Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 87

Given:

Average marks of a student in 7 subjects = 75

Average marks in 6 subjects excluding Science = 73

Formula used:

Average = Sum of values/number of values

Calculation:

The average marks of a student in seven subjects = 75

The sum of marks of a student in seven subjects = 75 × 7

525

The average marks in six subjects, excluding Science = 73

The sum of marks of a student in seven subjects = 73 × 6

438

Science scored in Science = The sum of marks in seven subjects - the sum of marks without Science

Marks scored in Science = 525 - 438

87

Marks scored in Science is 87.
