The ages of Anushka, Kajal and Charu latha together are 57 years. Bharti is thrice as old as Anushka and Charu latha is 12 years older than Anushka. Then, the respective age of Anushka, Kajal and Charu latha is ?

A) 27, 9, 21 B) 9, 21, 27
C) 21, 27, 9 D) 9, 27, 21
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 9, 27, 21

Explanation:

Let Anushka age = X
Charu latha 12 yrs older than Anushka so Charu latha age = x+12
Kajal is thrice as old as Anushka so Kajal age = 3x
The ages of Anushka, Kajal and Charu latha together are 57 years
i.e x + (x+12) + 3x = 57
=> 5x = 45
:- x = 9
Anushka age = 9
Kajal age = 3x = 27
Charu latha age = x+12 = 21

Q:

Sony is one-fifth the age of her mother 15 years ago and Sony’s brother is three-fifth the age of his mother 10 years ago. If the sum of Sony and her brother’s ages is 31 then how old is Sony's mother ? 

A) 40 B) 50
C) 60 D) 70
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 50

Explanation:

Sony and her brother's age sum is 31
Let Sony's mother's age be 'x'.
Now the conditions given for both of their ages related to their mom is
1/5(x-15) + 3/5(x-10) = 31
x-15 + 3x-30 = 155
4x-45 = 155
4x = 200
x = 50
So, Mother's age = 50.

Cross verification : 15 years ago age = 35 => Sony age = 7
10 years ago age = 40 => bro age = 24

Sum = 24 + 7 = 31.

Q:

When I was married 10 years ago my wife is the 6th member of the family. Today my father died and a baby born to me.The average age of my family during my marriage is same as today. What is the age of Father when he died ?

A) 50 yrs B) 60 yrs
C) 70 yrs D) 65 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 60 yrs

Explanation:

Let the Father be x years when he died

Average Age 10 years ago be A

Total Age 10 years ago = 6*A

Total Age after 10 years(Just before father's Death) = 6A + 6*10 = 6A + 60

Father Died and Baby was born => the Total number of people in the family is Same (6)
Baby born today so age of baby = 0

(6A +60 - x)/6 = 6A/6
=> A + 10 -(x/6) = A
=> x/6 = 10
=> x = 60

Therefore we can conclude that the father was 60 years old when he died.

When Raj Tarun was born, his father was 32 years older than his brother and his mother was 25 years older than his sister. If Raj Tarun's brother is 6 years older than Raj Tarun and his mother is 3 years younger than his father, how old was Raj Tarun's sister when Raj Tarun was born ?

A) 5 B) 10
C) 15 D) 8
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 10

Raj Tarun's age = 0 when he was born.
Then, given his brother is 6 years old.
Then his father is 6 + 32 = 38 when Raj Tarun was born
And his mother is 3 years yonger than his father => so his mother was 35 years old when Raj Tarun was born
and his sister is 25 year younger than his mother
so Raj Tarun's sister was 10 years old when Raj Tarun was born.

Q:

Avanthi’s age is 1/6th of her father’s age. Her father’s age will be twice of Kapil’s age after 10 years. If Kapil’s eighth birthday was celebrated two years ago, then what is Avanthi’s present age ?

A) 6 years B) 4 years
C) 7 years D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) None

Explanation:

As given Kapil's 8th birthday was celebrated 2 years ago,

Kapil’s present age = 8 + 2 = 10 years.

Father's age is twice of Kapil’s age after 10 years.
=> F + 10 = 2 (K + 10) = 2 (10+ 10)
F = 30years,

Avanthi's age =1/6(F) = 30/6 = 5 years.
