Answer: (2) 9405
Explanation:
Let the 5 consecutive odd numbers A = X, B = X + 2 , C = X + 4, D = X + 6  & E = X + 8.
The average of 5 consecutive odd numbers = 95                 (Given in the question)
Then,  (X + X + 2 + X + 4 + X + 6 + X + 8) /5 = 95
5 X + 20 = 95 x 5
5 X = 475 – 20
5 X = 455
X = 455 /5
X = 91

Then, the value of C = X + 4 = 91 + 4
= 95

And the value of E = X + 8  = 91 + 8
= 99

Then, the product of C and E = 95 x 99
= 9405

Hence, the answer is (2) 9405.
