    Answer :  (3) 48.2

    Explanation: –
    The average of 10 numbers = 50
    Then, the sum of 10 numbers = 50 x 10
    = 500

    If,  A student by mistake, wrote 64 in place of 46.
    Then, the correct  sum of 10 numbers  = 500 – (64 – 46)
    = 500 – 18
    = 482

    Then, the correct average of 10 numbers = 482 / 10
    = 48.2

    Hence, the correct average of 10 number is 48.2.
