Average age of 11 students and 1 teacher = 14 yrs.

Total age of (11 students and 1 teacher) = 14yrs.

Average age of 11 students and 1 teacher =(Average age of 11 students) + 3

Average age of 11 students = 14yrs.

Total age of 11 students = (11)= 121 yrs.

Age of the teacher = yrs.

So, both I and II together give the answer.
