2. 16
3. 18
4. 19
5. Cannot be determined

S+T = 23*(39-37) = 46
S/T = 15/8
T = 16

2. The ages of Four members of a family are in the year 2010 are ‘X’,’X+12’,’X+24’ and ‘X+36’. After some years Oldest among them was dead then average reduced by 3. After how many years from his death, the average age will same as in 2010?

After death : 3x+36+3N/3 = x+18-3
N = 3 years
3x+36+3N/3 = (x+18)
N = 6 years
6-3 = 3 years from his death
