Ans is option (C)

After the review, let the marks of Anjali, Mohan and Rama be $11x,10x,3x$ respectively.

In the review, they got marks increased by $6$. So, using the condition given in the question,

$3x-6=\frac{1}{12}(10x-6+11x-6)$ $\Rightarrow$ $15x=60$ $\Rightarrow$ $x=4$

$\therefore$ Marks of Anjali, Mohan and Rama after the review are: $44,40,12$ respectively.

So, marks of Anjali, Mohan and Rama before the review: $38,34,6$ respectively.

$\therefore$ Anjali’s marks $(38)$ exceeded Rama’s marks $(6)$ by $32$.
