    Answer: (2) 21
    Explanation:-
    Let the total number of workers in a workshop = N
    The average of all workers = 8000                     (Given in the question)
    The total salary of all workers = 8000 N.
    The average of salary of 7 technicians = Rs.12,000
    The total salary of 7 technicians = 12,000 x 7 = Rs.84,000
    The average of remaining workers = 6,000
    The total salary of remaining workers = 6,000 x (N – 7)
    Then,
    8000 N = 84,000 + 6,000 x (N – 7)
    8,000 N = 84,000 – 42,000  + 6000 N
    8,000 N – 6,000 N = 42,000
    2000 N = 42,000
    N = 42,000/2000
    N = 21
    There are 21 workers in the workshop.
