Answer & Explanation

Directions for questions 1 to 5: Following is the complete chart:


1.Choice (c)
2.Choice (a)
3.Choice (d)
Since Divya scored maximum marks, hence his score is more than 187, but note that she cannot score all the scores more than 187, there are only some scores which she can score.
Thus only a score of 191 is possible.
4.Choice (a) 
For being the average a multiple of 5 Divya must attempt 48 questions and also all of them must be correct. So total correct questions by four becomes = 16 + 46 + 47 + 48 = 157.
5.Choice (d)
In order to get maximum marks with lowest rank,Divya must score 59 with maximum attempts. Which could be realized by the equation 4x – y = 59. Which satisfies for x = 21 and y = 25. Hence the maximum question that he could attempt is 46.
