Answer: (a) m n

The average of m numbers = n2
Therefore, the sum of m numbers = m x n2

The average of n numbers = m2
Therefore, the sum of n numbers = n x m2

Total sum of m and n numbers = (m x n2 + n x m2)
= m n (n + m)

Then, the total average of m and n numbers = m n (n + m)/(n + m)
= m n

Hence, the correct answer is option (a) m n.
