The average of five numbers is 27. If one number is excluded, the average become 25. The excluded number is

- 25
- 27
- 30
- 35

**Answer:** d) 35

**Explanation: **

Given, the average of five numbers = 27

Therefore sum of five numbers = 27 x 5 = 135

According to question, one number excluded then new average = 25

Remaining numbers = 4

The sum of remaining numbers = 25 x 4 = 100

The excluded number will be the difference between total of 5 numbers and 4 numbers.

So, excluded number = 135 – 100 = 35
