Q 3 - One year ago the ratio of Yamini?s and Gamini?s ages was 6 : 7 respectively. Four years hence this ratio would become 7 : 8. How old is Gamini?

### Answer : D

### Explanation

Let one year ago the ages of Yamini and Gamini be 6x and 7x years respectively. Therefore, present ages will be 6x + 1 and 7x + 1 years respectively. Now four years hence, (6x + 1 + 4) / (7x + 1 + 4) = 7/8 Or, (6x + 5) / (7x + 5) = 7/8 Or, 49x + 35 = 48x + 40 Or, X = 40 - 35 = 5 Hence Gamini's present age = 7x + 1 = 7*5 + 1 = 36 years

Q 4 - A man five times older in the comparison of his son in the present time but before the period of 5 year the father age in the comparison of his son was 10 times older . Find out present age of the father?

### Answer : A

### Explanation

Let the present age of the son be x year. Then , present age of the man = 5x year ∴ (5x-5 = 10 (x-5) ⇒ 5x= 45 ⇒ x = 9 Age at the present time of the father is = (5*9) = 45 year

Q 5 - If 1:2 is the present age ratio of two girls. But 1:3 age ratio of girls was 5 year ago . In that case find out the ratio of age after the period of 5 year?

### Answer : C

### Explanation

If the present age of two girls is x and 2x years. Then, x-5/ 2x-5 = 1/3 ⇒ 3(x-5) =(2x-5) ⇒ x =10 5 year after their age ratio will be = x+5/ 2x+5 = 10+5/20+5 = 15/25 = 3/5= 3:5

Q 6 - If 6 year is the difference of age of two boys ram and shyam at the present time. After the period of 4 year, the ratio of their age would be 3:4 . find out the shyam age at the present time?

### Answer : C

### Explanation

Let x year is the ram present age then shyam present age will be (x+6) X+4/ (x+6+4) = 3/4 = x+4/ x+10 = 3/4 ⇒ 4(x+4) = 3(x+10) ⇒ x = 14. Hence , it proves that the present age of shyam = (14+6) = 20 year

Q 7 - If 4:1 is the ratio between mother and daughter and the sum of their age is 196. What should be the age ratio between mother and daughter after the period of 5 year?

### Answer : C

### Explanation

Let mother age be4 x year and her daughter age is x year. 4x*x = 196 ⇒ x^{2}= 49 ⇒ x = 7 Present age of mother is 7*4 = 28 year and son present age = 7 years. Required ratio = (28+5) : (7+5) = 33 : 12 = 11 : 4

Q 8 - If 45 year is the sum of mother and her son age. 5 year agoThe product of mother and son ages was 4 times in the comparison of mother present age. Find out the present age of mother and her son?

Q 9 - The sum of the ages of five girl born at the interval of 3 years each is 50 years. Find out the youngest girl age?

### Answer : A
