Q 2 - The average age of 30 boys in a class is 15 years. One boy aged 20 years, left the class, but two new boys came in his place whose ages differ by 5 years. If the average age of all the boys now in the class still remains 15 years, the age of the younger newcomer is :

A - 20 years

B - 15 years

C - 10 years

D - 8 years

Answer : B

Explanation

Let the age of younger boy be x years.
Therefore age of older boy = (x+5) years
Then, total age of 30 boys = 30*15 = 450 years
Total age of 31 boys after two newcomers join = 450 - 20 +x + x +5
= 435 + 2x

From the question, 435 + 2x = 31 * 15
Or, 2x = 465 - 435
Or, x = 15 years

Q 3 - A father is 30 times older than his son. 18 years later, he will be only thrice as old as his son. Father?s present age in years is:

A - 25 years

B - 30 years

C - 40 years

D - 45 years

Answer : C

Explanation

Let the age of the son be x years. So, father's age = 30x years.

As per question, after 18 years,

30x + 18 = 3 (x + 18)
Or, 27x = 54 - 18
Or, x = 36/27 = 4/3

Therefore father's present age = 30*4/3 = 40 years

Q 4 - The total age of A and B is 12 years more than the total age of B and C. C is how many years younger than A?

A - C is elder to A

B - 24 years

C - 12 years

D - Data Inadequate

Answer : C

Explanation

According to question,

A + B = B + C + 12
A = C + 12
 C = A - 12

Hence, C is 12 years younger to A.

Q 5 - What should be the present age of a man if the given condition is such as 15 year hence , a men will be 4 times as old as he was before the period of 15 year?

A - 10 years

B - 15 years

C - 20 years

D - 45 years

Answer : D

Explanation

Let man present age be x years.
His age 15 year ago = (x-15) years.  His age 15year hence = (x+15) years.
(x+15) = 4(x-15) ⇒ 3x= 45 ⇒ x = 45

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?

A - 15 years

B - 18 years

C - 20 years

D - 25 years

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 - A mother have 7 times in the comparison of her daughter at the time of 1 year ago . At the present time mother age is equal to the square of her son . What should be the time age of mother?

A - 7 years

B - 36 years

C - 49 years

D - 64 years

Answer : B

Explanation

Let the present age of the son be x years.
Man present age  =7(x-1)+1 years =  (7x-6 ) yrs.
7x-6 = x2 ⇒ x2-7x+6 = 0 ⇒ (x-6)(x-1) =0 ⇒ x =6 or x =1
∴ present age of men = (7*6-6) = 36 yrs.

Q 8 - Before the period of 5 year, the age of vijay was 1/3 of the age in the comparison from vipin. The present age of vijay is 17 year , in that situation find out the present age of vipin?

A - 9 years

B - 36 years

C - 41 years

D - 51 years

Answer : C

Explanation

Let vijay age 5 years  ago be x years. Then, vipin age 5 years ago = 3x years.
x+5 = 17  ⇒ x = 12
present age of vipin = (3*12+5) = 41 yrs.

Q 9 - Before the period of 16 year, my grandfather was 8 times older in the comparison of me. He would be 3 times of my age 8 years now. Find out the ratio of my grandfather and my age before the period of 8 year.

A - 1:2

B - 1:5

C - 3:8

D - none of these

Answer : D

Explanation

Let my age 16 yrs ago be x years.
My grandfather age at that time = 8x years
My present  age = (x+16) yrs.
My grandfather present age = (8x+16) years.
3(x+16+8)= (8x+16+8) ⇒ 3x+72 = 8x+24  ⇒ 5x = 48 ⇒ x = 48/5
Ratio of our  ages  8 yrs ago =  (x+16-8) /(8x+16-8) = x+8/ 8x+8
 (48/5+8)/ (8* 48/5 +5) = 88/424 = 11 :53.

Present age of john = (2*6) = 12 years
