Q:

"I am five times as old as you were, when I was as old as you are", said a man to his son. Find out their present ages, if the sum of their ages is 64 years ?

A) Father = 50; Son =14 B) Father = 40; Son =24
C) Father = 60; Son =4 D) Father = 48; Son =16
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Father = 40; Son =24

Explanation:

Let the present age of the man be 'P' and son be 'Q',
Given, P + Q = 64 or Q = (64 - P)
Now the man says "I am five times as old as you were, when I was as old as you are",
So, P = 5[B - (P - Q)]
We get 6P = 10Q,
Substitute value for Q,
6P = 10(64 - P),
Therefore P = 40, Q = 24.

Q:

A is 30% more efficient than B. How much time will they, working together, take to complete a job which A alone could have done in 23 days  ?

A) 9 days B) 11 days
C) 13 days D) 15 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 13 days

Explanation:

Ratio of times taken by A and B = 100 : 130 = 10 : 13.
Suppose B takes x days to do the work.

Then, 10 : 13 :: 23 : x     =>     x = ( 23 x 13/10 )     =>     x = 299 /10.

A's 1 day's work = 1/23 ;
B's 1 day's work = 10/299 .

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = ( 1/23 + 10/299 ) = 23/299 = 113 .

Therefore, A and B together can complete the work in 13 days.
