Best answer

**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.
