**Common Information**

Given below are the runs scored by eleven cricket players named $P1, P2, P3, P4$, ... $P11$ in their respective careers which lasted for 7 years.

Q. |
How many more runs scored by the player $P3$ would have made the ratio of the runs scored by the players $P3$ and $P7$ as $6:5$? |

✖ A. |
4024 |

✖ B. |
1862 |

✖ C. |
2478 |

✔ D. |
3308 |

**Solution:**

Option(**D**) is correct

Let, the player $P3$ score ‘$x$’ runs more.

According to the condition given, we have:

$\dfrac{5350 + x}{7215}= \dfrac{6}{5}$

$⇒ x= 3308$

Hence **option (D)** is the correct choice.
