Two years ago the ratio of ages of Naresh and Suresh was 3:2. If one year hence, the ratio of their ages will be 7:5, what is the sum of their present ages?

A.

30 years

B.

32 years

C.

34 years

D.

36 years

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

Let two years ago, the ages of Naresh and Suresh was 3X and 2X.

So one year hence, the ages of Naresh and Suresh would be 3X+3 and 2X+3 respectively.

As per question;

3x+3/2x+3=7/5

15X + 15= 14X + 21

X = 6

Present age of Naresh =3*6 + 2 = 20 years

Present age of Suresh = 2*6 + 2 = 14 years

∴Sum of their present ages = 20 + 14 = 34 years
