 A) 8 years B) 9 years C) 10 years D) 11 years

Answer:   C) 10 years

Explanation:

Let the age of the daughter today be ‘x’ years.
Mother’s age today = 3x years
After 10 years, we have
3x + 10 = 2(x + 10)
x = 10 years.

Q:

The age of X is 2/3 rd that of Y. After 6 years X will be 46 years old. the present age of Y is?

 A) 40 B) 56 C) 60 D) 100

Explanation:

X= 2/3Y

=> Y= 3/2X

Aage of X after 6 years = 46 years

So present age of X = 46-6 = 40 years

Now, present age of Y = 3/2 * 40 = 60 years.

 A) 15 B) 16 C) 18 D) 20

Explanation:

Let the present ages of Kapil and Avanthi be K & A

Given difference in their ages = K - A = 9 years ...........(1)

After 7 years, K + 7 =  2(A + 7) ......(2)

K + 7 = 2A + 14

K - 2A = 7 ............(3)

K - A = 9 ....(1)

From (1) & (3),

-A = -2

=> A = 2 years

=> K = 9 + 2 = 11 years

Required, age of Kapil after 4 years = 11 + 4 = 15 years.

Q:

Karthik is now 32 years old and his son is 7 years old. In how many years will Karthik be twice as old as the son?

 A) 18 B) 25 C) 7 D) 15

Explanation:

Given Karthik’s age = 32 years

Karthik’s son age = 7 years

Difference between their ages = K - S = 32 - 7 = 25 years ….(1)

Now, required K = 2S ……(2)

Put (2) in (1)

2S - S = 25

=> S = 25 years

Hence, at the age of 25 years of Karthik’s son, Karthik will be twice as his son’s age.

25 - 7 = 18 years

Therefore, after 18 years the father be twice as old as the son.

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?

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

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.
