Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 6.25

Given:

Run rate for first 10 overs =  3.2

Formula Used:

Run rate = (Total runs )/ Number of overs

Calcualtion:

for the 1st 10 overs the score will be 10*3.2=32
⇒  the remaining score is 282-32=250
⇒ remaining overs = 40

⇒  the run rate  required = 250/40=6.25

Conclusion:
 Run rate should be 6.25
