Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 16th

Given,

Total number of students = 39

Ashok rank from the last = 17

Suresh is 7 ranks ahead of Ashok.

Suresh rank from last = 17 + 7 = 24

Let Suresh rank from the start be x

Total number of students = Rank from start + rank from last - 1

39 = x + 24 - 1

x = 39 - 24 + 1

= 16

So, Suresh's rank from start = 16

Hence, the correct answer is "16th".
