The sum of 4 integers is 4*50 = 200.
The sum of 2 integers is 2*45 = 90.

Thus, the sum of the other 2 integers is 200 - 90 = 110. Since we know that the integers are positive then the greatest one from these two can be 109, the other one being 1.

Answer: D.

Hope it's clear.

a + b + c + d = 200

a + b = 90

c + d = 110

Greatest possible = 109 (Just less than 1)

Answer = D

The sum of 2 integers is 2*45 = 90.

Thus, the sum of the other 2 integers is 200 - 90 = 110. Since we know that the integers are positive then the greatest one from these two can be 109, the other one being 1.

Answer: D.

Hope it's clear.


Sorry I do not understand why sum of two remaining integers = 110 becomes 109?

x + y = 110, where both x and y are positive integers. The max value of say x there is 109, when y = 1.
