Solution(By Apex Team)

Given that average marks obtained by 22 students = 45
And average of first 10 students = 55
Average of last 11 students = 40
So,
$\text { average }=\Large\frac{\text { sum }}{\text { number of elements }}$
Sum of marks of all 22 students
= 22 x 45
= 990
Sum of students of first 10 students
= 55 x 10
= 550
Sum of last 11 students
= 11 x 40
= 440
So marks obtained by 11th student
= 990 – (550 + 440)
= 990 – 990
= 0
