Answer: (3) 4.90

Solution:-
Let price at each place be Rs. X
then total price = 10 X = 48.5
The price at 3 places = (X + 0.2)
Total price at 3 places = (3 X + 0.6)
The price at 1 places = (X – 0.2)
The price at remaining 6 places =Xx
Total price at 6 places = 6 X
New average = [3 X + 0.6 + X – 0.2 + 6 X]/10
= [10 X + 0.4]/10
= [48.5 + 0.4]/10
= Rs 4.89

Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 4.90
