When you have your answer in percentages/fractions and there are no values in the data given to you, assume values. Here you do not have the value of any number. So assume 20 numbers are all 1. Their average is 1 and sum is 20. Then n is 4 and sum of 21 numbers is 24. 4/24 = 1/6 _________________

For this solution, I thought all numbers have to be different?

It usually doesn't matter if the numbers don't need to be integers. The numbers could be 0.999999999999999, 0.99999998, 1.00000000000000001, 1.000000000002 etc. Effectively, they are all 1 and our solution doesn't change at all. _________________

Umm 1/6 does seem the answer...udaymathapati could u please confirm the answer and change the choices? well 201 or 61 are not really the proper fractions the question expects.

Given: 21 numbers in a list including n. n = 4 times the average of other 20 numbers. Assume the average to be x n = 4x - (i)
Average = Sum/20 Sum of other 20 numbers = 20x - (ii)
n/Sum of other 21 numbers = \(\frac{4x}{(4x + 20x)} = \frac{4x}{24x} = 1/6\) Option B _________________
