among it there will be 90 O 16 atoms

so total weight of those atoms is 90*16 = 1440 units

rest 10 atoms are of O 18

so weight of these atoms is 10*18 = 180 units

total weight of all 100 atoms = 1440+180 = 1620 units

if weight of 100 atoms is 1620 units

weight of 1 atom should be 1620/100

= 16.2 units

Ans. b) 16.2

hope i could help
