It is B...

There are 50 even intergers between 102-200 inclusive

The average of those intergers is (200+102)/2=151

50*151=7550

Yes it is interesting that you do not need that info... :)

All you can do from that info is to calculate an average of the first 50 intergers, which in this case equals 51....

102 + 104 + .....200
= 50 * 100 + [2 + 4 + ..100]
= 5000 + 2550
= 7550
