A) 6 yrs B) 4 yrs
C) 8 yrs D) 2 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 4 yrs

After four years their ratio = 6 : 7

=> 5p + 46p + 4 = 67

=> 35p + 28 = 36p + 24

=> p = 4

Therefore, the difference between their ages = 24 - 20 = 4 years.

Q:

Hari Ram’s present age is three times his son’s present age and two fifth of his father’s present age. The average of the present age of all of them is 46 years. What is the difference between Hari Ram’s son’s present age and Hari Ram’s father’s present age? 

A) 44 yrs B) 56 yrs
C) 67 yrs D) 78 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 78 yrs

Explanation:

Let Hari Ram's present age = x

Then, his son's age = x/3

Father's age = 5x/2

x + x3 + 52x3 = 46=> x = 36 yrs

Now the required difference = 52x36 - 363 = 78 yrs

Q:

Sweety is 54 years old and her mother is 80. How many years ago was Sweety's mother three times her age?

A) 20 B) 41
C) 26 D) 33
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 41

Explanation:

Given P = 54 and M = 80

According to the question,

Let ‘A’ years ago, M = 3P

=> M - A/P - A = 3

=> 80 - A = 3(54 - A)

=> 80 - A = 162 - 3A

=> 2A = 82

=> A = 41

Therefore, A = 41 years ago Sweety’s mother was 3 times of Sweety’s age.

Hence, at the age S = 13 and M = 39.

Q:

7 years ago, the ratio of the ages of Anirudh to that of Bhavana, was 7:9. Chandhu is 12 years older than Anirudh and 12 years younger than Bhavana. What is Chandhu's present age?

A) 91 years B) 115 years
C) 103 years D) Can't be determined
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 103 years

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.

Q:

The average age of A and B, 2 years ago was 26. If the age of A, 5 years hence is 40 yrs, and B is 5 years younger to C, then find the difference between the age of A and C?

A) 11 yrs B) 9 yrs
C) 7 yrs D) 13 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 9 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.

Q:

Four person A, B, C and D. The sum of their present age is 176. Four years ago ratio of their age was 11: 9 : 6 : 14, then find who is eldest and youngest among them ?

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
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) D is eldest & C 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.
