    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
