## Answers

**Answer is: (C) 46**

**Explanation**:

Let the temperature of Monday be T

_{M}Sum of temperatures of Tuesday and Wednesday = T and

Temperature of Thursday = T_{Th}

Now, T_{M} + T = 41 Ã—3 = 123

and T_{Th} + T = 43 Ã— 3 = 129

âˆ´ T_{Th} â€“ T_{M} = 6, Also T_{Th} =
1.15T_{M}

âˆ´ 0.15T_{M} = 6 â‡’ T_{M} = 40

âˆ´ Temperature of Thursday = 40 + 6 = 46Â°C
