# Solve this....

The sum of 5 different positive integers is 90. What can be the 2nd largest number of the 5 at most?

These were the options qiven when I tried the question:

$$1)$$82

$$2)$$43

$$3)$$34

$$4)$$73

I got $$41$$ as the answer but didn't found them in options so was confused. Let me know what answer do you guys get.

Thanks.

Tried it, and got 41. So maybe it's a mistake and someone accidentally put 43 instead of 41?

I think it has considered zero to be a +ve integer as well. That way the answer would be 43.

But considering zero is neither +ve nor -ve, the correct answer should definitely be 41.

I got the same.

If we consider 0 then it comes to be 43 but in other case we have 42+41+4+2+1.
