A is two years older than B who is twice as old as C. If the total of the ages of A, B and C be 27, the how old is B?

A.

11

B.

8

C.

10

D.

11

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option CExplanation

Let C’s age be x years. Then, B’s age = 2x years. A’s age = (2x + 2) years.

∴ (2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27

⇒ 5x = 25

⇒ x = 5.

Hence, B’s age = 2x = 10 years.

A father said to his son, “I was as old as you are at the present at the time of your birth”. If the father’s age is 38 years now, the son’s age five years back was

A.

14 years

B.

38 years

C.

19 years

D.

33 years

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option AExplanation

Let the son’s present age be x years. Then, (38 – x) = x

⇒ 2x = 38.

⇒ x = 19.

∴ Son’s age 5 years back (19 – 5) = 14 years.

A.

8 years

B.

4 years

C.

10 years

D.

none of these

Answer with explanation

Answer: Option BExplanation

Solution:

Let the ages of children be *x*, (*x* + 3), (*x* + 6), (*x* + 9) and (*x* + 12) years.

Then, *x* + (*x* + 3) + (*x* + 6) + (*x* + 9) + (*x* + 12) = 50

⇒ 5*x* = 20

⇒ *x* = 4.

∴ Age of the youngest child = *x* = 4 years.
