B) 28
C) 32
D) 26

Answer

Option (C)

Solution

From CAT 2017 – Quantitative Aptitude – Arithmetic – Averages, we can see that,
Average of 22 people = a/22
Let sum of heights of two people who left = x
From the question,
(a-x)/20 = a/22 + 2
On solving, we get x=a/33
Putting value of x in a, we get the value of a as 660
x=20
Average height of remaining 20 toddlers = (a-x)/20 = 32
