    Answer: (2) 95
    Explanation:-
    According to the question,
    Let  be a  number is X  and other number is X – 20.
    The average of three numbers = 135
    (195 + X + X – 20)/3 = 135
    175 + 2X = 3 x 135
    2X = 405 – 175
    X = 230/2
    X = 115
    Other number = X – 20 = 115 – 20 = 95
    Hence the smallest number is 95.
