#### Question from UPSC Prelims 2020 CSAT Paper

**Explanation : **

## Average score of batsman calculation

After his 50th innings, the batsman’s total score was (50 * 46.4) = 2320.

After his 60th innings, his average score increased to (46.4 + 2.6) = 49. So his total score after 60 innings was (60 * 49) = 2940.

The difference between these two totals is the total score he made in his last ten innings: (2940 – 2320) = 620.

So his average score in those last ten innings was (620 / 10) = **62**.
