Now if Rani’s = 40, Neena will be 50 years old, but her age is below 40, so Rani’s birthday on 28 Jan.

@Shubhra_AspirantsZone:disqus mam please explain how Neena’s age is below 40..

i am unable to complete my solution

yes that is to be written in puzzle

Neena’s age is less than 40 years.

@mod

doubt in qsn 1

how to find >> sahil age, Seema age & rahul age….?

conditions left for this>> 1 sahil age – seema age= 18yr,,,,,, seema age > sahil age

2 sahil age +seema age +neena age(26) = 72yr

3 age 36 after preeti

I have been left with

Sahil+Seema+neena=72; Seema-Sahil=18; Neena+Kavya= Dheeraj-6

Neena<40; Neena and 40 in Same Month; Neena + Rani = 90; anyone is 64;

SOl:——

Neena+Kavya= Dheeraj-6 {Kavya =8 found already…………. | Neena + Rani = 90;

Neena = Dheeraj – 14 {Dheeraj – 6 – Kavya/8 } ………………………..| both even

Now, Left box with Ages are 23 or 40, Persons left are Parul and Dheeraj;

Let set Dheeraj in both box;

Dheeraj – 14 = Neena

40-14 = 26 {even}

23-14 = 9 {odd}

So, Dheeraj = 40, Parul = 23 and Neena = 26 here,

=============================================================================

Sahil+Seema+neena=72; Seema-Sahil=18; Neena = 26

seema + sahil = 46; seema – sahil = 18; solve, seema =32, sahil =14;
