    Answer: (4) 50 years

    Explanation:-
    The average age of 22 teachers = 27 years
    Then, the sum of the age of 22 teachers = 27 x 22
    = 594 years

    If the age of principal is also added,
    Then, the average age is increased by 1 year.
    Therefore, the average gage of 23 candidates = 27 + 1 = 28 years
    The sum of their ages = 23 x 28 = 644 years

    Then, the age of the principal = 644 – 594 = 50 years.

    Hence, the answer is (4) 50 years.
