Solution

## The correct option is B 49We know, Mean=Sum of all data pointsTotal number of data points Here, the average number of toffees in each jar =Sum of toffees including four jarsTotal number of jars =89+74+25+84 =1965 =49 Hence, the mean 49 is the number of toffees that each of the four jars will contain after equal distribution. Notes:––––––– ∙ We can see that the mean of the data points, i.e., 49 lies between the smallest (8) and the largest (89) numbers of the data set, i.e., 8<49<89. ∙ The mean, 49 is NOT included in the given data set {89,74,25,8}.
