Capgemini Aptitude Sample Question 1: The average marks of three students A, B & C is 50. When another student D joins the group, the new average becomes 45. If another student E who has scored 6 marks more than D joins the group, the average of the four students B, C, D & E becomes 50 marks. How many marks did A score in the exam?

a) 46

b) 16

c) 36

d) 30

Answer: (b)


Since the average marks of A, B & C is 50

=> A+B+C = 50×3=150 ————————— (I)

New average marks including D is 45

=> A+B+C+D= 45×4= 180 ————————(II)

From the above equations, we get D=30

So, E =36

Since, the average of 4 students B, C, D & E is 50

=> B+C+D+E= 50×4= 200

Hence, we get,


From Equation (I), A=16
