Best answer

AM of attendance of 49 students of class A = 40%

AM of attendance of 53 students of class B = 35%

 

AM of attendance of class A and B= $\frac{49*40+35*53}{( 49+53)}$= $\frac{3815}{ 102}$ = 37.4019%

 

Hence,Option(D)37.4% is the correct choice.

40% of 49 students are 49⨉40/100 =19.6=20

35% of 53 students are 53⨉35/100 =19

Among 102 students present 39 students

 "              1    "          "         39/102 "

"           100    "          "         39/102⨉100 =38
