    Answer is (2): 86.1

    Explanation:-
    The ratio of boys and girls of a class = 4: 5
    The average marks obtained by the girls of a class = 85
    Then, the total marks obtained by all girls = 85 x 4 = 340

    The average marks obtained by the boys of a class = 87
    Then, the total marks obtained by the all boys of a class = 87 x 5
     = 435

    The total marks obtained by all boys and girls = 340 + 435
     = 775
    Then, the average marks of whole class = 775/9
     = 86.1

    Hence, the answer is (2) 86.1
