Average of 6 tests = 75

i.e. total of the 6 test scores = 6*75 = 450

After lowest grade's drop only 5 tests will be considered

i.e. total of best 5 scores out of 6 tests = 5*85 = 425

i.e. Lowest grade score = 450-425 = 25

6 tests tota; = 75* 6 = 450
after 1 test is dropped ; 85 * 5 = 425
so 450-425 = 25
IMO B
