A. 16 B. 18 C. 24 D. Cannot be determined Answer: Option C

### Solution(By Apex Team)

\begin{aligned}&\text{Let the numbers be x, x + 2 and x + 4}\\ &\text{Then,}\\ &\Rightarrow(x+x+2+x+4)-\frac{(x+x+2+x+4)}{3}=44\\ &\Rightarrow(3 x+6)-\frac{(3 x+6)}{3}=44\\ &\Rightarrow 2(3 x+6)=132\\ &\Rightarrow 6 x=120\\ &\Rightarrow \mathrm{x}=20\\ &\therefore \text { Largest number }=x+4=24 \end{aligned}
