Hi,

From the given question, the two important figures given are the average temperature of 8 months, i.e., 36 degrees, and the maximum and minimum temperatures in a span of 4 months.

Between January and August, the sum of all temperatures across 8 months comes out to be 288 degrees. This is the maximum we can manipulate the given numbers.

Between September and December, there is no manipulation that can be done. We cannot find the average of the months by adding the maximum and minimum values and dividing by 2, since the temperatures may not necessarily be in an Arithmetic Progression. Therefore, we have no idea of the overall temperature across these 4 months.

Clearly, only 1 of the 2 minimum requirements to solve this question are met, and therefore the answer is (D).

Please do correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks.
