Answer: Option C

Here is complete explanation of A set A consists of integers 27 28 30 and 33….

Solution(By ExamCraze Team)

Average of set A
= $$frac{27 + 28 + 30 + 33}{4}$$
= $$frac{118}{4}$$
= 29.5
After increase
= $$frac{29.5 × 130}{100}$$
= 38.35
Now
$$frac{{{text{Sum of first four numbers + k}}}}{5}$$       $$ = {text{New average}}$$
⇒ 118 + k = 38.35 × 5
⇒ 118 + k = 191.75
⇒ k = 191.75 - 118
⇒ k = 73.75
