    Answer: (3) 75

    Explanation:-
    Let the number of students in the class be 100 and the average marks of remaining students be X
    According to the question,
    Then,  95 x 10 + 90 x 20 + 70 x X = 100 x 80
    950 + 1800 + 70 X = 8000
    70 X = 8000 – 2750
    70 X = 5250
    X = 5250/70
    X = 75%
    Then, the average marks of the remaining students of the class is 75.

    Hence, the answer is (3) 75.
