Q:

A person's present age is two-fifth of the age of his mother. After 8 years, he will be one-half of the age of his mother. How old is the mother at present ?

A) 36 yrs B) 38 yrs
C) 40 yrs D) 42 yrs

Answer:   C) 40 yrs



Explanation:

Let the mother's present age be x years.

Then, the person's present age = 2/5 x years.

(2x/5 + 8) = 1/2 (x + 8)

2(2x + 40) = 5(x + 8) => x = 40.

Q:

5 years ago, the mother's age was 3 times of her son's age. 5 years hence, the ratio between the ages of mother and the son becomes 11:5. Find the mother's present age?

Answer

Let the present age's of mother be 'M' and that of her son be 'S'.


According to the given data in the question,


M - 5 = 3(S - 5)


F - 3S = -10  ...............(1)


Then given ,


M + 5 : S + 5 = 11 : 5 


=> 5M - 11S = 30 ..............(2)


 


From (1) & (2), we get


S = 20


Then by substituting S = 20 in (1) or (2), we get


M = 50.


 


Hence, the present age of mother is M = 50 years.

Q:

The age of Sohail, Afzal and Bilal are 17,16 and 12 respectively. If the age of Aslam also included the average of the ages is increased by 5. What is the age of Aslam?

A) 32 B) 33
C) 34 D) 35
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 35

Explanation:

Given S = 17 yrs

A = 16 yrs

B = 12 yrs

Average = 17 + 16 + 12/3 = 15 yrs

Given if Aslam added to them, their average increases by 5

=> Average of 4 members = 20

Let the age of Aslam be 'x'

Then, 

17 + 16 + 12 + x /4 = 20

=> x = 80 - 45

=> x = 35. 

 

Hence, the age of Aslam is 35 yrs.

Q:

The ratio of K’s and M’s ages is 4: 5. If the difference between the present age of M and the age of K, 5 years hence is 3 years, then what is the difference and total of present ages of K and M?

A) 8, 72 yrs B) 16, 65 yrs
C) 12, 84 yrs D) 10, 60 yrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 8, 72 yrs

Explanation:

Let the present ages be K,M

Given K/M = 4/5

5K - 4M = 0 ......(1)

Also given that,

M - (K + 5) = 3

M - K = 8 .........(2)


Then, by solving (1) & (2)

M = 40 yrs and K = 32 yrs

Hence, Total of ages = 40 + 32 = 72 yrs

Difference of ages = 40 - 32 = 8 yrs.

Then ATQ, 

x + 15 = 5 (x - 5)

x + 15 = 5x - 25

=> x = 10

 

Hence, Rajeev's present age = x = 10 years.

Q:

Sum of present ages of P and Q is 41. Age of P 2 year hence is equal to age of R, 1 year ago. Age of P, 4 year hence is equal to age of Q 1 year ago and ratio of present age of P and S is 3 : 4. Find the difference of age of R and S. 

A) 2 B) 3
C) 4 D) 5
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 3

Explanation:

According to the given data,

P + Q = 41 ......(1)

R - 1 = P + 2

R = P + 3

and

P + 4 = Q - 1

=> Q = P + 5 ....(2)

From (1)&(2)

P = 18

Q = 18 + 5 = 23

R = 18 + 3 = 21

=> P/S = 3/4

=> S = 4/3 x 18 = 24

Required Difference = S - R = 24 - 21 = 3.

A) 6 yrs B) 4 yrs
C) 8 yrs D) 2 yrs
