    Answer: (2) 75

    Explanation:-

    The sum of the scores of A and B = 120 
    The sum of the scores of B and C = 130
    The sum of the scores C and A = 140

    Then, the sum of the scores of A, B and C = (120 + 130 + 140)/2
     = 390/2
     = 195 

    The scores of C = The scores of A, B and C – the scores of A and B 
     = 195 – 120
     = 75

    Then, the scores of C is 75. 

    Hence, the answer is (2) 75.
