Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 42.56

Concept used:

Mean and frequency.

Calculation:

Mean of the given data

⇒ (35 + 38)/2 = 36.5 

⇒ (38 + 41)/2 = 39.5 

⇒ (41 + 44)/2 = 42.5 

⇒ (44 + 47)/2 = 45.5 

⇒ (47 + 50)/2 = 48.5  

Average weight of all class

 \(\Rightarrow \frac{{36.5 \times 3 + 39.5 \times 13 + 42.5 \times 13 + 45.5 \times 10 + 48.5 \times 5}}{{44}}\)

⇒ 1873/44

∴ 42.56 is the average of the class.
