Solution

The correct option is **D** 2250

Let total number of students in the school be x

∴ The number of students absent on particular day =215x

Number of students present on that day=x−215x=1315x

According to question,

1315x=1950

⇒x=1950×1513=2250

∴ Total strength of school=2250

Let total number of students in the school be x

∴ The number of students absent on particular day =215x

Number of students present on that day=x−215x=1315x

According to question,

1315x=1950

⇒x=1950×1513=2250

∴ Total strength of school=2250
