Answer: Option E Explanation: I. Retirement age is 60 years. II. There are 50 employees in the department. Average age of 50 employees = 30 years. Total age of 50 employees = (50 x 30) years = 1500 years. Number of employees next year = 40. Total age of 40 employees next year (1500 + 40 – 60 x 10) = 940. Average age next year Thus, I and II together give the answer. So, correct answer is (E).
