Sunita’s marks in the first four examinations are 87, 92, 94 and 95.

Let x be marks obtained in the fifth examination.

To receive Grade ‘A’ in a course, one must obtain an average of 90 marks or more in five examinations.

\therefore \, \, \, \frac{87+92+94+95+x}{5}\geq 90

                     \Rightarrow \, \, \, \frac{368+x}{5}\geq 90

                    \Rightarrow \, \, \, 368+x\geq 450

                   \Rightarrow \, \, \, x\geq 450-368

                   \Rightarrow \, \, \, x\geq 82

Thus, Sunita must obtain 82 in the fifth examination to get grade ‘A’ in the course.
