x Therefore, x×x=6241 x2=6241 √x=√6241=79 Hence, there are 79 students in each row of the square formed.
