Answer & Explanation
  1. (d); Kamal’s present age=10 years

Kamal’s age after 10 years=20 years

Father’s age after 10 years =40 years

Father’s age now=30 years

Ashok’s age now=[(1/6)X30]years=5 years

  1. (b); Let son’s age=x. Then, father’s age=(45-x)

(x-5) (45-x-5)=4(45-x-5)



Therefore, Father’s age now=36 years & son’s age=9 years.

  1. (c); Let Mona’s age 10 yrs ago=x. Her mother’s age then=4x.




Therefore, Mona’s present age=(10+10)years=20 years

  1. (a); (A+B)’s age 3 years ago=(18X2)=36 years

(A+B) now=(36+3X2)years=42 years.

(A+B+C) now=(3X22) years=66 years.

C’s present age=(66-42) years=24 years.

  1. (b); Let Kamla’s age 6 years ago be x.

therefore, (x+6)=(5/4)x



therefore, Kamla’s present age=30 years.

therefore, Kamla’s son’s present age=[(1/10)X30] years=3 years

  1. (c); Let their ages 1 years ago be 4x and 5x.




therefore, Veena’s present age=(5x+2)=12 years.

  1. b); B-A=A-C





  1. (c); Let their present ages be 3x and 4x. Then,




therefore, Sum of their present ages=7x=35 years.

  1. (a); Let their ages be 3x & 11x.



Their present ages are 9 years & 33 years. 

Ratio of their ages after 3 years = 12 : 36 =1 : 3

  1. (b); Let the son’s age be x. Then, father’s age=4x.

therefore, (4x-5)=9(x-5)



therefore, Present age of the man=32 years.
