General Knowledge Questions & Answers PDF

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Let us assume the present age of Farheen = x years

So present age of Ramesh will be = x + 16 years

Ramesh’s age after 8 years will be = x+16+8 = x+24 years

Farheen’s age 8 years ago = x – 8 years

$\Rightarrow$ x+24 = 2*(x-8)

$\Rightarrow$ x= 40 years

So the present age of Farheen will be 40 years.

**2) Answer (B)**

Let the age of A and B initially be ‘a’ and ‘b’ respectively.

When C = 2, a/b = 3

=> a = 3b

When C = 10, 8 years have passed.

=> (a+8)/(b+8) = 2

a+8 = 2b + 16

a = 2b+8

=> b = 8 years and a = 24 years.

When C is as old as the difference between the ages of A and B, i.e, when C is 24-8 = 16 years old, age of B will be 8+14 = 22 years. Therefore, option B is the right answer.

**3) Answer (D)**

We have,

$\frac{P – 3}{Q + 5} = \frac{6}{13}$

So, 13P – 39 = 6Q + 30

13P – 6Q = 69

$\frac{P}{Q} = \frac{11}{20}$

20P – 11Q = 0

Solving both the equations we have,

P = 33 years and Q = 60 years

So, $\frac{P + 2}{Q – 5} = \frac{35}{55} = \frac{7}{11}$

Hence, option D is the right answer.

**4) Answer (A)**

Let the age of P and Q be p and q respectively.

We have, p+q = 53

$(p-4)(q-4) = 2 * (q-4)^2$

p-4 = 2q – 8

p = 2q – 4

Substituing the value of p in first equation,

3q – 4 = 53

q = 19

p = 53 – 19 = 34

Hence, option A is right choice.

**5) Answer (C)**

Let the present age of Sanjay’s mother be ‘x’. So Sanjay’s present age will be .4x

We have been given that

(.4x + 8)*2 = x + 8

=> .8x + 16 = x + 8

=> .2x = 8

=> x = 40

Hence, the present age of the mother is 40 years. Thus, required sum = 56.

**6) Answer (B)**

Let the age of Kamal now be k.

Age of Visu = k+10.

We know that, (k+10 -10)/(k-10) = 9/7

7k = 9k – 90

2k = 90

k = 45 years

Therefore, option B is the right answer.

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the age of A be $a$ and B be $b$.

We know that $\frac{a-7}{b-7} = \frac{2}{1}$

$a-7 = 2b – 14$

$2b-a = 7$ ———–(1)

We also know that after 5 years, the ratio of ages of A and B will be $6:5$.

$\frac{a+5}{b+5} = \frac{6}{5}$

$5a + 25 = 6b+30$

$5a-6b=5$ ———-(2)

(1) can be written as $-5a+10b=35$

(2) can be written as $5a-6b=5$

=> $4b = 40$

$b = 10$years.

Therefore, option C is the right answer.

**8) Answer (C)**

We know that the average age at the time of marriage was 27 years. Hence, the sum of their ages will be 27*2 = 54 years.

After ‘x’ years, the sum of their ages will be 54 + 2x.

After another ‘x’ years, the sum of the ages of the entire family will be 54 + 2x + 4x = 54 + 6x.

Now when the second set of twins are 5 years old, the sum of the ages of all the members of the family will be 54 + 6x + 30 = 84 + 6x

We have been given that this is equal to 18*6. Hence, we have

84 + 6x = 18*6

=> 6x = 24

=> x = 4

**9) Answer (B)**

Total age of the family before 5 years = 25*8 = 200 years.

Total age of the family just before the person passed away = 200 + 2*8 = 216 years.

Total age of the family after the person passed away = 216 – 66 = 150 years

Total age of the family just after the marriage = 150+26 = 176 years.

Total age of the family now = 176+3*8 = 200 years.

Average age of the family now = 200/8 = 25 years.

Therefore, option B is the right answer.

**10) Answer (C)**

Let the present age of Shanti and her father be ‘s’ and ‘f’ respectively.

So we have, s+6 = $\frac{4}{9}$*(f+6)

9s + 30 = 4f

Also, $\frac{s-10}{f-10} = \frac{4}{19}$

19s = 150 + 4f

Solving both the equations we get,

s = 18 years

So, f = (18*9+30)/4 = 48 years

Hence, option C is the correct choice.

**11) Answer (B)**

Let the ages of A and B be ‘a’ and ‘b’. Let us assume ‘a’ to be the eldest person.

After 1 year, the age of C will be a-b.

After 1 year, the average age of the family will be 16 years.

=>(a+1+b+1+a-b)/3 = 16

2a+2 = 48

2a = 46

a = 23 years.

Therefore, the age of the eldest person is 23 years. Hence, option B is the right answer.

**12) Answer (C)**

Four years ago the sum of the age of the family = 18*5 = 90

Let the age of the baby be ‘x’ years

The current sum of the ages of members of the family = 90 + 4*5 + x = 110 + x

The current average age of the family = 18.5

So, $\frac{110+x}{6}$ = 18.5

110 + x = 111

x = 1

Hence, C is the right choice.

**13) Answer (A)**

let age of sharma = x

let age of harris = y

xy = 240

2x = y+4

on solving these two equations

y = 20 or -24

age must be positive, so y = 20

x = 12

answer is option A

**14) Answer (D)**

Let ages of P,Q and R be $p,q,r$ respectively

According to ques, => $(p+r)+2q=59$ ————(i)

and $(q+r)+3p=68$ ————-(ii)

and $p+3q+3r=108$ ————(iii)

Multiplying equation (ii) by 3, => $3q+3r+9p = 204$ ———-(iv)

Subtracting equation (iii) from (iv), we get :

=> $(9p-p)=(204-108)$

=> $8p=96$

=> $p=\frac{96}{8}=12$ years

=> Ans – (D)

**15) Answer (A)**

Let Vijay’s age = $x$ years

=> Jayesh’s age = $2x$ years and Suresh’s age = $4x$ years

Sum of Suresh’s and Vijay’s ages = $(4x+x)=85$

=> $x=\frac{85}{5}=17$

$\therefore$ Jayesh’s age = $2x=2 \times 17=34$ years

=> Ans – (A)

**16) Answer (A)**

Let B’s present age = $x$ years

and A’s present age = $y$ years

Acc. to ques, => $\frac{\frac{1}{2} (y – 4)}{4 (x – 4)} = \frac{5}{12}$

=> $6 (y – 4) = 20 (x – 4)$

=> $6y – 24 = 20x – 80$

=> $10x – 3y = 28$ ————(i)

Also, $(x + 8) – \frac{1}{2} (y + 8) = 2$

=> $2x + 16 – y – 8 = 4$

=> $2x – y = -4$ ————-(ii)

Applying the operation, (i) – 3*(ii), we get :

=> $(10x – 6x) + (-3y + 3y) = 28 + 12$

=> $x = \frac{40}{4} = 10$ years

**17) Answer (A)**

Let present ages of P,Q and R be $p,q,r$ years respectively.

=> $q = r + 5$ ————(i)

and $p + q = r + 25$ ————(ii)

Subtracting eqn(i) from (ii), we get :

=> $p = 25 – 5 = 20$

$\therefore$ Present age of P = 20 years

**18) Answer (C)**

Let Samir’s father’s age = $x$ years

=> Samir’s age = $\frac{x}{4}$ years

=> Reema’s age = $\frac{3}{2} \times \frac{x}{4}$

= $\frac{3x}{8}$ years

$\therefore$ Ratio of Samir , Reema and their father’s age

= $\frac{x}{4} : \frac{3x}{8} : x$

= 2 : 3 : 8

**19) Answer (A)**

Let present ages of Trisha and Shalini be $7x$ and $6x$ years respectively.

Acc. to ques, ratio of their ages after 8 years

=> $\frac{7x + 8}{6x + 8} = \frac{9}{8}$

=> $56x + 64 = 54x + 72$

=> $56x – 54x = 72 – 64$

=> $2x = 8$

=> $x = \frac{8}{2} = 4$

$\therefore$ Difference in their ages = $7x – 6x = x$

= 4 years

**20) Answer (A)**

Let present ages of Shirish and Kunder be $5x$ and $6x$ years respectively.

Acc. to ques, ratio of their ages after 8 years

=> $\frac{5x + 8}{6x + 8} = \frac{7}{8}$

=> $40x + 64 = 42x + 56$

=> $42x – 40x = 64 – 56$

=> $2x = 8$

=> $x = \frac{8}{2} = 4$

$\therefore$ Difference in their ages = $6x – 5x = x$

= 4 years
