Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 92

Given:

Average score of nine innings = 62 runs

Required average score of 10 innings = 65 runs

Calculation:

Total sore of nine innings (62 × 9) = 558 runs

Required total score of 10 innings = (65 × 10) = 650 runs

Number of runs to be scored in the 10th innings = (total score of 10 innings) - (total score of 9 innings) = 650 - 558 = 92 runs

∴ The number of runs to be scored in 10th inning is 92 runs.
