G represent Girls average \(= 5G\)
Statement 1: The average score of the boys is \(23\) points while the average score of the girls is \(20\) points
\(\Rightarrow 23(4)+\dfrac{20(5)}{9} = \dfrac{192}{9} \Rightarrow 21.3333.\) Sufficient \(\Large{\color{green}\checkmark}\)
Statement 2: If one of the girls had scored \(6\) points more, the average score of the group would have been \(22\)
Let \(X\) be the total of marks of Boys and Girls.
Such that \(X+\dfrac{6}{9}=22\)
\(X+6 = 198\)
\(X = 192\)
Average \(= \dfrac{\text{Total}}{\text{no. Of students}}\)
\(\dfrac{192}{9} = 21.3333\) Sufficient \(\Large{\color{green}\checkmark}\)
Therefore, D
