1. Ratio of present age of A and B is 7 : 9 and ratio of ages of A 5 years back and age of B 5 years later is 3:5. Find the present age of B.
A) 35 years
B) 45 years
C) 30 years
D) 50 years
E) 40 years
Option B
Solution
:
A/B=7/9
(A-5)/(B+5)=3/5
solve both and get A=35 and B=45
2. 5 years ago the ratio of ages of A and B are 5:7 and 10 years hence from now ratio will become 4:5. Find the average of present age of A and B.
A) 30 years
B) 40 years
C) 35 years
D) 45 years
E) None of these
Option C
Solution
:
—————————–A ———— B
5 years ago ————- 5 ———-  7
10 years hence ——–  4 ———–5
Difference =      ——– (-1)——– (-2)
to make these two difference equal multiply the second equation with (7-5)=2
So we get
—————————–A ———— B
5 years ago ————- 5  ———-  7
10 years hence ——–  8 ———–10
Difference =      ——– (+3)——– (+3)
3=15 years (5 ago + 10 hence)
1=5 years
=> 5 = 25 years (5 years ago of A)
=>7=35 years (5 years ago of B)
Hence A=25+5=30
B=35+5=40 years
Avg=70/2=35
3. The present age of a son is 40% of his father age. And the age of his mother is 220% of his age. The average age of three members is 38. Find the present age of mother.
A) 50 years
B) 22 years
C) 10 years
D) 44 years
E) None of these
Option D
Solution
:
Son= 40% of father.
F:S=5:2
Mother=220% of son=11/5
M:S=11:5
make F:M:S =25:22:10
avg=(25+22+10)/3=19
19=38
1=2
=>22=44
4. Rama got married 8 years ago. Her present age is 1 (1/3) times of her age at the time of marriage. She has a son who is one eighth of her present age. Then find the age of her son.
A) 4 years
B) 3 years
C) 2 years
D) 5 years
E) None of these
Option A
Solution
:
1 (1/3)=4/3
Ratio of present age of Rama and her age at time of marriage=4:3 ——– difference =1
1=8 years
4=32
age of son=32/8=4 years
5. A says to B “I am thrice as old as you are when I was as old as you were”. If age of B is 20 years find the age of A
A) 60 years

E) None of these
Option B
Solution
:
A                B
3x              y
y                x
3x-y = y-x (difference is same)
4x=2y
x/y=1/2
2=20
1=10
3x=30
6. The fathers age is four times as much as the sum of the age of his three children but 6 years hence his age will be thrice as the sum of their age. The present age of father is?

present age A= 3*4 + 4=16
B=5*4 +4=24
16/24=2:3
