    Answer: (3) 14 years

    Solution:-
    The average of 33 students and class teacher in a class = 15 years
    Therefore, the total age of all students and teacher in a class = 34 x 15
    = 510 years

    The teacher’s age = 48 years
    Then total age of all students = 510 – 48
    = 462 years

    The average age of all students = 462/33
    = 14 years

    Then the average of only the students is 14 years.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 14 years.
