A student has to secure 40% marks to pass. He gets 90 marks and fails by 10 marks. Then the maximum marks is

- 200
- 225
- 250

**Answer:(c) 250
Explanation:-**

A student has passing marks = 40%

Let the maximum marks = X

According to question, he gets 90 marks and fails by 10 marks

X = 250

Hence, the maximum marks = 250
