Let A's age 10 years ago be x years

Then B's age 10 years ago be 2x yeats

Total of their present ages =

=

= 35 years

A) 91 years | B) 115 years |

C) 103 years | D) Can't be determined |

Explanation:

Let present Anirudh's age be 'A' and Bhavana's age be 'B'

Given seven years, their ratio is 7:9

=> A-7 : B-7 = 7 : 9

=> 9A - 7B = 14 .......(1)

And given,

Chandhu is 12 years older than A nad 12 years younger than B

=> C = A + 12....(2)

=> B = C + 12

=> B = A + 12 + 12 .....(From (2))

=> B = A + 24 ....(3)

Put (3) in (1)

9A - 7(A+24) = 14

9A - 7A - 168 = 14

2A = 182

=> A = 91 years

=> C = A + 12 = 91 +12 = 103 years.

A) 11 yrs | B) 9 yrs |

C) 7 yrs | D) 13 yrs |

Explanation:

Let the present ages of A and B be 'x' and 'y' respectively

From the given data,

[(x-2) + (y-2)]/2 = 26

=> x+y = 56

But given the age of A, 5 years hence is 40 yrs => present age of A = 40 - 5 = 35 yrs

=> x = 35 => y = 56 - 35 = 21

=> Age of B = 21 yrs

Given B is 5 years younger to C,

=> Age of C = 21 + 5 = 26 yrs

=> Required Difference between ages of A and C **= 35 - 26 = 9 yrs.**

A) 21 yrs | B) 27 yrs |

C) 29 yrs | D) 31 yrs |

Explanation:

Sum of ages of husband, wife and child= (24 × 3) + 9 = 81 years

Sum of ages of wife and child => 25 × 2 + 10 = 50 + 10 = 60 years

Age of husband = 81 - 60 = 21 years.

A) A is eldest & C is youngest | B) D is eldest & C is youngest |

C) C is eldest & A is youngest | D) A is eldest & B is youngest |

Explanation:

Given sum of present ages of A, B, C & D

A + B + C + D = 176

and also given that,

(A-4) : (B-4) : (C-4) : (D-4) = 11 : 9 : 6 : 14

Let the ratio = x

=> A-4 + B-4 + C-4 + D-4 = 11x + 9x + 6x + 14x

=> (A + B + C + D ) - 16 = 40x

=> 176 - 16 = 40x

=> x = 4

=> A = 44 + 4 = 48

=> B = 40

=> C = 28

=> D = 60

Therefore, from the above conclusions

**D is eldest with 60 years and C is youngest with 28 years of ages.**

A) 17 years | B) 13 years |

C) 14 years | D) 16 years |

Explanation:

Given R + S + M + D = 76

=> R+7 : S+7 : M+7 : D+7 = 7:6:5:8

=> Let the ratio = x

=> M+7 = 5x

=> M = 5x-7

=> R = 7x-7

=> S = 6x-7

=> D = 8x-7

=> R + S + M + D = 76

=> 7x-7 + 6x-7 + 5x-7 + 8x-7 = 76

=> 26x - 28 = 76

=> 26x = 104

=> x = 4

=> Mahesh's present age = 5x-7 = 20 - 7 = **13 years**.
