Correct Answer - Option 4 : 46

**Given:**

18, 22, 34, 37, 42, k + 2, k + 8, 58, 63, 68, 73, 78, 85.

Total terms (n) = 13 (odd number)

**Calculation:**

Median = [(n + 1)/2]th term (When n is odd)

⇒ 54 = [(13 + 1)/2]th term

⇒ 54 = (14/2)th term

⇒ 54 = 7th term

⇒ 54 = k + 8

⇒ k = 54 – 8 = 46

**∴ Value of k is 46**
