Solution

## The correct option is C 85 We Know, Average =Sum of all observationsTotal number of observations Here, Average =Total marksTotal number of students 65=3080+Marks scored by Arjun+ Marks scored by Karan50. Since marks scored by Arjun = Marks scored by Karan Marks scored by Arjun + Marks scored by Karan = 2 × Marks scored by Arjun. So, 65 × 50 = 3080 + 2 × Marks scored by Arjun. So, marks scored by Arjun =3250−30802=1702=85 marks.
