Answer is 54.5. First find correlation coefficient which will come out to be 0.49. Based on this, find regression equation of Y (Marks in Economics) on X (Marks in Statistics). which will be Y = 0.65X +22. Substitute X = 50 and then calculate Y. Try this, if any doubt remains, feel free to mention here.
