Correct Answer - Option 3 : 61

Given:

Average of six subjects = 75

​Average of seven subjects = 73

Formula used:

Average = Sum of values/number of values

Calculation:

The average marks of a student in six subjects = 75

The sum of marks of a student in six subjects = 75 × 6

⇒ 450

The average marks in seven subjects, including Maths = 73

The sum of marks of a student in seven subjects = 73 × 7

⇒ 511

Marks scored in Maths = The sum of marks included maths - the sum of marks with out Maths

Marks scored in Maths = 511 - 450

⇒ 61

∴ Marks scored in Maths is 61.
