Solution

## The correct option is D 80 kgsHere,Average weight of three men X,Y and Z=75 kgs.∴ Total weight of three men X,Y and Z=75×3=225 kgs.A joins the group and average weight =80 kgs∴ Total weight of this group =80×4=320 kgs.∴ weight of A=320−225=95 kgs.∴ weight of B is 5 kg more than A.∴ weight of B=95+5=100 kgs.Total weight of X,Y,A and Z=320 kgs.Total weight of X,Y,A,B and Z=320+100=420 kgs.Total weight of Y,Z,A and B=85×4=340 kg.∴ weight of X=(420−340)=80 kgs.
