135/6=22.5
164/6=27.33

Only C fits in between these two limits.

Same answer and same approach as AmoyV

The problem is actually testing the concept of average and Maxima/Minima....

Let all the values be 135 , so the average will be 135/6 => 22.5 ( Minima )

Let all the values be 164, so the average will be 164/6 => 27.3 ( Minima )

Hence answer will be (C) { any number between the maximum and minimum value.... }
