Solution

The correct option is C $$875$$ and $$525$$
Let No. of boys = x
No. of girls $$=\left(1400-x\right)$$
$$ \Rightarrow Average = \frac{x \left(68\right)+\left(1400-x \right)72}{1400}$$
$$\Rightarrow \left(69.5\right)\times 1400 = 68x+72\times 1400-72x$$
No of boys $$= x = 875$$
No of girls $$=525$$
