Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{The weight of boxes is :}\\ \text{1st box = 200 kg}\\ \text{2nd box = 300 kg}\\ \text{3rd box = 250 kg}\\ \text{4th box = 350 kg}\\ \text{5th box = 500 kg}\end{array}$ Hence, difference between heavier 4 and lighter 4 is 300 Hence, difference in average is 75
