Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{Correct sum}\\
\text{= 36 × 100 + 90 – 40}\\
\text{= 3650}\\
\text{Correct average}\\
=\left(\Large\frac{3650}{100}\right)\\
\text{= 36.5}\\
\text{Error = (36.5 – 36) = 0.5}\\
\text{∴ Error %}\\
\begin{aligned}&=\left(\frac{0.5}{36.5}\times100\right)\%\\
&=\frac{100}{73}\%\\
&=1.36\%\end{aligned}\end{array}$
