Given that- When M is divided by 16, the remainder is 10
Hence M= 16b+10
Now, when we increasing each number by 100 percent or doubling each number, their average mean will also be doubled.
New average mean, 2M= 32b+20= [16(2b+1)]+4
when we divide [16(2b+1)]+4, we will get remainder 4.

E. 14

let terms=7,9,11,13
mean=10
10/16 gives remainder of 10
if each term is doubled, mean will double also
20/16 gives a remainder of 4

B.
M= (a+b+c+d)/4

Also, M= 16*k +10; k is constant

Now all numbers are doubles (100% increase = twice the original)
AM for new terms: (2a+2b+2c+2d)/4 = 2(a+b+c+d)/4 = 2M

Now 2M = 2*16*k + 2*10 = 2*16*k + 20 = 2*16*k + (16 +4)
= 2*16*(k+1) + 4

4 is the remainder
