Assuming the average of 10 quizzes as 100 and the average of 9 quizzes as 110(10% more than avg of 10 quizzes).
Total marks of 9 quizzes is 990(110*9) and total marks of 10 quizzes is 1000(100*10).
So answer is 990/1000 = 99% - D

Algebraically, let x be the sum of 9 quizzes and y be the sum of 10 quizzes.

Given x/9 - y/10 = (1/10) * (y/10)

On solving, we get x/y=99/100 - D

Cheers!

IMO E

sum of x1 to x9 / 9 = (1.1 * x1 to x10)/ 10

= sum of x1 to x9 = 1.1 * 9 * sum of x1 to x10 ) * 100 / 10

= 99 %
