Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 63

Given:

The average marks of 42 students in an examination = 64

Formula Used:

Average of a given Terms/Series/Values = (Sum of the given Terms/Series/Values) / (Number of Terms/Series/Values)

Calculation:

Total Marks  = 42× 64 = 2688

⇒ Later it was found that the marks of three students were misread as 72, 58, and 44 instead of the actual marks

64, 42, and 26 respectively

 the Actual Average is = {2688−(72+58+44)+(64+42+26)}/42 = 63
