Answer is (1): 10 years 4 months

Explanation:-
The average of 30 students of a class = 14 years and 4 moths
 Then, the total age of 30 students of a class = 30 x 14 and 30 x 4
 = 420 years 120 months
= 420 + 10
  = 430 years
After admission of 5 new students in the class average becomes 13 years 9 months,
13 years 9 months
  Then, the total of all students = 35 x 13 years 9 x 35
 = 455 years  315 months
 = 455 + 26 years and 3 months
 = 481 years and 3 months
Therefore,  the total age of five new students = 481 years 3 months- 430 years
 = 51 years 3 months
 The age of the youngest one of the five new students = 9 years 11 months
Then, the age of remaining four students = 51 years 3 month – 9 years 11 months
 = 41 years 8 months

So, the average of 4 new students = 41 years 4 months/4
10 years 4 months

Hence, the answer is (1) 10 years 4 months
