# Aptitude Questions : Ages Set 4

Hello Aspirants. Welcome to Online Maths in AffairsCloud.com. Here we are creating question sample in Ages, which is common for competitive exams. We have included Some questions that are repeatedly asked in exams !!

1. 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 these
Solution:
Present age of a boy = x
X = 2(x+2) â€“ 2(x-2)
= 2x+4-2x+4
X =8

2. 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 these
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

3. 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 these
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

4. 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 these
Solution:
3x+8/x+8 = 22/11
33x+88 = 22x+176
11x = 88
X=8
Kavithaâ€™s age = 3*8 = 24

5. 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 these
Solution:
X:Y = 4x:5x
4x = 31-3 = 28
X = 7
Yâ€™s age 4 years ago = 5(7) â€“ 4 = 31

6. 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 these
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

7. 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 these
Solution:
2A+B = 60……..(1)
A+2B = 82……..(2)
(2)*2
2A+4B = 164…….(3)
3B = 104
B = 34.6 = 34

8. 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 these
Solution:
(x + 20) + 4 = 2 (x + 2)+4
x + 24 = 2x + 8
x = 16

9. 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 these
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

10. 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?
