55 - x = 4x - 20

5x = 75 => x = 15

A) Any two statements are sufficient to give answer | B) Only C is sufficient |

C) All of three statements are necessary to give answer | D) Even using all the three statements answer cannot be found |

Explanation:

From the given statements A, B & C

Let the present age of Teja = P

Raju present age = P + 4

Sita's present age = 2(P + 4)

Average of ages of Sita & Teja = 19

=> (2P + 8 + P)/2 = 19

= 3P + 8 = 38

=> P = 30/3 = 10

Hence, the present age of Teja = P = 10 yrs.

Therefore, by using all the three statements A, B & C we can find the age of Teja.
