Solution

The correct option is **B** 30

According to given data, runs scored by Naresh in first 4 matches =48×4=192

Average of 5 matches is 60, so total runs scored after 5 matches =60×5=300

⇒ Score of 5th match =300−192=108

Now in 6th match, he scores 12 runs more than this, so, he scored 120 in the 6th match.

Hence total runs scored in 6 matches =300+120=420

Now average of last five matches is 78, so runs scored in last 5 matches =78×5=390

∴ Runs scored in first match =420−390=30

According to given data, runs scored by Naresh in first 4 matches =48×4=192

Now in 6th match, he scores 12 runs more than this, so, he scored 120 in the 6th match.

Hence total runs scored in 6 matches =300+120=420

Now average of last five matches is 78, so runs scored in last 5 matches =78×5=390

∴ Runs scored in first match =420−390=30
