**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

A takes 9 hrs to type 36 pages

=> A’s efficiency = $\frac{36}{9}=4$ pages/hr

Similarly, B’s efficiency =Â $\frac{40}{5}=8$ pages/hr

A typed first 60 pages alone, => Time taken to print 60 pages = $\frac{60}{4}=15$ hours

Similarly, time taken to print last 60 pages by A and B together = $\frac{60}{(4+8)}=5$ hours

$\therefore$ Total time taken to complete the book = $15+5=20$ hours

=> Ans – (B)

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

LetÂ the ages of A, B and CÂ respectively be $5x,8x$ and $9x$ years.

According to ques, => $5x+9x=56$

=> $x=\frac{56}{14}=4$

$\therefore$ B’s age = $8\times4=32$ years

=> Ans – (D)

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Present ages of the persons are 36 and 50 years respectively.

According to ques,

=> $\frac{36+n}{50+n}=\frac{3}{4}$

=> $144+4n=150+3n$

=> $4n-3n=150-144$

=> $n=6$

=> Ans – (D)

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let present age of husband, wife and child beÂ $h,w,c$ years respectively.

Average age of husband, wife and their child 3 years agoÂ = 27 years

=> Total present ages ofÂ husband, wife and their child = $(27+3)\times3$

=> $h+w+c=90$ ———(i)

Similarly, present ageÂ of wife and the childÂ = $(20+5)\times2$

=> $w+c=50$

Subtracting equation (ii) from (i), we getÂ :

=> $h=90-50=40$

$\therefore$Â The present age of the husbandÂ =Â **40 years**

=> Ans – (B)

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let present age of A = $5x$ years and B = $6x$ years

According to ques,

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

=> $35x+49=36x+42$

=> $36x-35x=49-42$

=> $x=7$

$\therefore$ Present age of A = $5\times7=35$ years

=> Ans – (A)

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

let surya’s age=s

ravi’s age=r

Given s-r=12

r=0.4(r+s)

0.6r=0.4s

0.6(s-12)=0.4s

0.6s-7.2=0.4s

0.2s=7.2

s=36 yers

9 years from now age will be 36+9=45 years

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Assuming, present age of Rahul= x yearsÂ and his sister= y years.

So, Present ratio= $x\div y= 3\div4$ Â Â …..(i)

Before 10 years the ratio of their ages

=$(x-10)\div (y-10)= 13\div19$ Â Â Â Â Â ……(ii)

Solving equation (i) & (ii),

We get, x=36 years and y=48 years.

Therefore, **Option A** is correct.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Ratio of parents present age is 11:10 And the ratio of ages of the father and mother will be 19:18 when the son will be twice his present age

Let the present age of son be x

Then the twice age will be 2x

According to question:

$\frac{11 + 2x}{10 + 2x} = \frac{19}{18}$

$18(11 + 2x) = 19(10 + 2x)$

$198 + 36x = 190 + 38x$

$8 = 2x$

$x = 4$

Ratio of present ages will be:

$\frac{11 + x}{10 + x} = \frac{11 + 4}{10 + 4}$

Required ratio is: (15/14).

A is correct choice.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let say, Simi and Seema’s present age is 5k and 4k.

So, (5k+9)/(4k+9)=8/7 .

or, 35k+63=32k+72 .

or, 3k=9.

or, k=3 .

Simi’s present age=5Ã—3=15.

B is correct choice.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Five years ago, the ratio of the ages of a father and his son was 5 : 3.

As we know that whenÂ time progresses the ratio between the ages alwaysÂ decreases.

$RatioÂ ofÂ age_{5Â Â yearsÂ ago} > RatioÂ ofÂ Â Present age > RatioÂ ofÂ Â age_{5Â Â yearsÂ Â later}$

Option D violates this.Â $[\frac{7}{3} > \frac{5}{3}]$

Option D is correct.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the present ages of Mahesh and Ajay be 3x years and 2x years respectively.

Then, Their ages after 8 years will be 3x+8 years and 2x+8 years.

Given, $\dfrac{3x+8}{2x+8} = \dfrac{11}{8}$

$24x+64 = 22x+88$

=> $2x = 24$

=> $x = 12$

Then, Present ages of Mahesh and Ajay are 36 years and 24 years respectively.

Present age of Mahesh’s son = Half of Present age of Ajay = 12 years.

**12)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Given 2 grandparents average as 65 so sum of their ages=65*2=130 years

Also given 3 parents average as 32 so sum of their ages=32*3=96 years

Also given 4 grandchildren average as 8 so sum of their ages=8*4=32 years

Total sum of ages=130+96+32=258 years

Average=258/9

=86/3 years

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the ages of Arun and Anand be 3x and x

After 5 years Arun’s age=3x+5 and Anand’s age=x+5

Given 3x+5=2(x+5)+5

3x+5=2x+10+5

x=10

Present age of Arun=30 years

**14)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the present ages of Husband, Wife and Child be H, W and C years respectively.

Given, $\dfrac{H-4+W-4+C-4}{3} = 26 => H+W+C-12 = 78 => H+W+C = 90$

$\dfrac{W-3+C-3}{2} = 22 => W+C – 6 = 44 => W+C = 50$

Substituting W+C = 50 in above equation.

H+50 = 90 => H = 40

Therefore, The present age of the husband = 40 years.

**15)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let ages of A and B 4 years age be $5x$ and $7x$ years respectively.

=> Ratio of ages 4 years from now (i.e. 8 years from then) = $\frac{5x+8}{7x+8}=\frac{7}{9}$

=> $45x+72=49x+56$

=> $4x=16$

=> $x=4$

Ratio of ages 12 years from now = $\frac{5(4)+16}{7(4)+16}=\frac{36}{44}$

= $9:11$

=> Ans – (C)

**16)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let present ages of Meera and Sheela be $9x$ and $5x$ years respectively.

According to ques, => $9x=5x+8$

=> $9x-5x=4x=8$

=> $x=2$

$\therefore$ Present age of Sheela = $5\times2=10$ years

=> Ans – (B)

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let present age of A = $15x$ years and B = $8x$ years

According to ques,

=> $\frac{15x+8}{8x+8}=\frac{17}{10}$

=> $150x+80=136x+136$

=> $14x=136-80=56$

=> $x=\frac{56}{14}=4$

$\therefore$ Ratio of ages of A and B after 10 years from now = $\frac{15\times4+10}{8\times4+10}$

= $\frac{70}{42}=5:3$

=> Ans – (C)

**18)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let Savan ‘ age be s and Akshan be a.

A/c to question ,

s = 4a

10 years later ,

s + 10 = 2(a + 10)

Solving these two questions , a = 5

s = 20

So , the answer would be option b)20.

**19)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the age of Shipra be s and Malini be m.

s + m = 65 —-(1)

After 5 years ,

s + 5 = m + 5 + 15

s – m =15—–(2)

Solving (1) and (2) , we get ,

s = 40 and m = 25

So , the answer would be option a)25 years.

**20)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Four years ago ,

$\frac{A’ age}{B’ age}$ =Â $\frac{4}{5}$

Suppose A’ age = 4x and B’s age= 5x

Eight years later ,

$\frac{A’ age}{B’ age}$ =Â $\frac{11}{13}$

$\frac{4x + 12}{5x + 12}$ =Â $\frac{11}{13}$

52x + 156 = 55x + 132

x = 24 / 3 = 8

Present ages of A = 4x + 4 = 36 and B = 5x + 4 = 44

Sum of their present ages = 80

So , the answer would be option a)80.
