Solution(By Apex Team)

Let the number of students who got the job of A, B and C categories is a, b and c respectively, Then the total salary, $\begin{array}{l} =\Large\frac{\{26(a+b)+44(b+c)+34(c+a)\}}{2(a+b+c)} \\ =\Large\frac{(60 a+70 b+78 c)}{2(a+b+c)} \\ =\Large\frac{[30(a+b+c)+(5 b+9 c)]}{(a+b+c)} \\ =30+\text { some positive value } \end{array}$ Thus, the minimum salary must be Rs. 30 lakh and the maximum salary can not exceed 44, which is the highest of the three
