**B**

316 marks.

314 marks.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the average of all 9 girls be x, then the required total is T = 9x. By averages, $x = {8 × 28 + (x + 56)}/9$ which is same as $x × 9 = {8 × 28 + (x + 56)}$, which is same as $T = {8 × 28 + (T/9 + 56)}$, solving for T we get 315 marks.

**A**

$29{1/2}$.

**B**

$30{14/31}$.

**C**

$28{20/33}$.

**D**

$31{7/15}$.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Total weight of 16 students is 16 × 31 = 496. Similarly, the total weight of remaining 16 students is 16 × 28 = 448. The total weight of all 32 students is 496 + 448 = 944. So the average = 944/32 = $29{1/2}$.
