A) 25 years B) 26 years
C) 20 years D) can't be determined

Answer:   B) 26 years



Explanation:

Since we know that the difference b/w the age of any two persons remains always constant, while the ratio of their ages gets changed as the time changes.

 

so, if the age of his child be x (presently)

 

Then the age of  wife be x + 26 (presently)

 

Thus the total age = x + ( x + 26) = 32  [252-220 =32]

=> x = 3

Therefore, The age of her child is 3 years and her self  is 29 years. Hence her age at the time of the birth of her child was 26 years.

=> x = 8

Therefore, the number of boys in the class = 8.

Q:

Navaneet has thrice the money Poonam has and Poonam has 25% more money than Hebah. If the average money of the three is Rs. 350, What is the amount that Navaneet has ?

A) Rs. 175 B) Rs. 220.75
C) Rs. 218.55 D) Rs. 656.25
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs. 656.25

Explanation:

Assume Hebah has Rs. M

Since 25% more money at Poonam

=> Money at Poonam = M + (25% of M)

=> Money at Poonam = M + 0.25M = Rs. 1.25M

Money with Navaneet is thrice the money with Poonam,

=> Money at Navaneet = 3(1.25M) = Rs. 3.75M

Now, sum of all Money = (M + 1.25M + 3.75M) = Rs. 6M

But given the average of the money is Rs. 350

=> 6M/3 = 350

=> 2M = 350

=> M = 350/2 = Rs. 175

=> Amount of money Navaneet has = Rs. 3.75M = 3.75 x 175 = Rs. 656.25.
