The sum of ages of 5 children born at the intervals of 3 years each is 50 years. What is the age of the youngest child? [A]. 4 years @ [B]. 8 years [C]. 10 years [D]. None of these Answer: Option A Explanation: Let the ages of children be x, (x + 3), (x + 6), (x + 9) and (x + 12) years. Then, x + (x + 3) + (x + 6) + (x + 9) + (x + 12) = 50 5x = 20 x = 4.

Explanation : Let the ages of Kunal and Sagar 6 years ago be 6x and 5x years respectively. Then, {(6x + 6) + 4}/ {(5x + 6) + 4} = 11/10 10(6x + 10) = 11(5x + 10) 5x = 10 x = 2 So Sagar's present age = (5x + 6) = 16 years.

Answer: Option D Explanation: Let C's age be x years. Then, B's age = 2x years. A's age = (2x + 2) years. (2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27 5x = 25 x = 5. Hence, B's age = 2x = 10 years.
