Correct Answer - Option 4 : 28

**Given: **

Average of 5 consecutive even numbers = 24

**Calculation:**

Let the 5 consecutive even numbers be x, x + 2, x + 4, x + 6 and x + 8.

According to the question,

Average of the 5 consecutive numbers = (Sum of the 5 consecutive numbers)/5

⇒ 24 = {(x) + (x + 2) + (x + 4) + (x + 6) + (x + 8)}/5

⇒ 24 × 5 = 5x + 20

⇒ 5x = 120 – 20

⇒ x = 100/5

⇒ x = 20

So, The greatest number = x + 8

⇒ 20 + 8

⇒ 28

**∴**** The greatest number among the five numbers is 28.**
