- 40
- 42
- 48
- 45

**Answer: (3) 48 **

**Explanation:-**

The average age of 8 persons in a committee is increased by 2 years.

Then, total age increased due to substitution = 8 x 2 = 16 years

The age of removed persons = 35 + 45

= 80 years

Then, average age of new two women = (80 + 16)/2

= 96/2

= 48 years

Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 48.
