A sum of Rs. 41 was divided among 50 boys and girls. Each boy gets 90 paise and a girl 65 paise. The number of boys is —

 16
 34
 14
 36
Correct Option: B
As per the given question , we can say that
Average money received by each = Rs.  41 
50 
Average money received by each = 82 paise
Ratio of boys and girls = 17 : 8
Total ratios of boys and girls = 17 + 8 = 25
∴ Number of boys =  50 ×  
25 
Therefore ,Number of boys = 34.
