Q. |
In how many of the given years was the production of fertilizers more than the average production of the given years? |

✖ A. |
1 |

✖ B. |
2 |

✖ C. |
3 |

✔ D. |
4 |

**Solution:**

Option(**D**) is correct

Average production (in 10000 tonnes) over the given years:

$=\dfrac{1}{8} × (25 + 40 + 60 + 45 + 65 + 50 + 75 + 80)$

$= 55$

The productions during the years 1997, 1999, 2001 and 2002 are more than the average production. So there are total of **4** such years.
