QUESTION: 2

### The average age of a man and his two twin sons is 30 years. The ratio of the ages of father and one of his sons is 5:2. What is the father’s age

Solution: Let father's age be M and age of twins be 2x
(M + 2x)/3 = 30
M + 2x = 90------------(1)
M/x = 5/2
2M = 5x---------------(2)
Multiply (1) with 2
We get, 2M + 4x = 180--------------(3)
Putting (2) in (3)
5x+4x = 180 => 9x = 180x = 20. [his children are twins so 2x = 40]Since M + 2x = 90M = 90 -40 = 50years
QUESTION: 3

### Two years ago the ratio of ages of A and B was 5:7. Two years hence the ratio of their ages will be 7:9. What is the present age of B.

Solution: Let x,y be present ages of A,B.
x-2/y-2=5/7 implies 7x-5y=4 -(1)
x+2/y+2=7/9 implies 9x-7y=-4. (2)

(1) * 7 - (2) * 5 gives x=12

substitute and get y which would be 16
QUESTION: 4

The ratio between the present ages of Ravi and Vinay is 7:15 respectively. Two years from now Vinay’s age will be twice that of Ravi’s age. What was the difference between their ages 5 years ago.

Solution:

The correct option is B.
Let the present age of Ravi be 7x and that of Vinay be 15x.
After 2 yrs , Ravi age = 7x+2
Vinay age = 15x+2.
Acc. to ques,
15x+2 = 2 (7x+2)
15x+2 = 14x+4
x = 2.
Five yrs ago,
Ravi age = 7x-5 => 7*2 - 5 = 9 yrs
Vinay age = 15x - 5 = 15*2 - 5 = 25 yrs.
Difference = 25 - 9 = 16 years

QUESTION: 5

The ratio between the present ages of Radha and Seema is 5:7. After 8 years Radha’s age will be 28 years. What was Seema’s age 5 years ago.

Solution:

The correct option is E.
Let the present age of Radha be 5x So 8 yrs back , i.e, at present she is 20.
this means 5x = 20 => x = 4
Then Seema 's age = 7x = 7*4 = 28yrs.
Five yrs ago , her age was 28 - 5 = 23yrs.

QUESTION: 7

In a family the average age of the father and mother is 38 years, whereas the average age of father, mother and only daughter is 28 years. The age of daughters is

Solution:

The correct option is C.
Let father's age be x, mother's age be y and daughter's age be z.

(x+y)/2 = 38
x+y = 76

(x+y+z)/3 = 28
(76+z)/3 = 28
76+z = 84
z = 8 years

QUESTION: 8

QUESTION: 9

At present Tarun is twice the age of Vishal and half of Tanvi’s age. After four years Tarun will be 1.5 times Vishal’s age and Tanvi will be 2.5 times Vishal’s age. What is Tanvi’s present age?

Solution:
Vishal's present age = x years
Tarun's present age = 2x years
Tanvi's present age = 4x years
After 4 years.
Tarun's age = 1.5 * Vishal's age
=> 2x + 4 = 1.5(x+4)
=> 2x - 1.5x = 2
=>0.5x = 2 => x = 2/0.5 = 4
Tanvi's present age = 16 years.
QUESTION: 10

On Teacher’s Day, 4800 sweets were to be equally distributed among a certain number of children. But on that particular day 100 children were absent. Hence, each child got four sweets extra. How many children were originally supposed to be there?

Solution:
Let the original number of children be x.

âˆ´ 4800/x-100 - 4800/x = 4

=> 4800((x-x+100)/(x(x-100))) = 4

=> x(x-100) = 1200 * 100

=> x(x-100) = 400(400-100)

=> x = 400
QUESTION: 11

The ratio between the present ages of P and Q is 6:7. If Q is four years older than P, what will be the ratio of the ages of P and Q after 4 years?

Solution: P:Q = 6:7 i.e P/Q = 6/7 => 7P = 6Q--------1
Given that Q = P + 4 (put in 1)
7P = 6(P + 4)
So, P = 4 and Q = P+4 i.e 8years
After 4 years, P+4 i.e 4+4= 8yrs
And Q = 8 +4 = 12years
The ratio we get is 2:3
None of the above mentioned options are correct so option 'E' is correct

QUESTION: 13

The age of father 10 years ago was thrice the age of his son. Ten years hence, father’s age will be twice that of his son. The ratio of their present ages is

Solution:

The correct option ia B.
Let the ages of father and son 10 years ago be 3x and x years respectively.
Then, (3x + 10) + 10 = 2[(x + 10) + 10]
⇒ 3x + 20 = 2x + 40
⇒ x = 20
∴ Required ratio
= (3x + 10) : (x + 10)
= 70 : 30
= 7 : 3

QUESTION: 14

The total age of A and B is 12 years  more than the total age of B and C. C is how many years younger than A?

Solution:

The correct option is A.
Given that A+B = 12 + B + C
⇒ A – C = 12 + B – B = 12
⇒ C is younger than A by 12 years

QUESTION: 15

The difference between the ages of two persons is 10 years. Fifteen years ago, the elder one was twice as old as the younger one. The present age of elder person is?

Solution: Let the elder person be 'A' and younger be 'B'. A - B = 10. A = 10 +B. 15 years ago,A -15 = 2(B-15) 10 + B - 15 = 2(B - 15). B -5 = 2B - 30. B = 25 A = B + 10 Therefore, A = 35
