Hi,

It is a simple question testing the concept of Average.

Average = Total / Number of elements

So, average of three numbers 63,37 and x is

(100+x)/3

Average of multiples of 3 between 1 and 111(inclusive) is,

Multiples of 3 are,

3 ,6, 9, …111

We can find the average of multiples of 3 in using different ways,

One such way is,

Average = (3+111)/2

Rule: If a list of numbers were evenly spaced (common difference) then Average of the entire list is equal to the average of first element and last element of the set.

So average = 57

Given,

(100+x)/3 > 57

100 + x > 171

x > 71

So the answers are 75 and 85.

So the answer is D.

Hope this helps.
