A little doubt

1. A thermometer is calibrated wrongly. At the melting point, it reads -10 degree celsius. At 50 degree celsius, it reads 60 degree celsius. What does the thermometer read at the boiling point?



2. I think this is logic-based.



3. I drew a table but got confused.

Assume that the relationship between temperature and the reading on the thermometer is linear.
