Total age of 11 players = (28 x 11) years = 308 years. I. C = Y + 11 C - Y = 11 .... (i) II. Total age of 10 players (excluding captain) = (27.3 x 10) years = 273 years. Age of captain = (308 - 273) years = 35 years. Thus, C = 35. .... (ii) From (i) and (ii), we get Y = 24
III. Total age of 9 players = [ (25 x 3) + (28 x 3) + (30 x 3)] years = 249 years. C + Y = (308 - 249) = 59 .... (iii) From (i) and (iii), we get C = 35.
Thus, II alone gives the answer. Also, I and III together give the answer. Correct answer is (C).

III. Total age of 9 players = [ (25 x 3) + (28 x 3) + (30 x 3)] years = 249 years. C + Y = (308 - 249) = 59 .... (iii) From (i) and (iii), we get C = 35.

Thus, II alone gives the answer. Also, I and III together give the answer. Correct answer is (C).
