Answer:  (3) 70 

Explanation:-
The average of 13 results = 70
Then, the sum of 13 results = 70 x 13
 = 910

The average of first seven results = 65
Then, the sum of first seven results = 65 x 7
 = 455

The average of last seven results = 75 x 7 
 = 525

So, The seventh result = (455 + 525) – 910
 = 980 – 910
 = 70

Then, the seventh result is 70. 

Hence, the answer is (3) 70.
