In a class of 60 students, how many boys scored over 90% in the Chemistry test?

- Exactly 5 girls scored over 90% in the test.

**Ans: c**

From statement II, it is clear that out of 60 students, 40 students scored over 90% in the test . Now it is given in statement I that 5 girls scored over 90%.

Hence, number of boys who scored more than 90% = 40 − 5 = 35.
