**The present age of a boy is obtained by 2 times his age after 2 years, subtracted by 2 times his age before 2 years. Find his present age**

A)12

B)8

C)9

D)10

E)None of theseAnswer –**B)8**

**Solution:**

Present age of a boy = x

X = 2(x+2) â€“ 2(x-2)

= 2x+4-2x+4

X =8**AtÂ present Vivek age is twice Dinaâ€™s age and half of Â Kananâ€™s age. After 4 years Vivek will be 1.5 times Dinaâ€™s age and Kanan will be 2.5 times Dinaâ€™s age, then find the Kananâ€™s age.**

A)16years

B)14years

C)18years

D)22years

E)None of theseAnswer –**A)16years**

**Solution:**

Dinaâ€™s present age = x

Vivekâ€™s present age = 2x

Kananâ€™s present age = 4x

After 4 years

Vivekâ€™s age = 1.5*Dinaâ€™s age

2x+4 = 1.5(x+4)

0.5x = 2

X=4

4x=16years**At present Saran is four times Maheshâ€™s age. After 8 years Saran will be 3 times Maheshâ€™s age. How many times will Saranâ€™s age be in another 8 years times with respect to Maheshâ€™s age ?**

A)2

B)2.5

C)3

D)4.5

E)None of theseAnswer –**B)2.5**

**Solution:**

4x+8 = 3(x+8)

4x+8 = 3x+24

X = 16

After 8 more years

M = 16+16 = 32

S = 4*16 + 16 Â = 64+16 = 80

80/32 = 2.5 times**At present Kavitha is thrice Sitaâ€™s age. Eight years hence the respective ratio between Kavitha and Sitaâ€™s age will be 22:11, What is Kavithaâ€™s present age ?**

A)16yrs

B)8yrs

C)18yrs

D)24yrs

E)None of theseAnswer –**D)24yrs**

**Solution:**

3x+8/x+8 = 22/11

33x+88 = 22x+176

11x = 88

X=8

Kavithaâ€™s age = 3*8 = 24**The ratio between the present age of X and Y is 4:5. After 3 years Xâ€™s age will be 31 years. What was Yâ€™s age 4 years ago ?**

A)29

B)31

C)27

D)35

E)None of theseAnswer –**B)31**

**Solution:**

X:Y = 4x:5x

4x = 31-3 = 28

X = 7

Yâ€™s age 4 years ago = 5(7) â€“ 4 = 31**Anoopâ€™s current age is (2/5) of the age of his father. After 8 years, he will be (1/2) of the age of his father. What is the age of Anoop at now?**

A)16

B)23

C)27

D)19

E)None of theseAnswer –**A)16**

**Solution:**

Fatherâ€™s current age is x years.

Anoopâ€™s current age = (2/5)x years

[ (2/5)x + 8 ]= (1/2)(x + 8)

2(2x + 40) = 5(x + 8)

4x+80 = 5x+40

X = 40

Anoop = 2(40)/5 = 16yrs**If two times of the daughterâ€™s age in years is included to the motherâ€™s age, the total is 60 and if two times of the motherâ€™s age is included to the daughterâ€™s age, the total is 82. So the Motherâ€™s age is**

A)34

B)63

C)49

D)38

E)None of theseAnswer –**A)34**

**Solution:**

2A+B = 60……..(1)

A+2B = 82……..(2)

(2)*2

2A+4B = 164…….(3)

3B = 104

B = 34.6 = 34**Arun is 20 years elder than his daughter. In 4 years, personâ€™s age will be 2 times the age of his daughter. Then the current age of the daughter is**

A)20

B)18

C)16

D)25

E)None of theseAnswer –**C)16**

**Solution:**

(x + 20) + 4 = 2 (x + 2)+4

x + 24 = 2x + 8

x = 16**Â Antony will be half as old as Marry in 3 years. Antony will also be one-third as old as Jeni in 5 years. if Jeni is 12 years older than Marry, how old is Antony ?**

A)5

B)8

C)7

D)9

E)None of theseAnswer –**A)5**

**Solution:**

A+3 = 1/2(M+3)

2A + 3 = M —-(1)

A + 5 = 1/3 (J+5)

3A + 10 = J

J = M + 12

3A – 2 = M —(2)

Solve 1 & 2

A = 5**The ages of two persons differ by 14 years. 5 years ago, the elder one was 3 times as old as the younger one. What are their present ages of the elder person?**

A)36

B)24

C)32

D)26

E)None of theseAnswer –**D)26**

**Solution:**

Present age of the elder person = x

Present age of the younger person = x â€“ 14

(x â€“ 5) = 3 (x-14-5)

x â€“ 5 = 3x â€“ 57

2x = 52

x = 52/2 = 26
