A 144.09
B 145.87
C 146.77
D 148.75
Answer & Explanation
Option: [A]

The total marks of 90 students = 90 x 144 = 12960

According to the question, the marks of one of the students was 148 whereas, his actual marks was 156

So, the total marks = 12960 - 148 + 156

= 12968

So the average = 12968/90

= 144.09
