- 6.5
- 4
- 3
- 3.5
- 4.2

**Answer – 3**

The average of 5 quantities is 6.

Therefore, the sum of the 5 quantities is 5 * 6 = 30.

The average of three of these 5 quantities is 8

Therefore, the sum of these three quantities = 3 * 8 = 24

The sum of the remaining two quantities = 30 – 24 = 6

Average of these two quantities =6 / 2 = 3
