Solution

The correct option is A

51.25%


Number of boys in the school = 90
Mean marks of boys =45%
Total marks of 90 boys =90×45=4050
Number of girls in the school = 30
Mean marks of girls =70%
Total marks of 30 girls =30×70=2100
Total marks secured by 90 boys and 30 girls
= 4050 + 2100 = 6150
Number of boys and girls who have appeared for exam from the school
= 90 + 30 = 120
Average marks % of school
=6150120=51.25%
