We have five different 2 digit numbers whose average is 56 and median is 60Since the Median is 60 => the middle number is 60
Average of the number is 56 => Sum = 5*56 = 280
Now we have to find the greatest possible value of lowest number=> numbers greater than 60 should be smallest
=> x , y ,60,61,62 should be other numbers (where x and y are the two numbers smaller than 60, x being the smallest)
=> x + y + 60 + 61 + 62 = 280
=> x + y = 97
Now, for x to be maximum, y should be minimum
Minimum value of y will be x + 1 (as y cannot be less than x and x has to be greatest)
x + x + 1 = 97
=> x = 48, y = 49
So, answer will be B
Hope it helps!
