    Answer: (1) 66 kg

    Explanation:-
    The average weight of 15 oarsmen in a boat is increased by 1.6 kg.

    The crew, who weighs 42 kg is replaced by a new man.

    Then, the weight of new man = 42 + 1.6 x 15
    = 42 + 24
    = 66 kg
    Then, the weight of new man is 66 kg.

    Hence, the answer is (1) 66.
