    Answer: (3) 121

    Explanation:-
    Let the total score be X.
    The highest score in an inning was 3/11 of the total.
    Then, X x 3/11
    = 3 X/ 11

    And next highest score was 3/11 of the remainder.
    Then, Remainder score = X – 3 X / 11
    = (11 X – 3 X)/11
    = 8 X / 11
    3 /11 of remainder,
    8 X x 3 / 11 x 11
    = 24 X / 121

    The score difference by 9,
    3 X / 11 – 24 X / 121 = 9
    = (11 x 3 X – 24 X) / 121 = 9
    = (33 X – 24 X)/121 = 9
    = 9 X / 121 = 9
    = X / 121 = 1
    X = 121

    Then, the total score is 121.
    Hence, the answer is (3) 121.
