Q:

Eight years ago, Ajay's age was 4/3 times that of Vijay. Eight years hence, Ajay's age will be 6/5 times that of Vijay. What is the present age of Ajay ?

A) 41 yrs B) 40 yrs
C) 37 yrs D) 33 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 40 yrs

Explanation:

Let the present ages of Ajay and Vijay be 'A' and 'V' years respectively.

=> A - 8 = 4/3 (V - 8) and A + 8 = 6/5 (V + 8)

=> 3/4(A - 8) = V - 8 and 5/6(A + 8) = V + 8

V = 3/4 (A - 8) + 8 = 5/6 (A + 8) - 8

=> 3/4 A - 6 + 8 = 5/6 A + 20/3 - 8

=> 10 - 20/3 = 10/12 A - 9/12 A

=> 10/3 = A/12 => A = 40.

Q:

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

A) 6 years B) 8 years
C) 10 years D) 12 years
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 10 years

Explanation:

Ram age when he was born = 0 years
=> His brother's age = 6 year
=> His father's age = brother age + 32years = 6+32 = 38
=> His mother's age = father's age - 3 = 35
So sister's age = 35-25 = 10years.
