Q:

The average of the ages of Sushanth, Krish and Rishi is 43 years and the average of the ages of Sushanth, Rishi and Rohit is 49 years. If Rohit is 54 years old, what is Krish's age ?

A) 34 years B) 26 years
C) 24 years D) 36 years
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 36 years

Explanation:

Let present ages of Sushanth = w, Krish = x, Rishi = y and Rohit = z , then
w + x + y = 43 x 3 = 129 ---(i) and
w + y + z = 49 x 3 = 147 ---(ii)
Subtracting (i) from (ii), (w+y+z) - (w+x+y) = 147 - 129 , z - x = 18 ---(iii)
Given Rohit's age=z=54, so from (iii), x = 54 - 18 = 36.
Therefore, Krish age is 36 years.

Q:

On a ruler's tombstone, it is said that one sixth of his life was spent in childhood and one twelfth as a teenager. One seventh of his life passed between the time he became an adult and the time he married; five years later, his son was born. Alas, the son died four years before he did.

Let the age of ruler is x so that of son = x/2 (given)
Now according to the given condition

Q:

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.
