### 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
