Let’s say son’s age is $x$
hence father’s present age will be $3x$
after 15 years son’s age will be $x+15$ and father’s age will be $3x+15$ and it is twice the age of son
soÂ $3x+15$ = 2Â ($x+15$)
solve for $x$

Let’s say maya’s age is $6x$ and chaya’s age is $5x$.
after 15 years ages will be $6x+15$ and $5x+15$.
New ratio will be $\frac{6x+15}{5x+15} = \frac{9}{8}$.
After solving above equation we will get $x$ equals to 5
So maya’s age will be 30.

Let’s say employees were change from 8x to 5x and wage per employee is changed from 7y to 9y
Hence total wage is changed from 56xy to 45xy or in a ratio of 56:45

Ronald takes 6 hours to type 32 pages

no.of pages typed by ronald per hour = 32/6 = 16/3

Elan takes 5 hours to type 40 pages

no.of pages typed by elan per hour = 40/5 = 8

in 1hr, both can type 8+16/3 pages = 40/3

time taken by both to type 110 pages = 110/(40/3) = 33/4 = 8hrs 15minsÂ  Â  ( $\because$ 1/4 hr = 15mins)

so the answer is option C.

Let Ratnabali’s present age = $8x$ years and Shaukat’s present age = $5x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{8x + 22}{5x + 22} = \frac{10}{9}$

=> $72x + 198 = 50x + 220$

=> $72x – 50x = 220 – 198$

=> $22x = 22$

=> $x = \frac{22}{22} = 1$

$\therefore$ Ratnabali’s age = $8 \times 1 = 8$ years

=> Ans – (D)

Let Ratna’s present age = $5x$ years and Shantanu’s present age = $4x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{5x + 19}{4x + 19} = \frac{10}{9}$

=> $45x + 171 = 40x + 190$

=> $45x – 40x = 190 – 171$

=> $5x = 19$

=> $x = \frac{19}{5}$

$\therefore$ Ratna’s age = $5 \times \frac{19}{5} = 19$ years

=> Ans – (A)

Let Ranjini’s present age = $5x$ years and Shahid’s present age = $4x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{5x + 13}{4x + 13} = \frac{6}{5}$

=> $25x + 65 = 24x + 78$

=> $25x – 24x = 78 – 65$

=> $x = 13$

$\therefore$ Ranjini’s age = $5 \times 13 = 65$ years

=> Ans – (B)

Let husband’s age = $x$ years

=> Wife’s age = $(100 – x)$ years

According to ques,

=> $\frac{x – 10}{100 – x – 10} = \frac{9}{7}$

=> $\frac{x – 10}{90 – x} = \frac{9}{7}$

=> $7x – 70 = 810 – 9x$

=> $9x + 7x = 810 + 70 = 880$

=> $x = \frac{880}{16} = 55$ years

=> Ans – (B)

Let Ramya’s present age = $8x$ years and Saurabh’s present age = $7x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{8x + 10}{7x + 10} = \frac{12}{11}$

=> $88x + 110 = 84x + 120$

=> $88x – 84x = 120 – 110 = 10$

=> $x = \frac{10}{4} = 2.5$

$\therefore$ Ramys’s age = $8 \times 2.5 = 20$ years

=> Ans – (A)

Let present age of husband = $x$ years

=> Present age of wife = $(60 – x)$ years

Ratio of their ages 4 years agoÂ = $\frac{x – 4}{(60 – x) – 4} = \frac{7}{6}$

= $\frac{x – 4}{56 – x} = \frac{7}{6}$

= $6x – 24 = 392 – 7x$

=> $6x + 7x = 392 + 24 = 416$

=> $x = \frac{416}{13} = 32$ years

Let present age of Rangitha = $6x$ years

=> Present age of Shaheen = $5x$ years

According to question, => $\frac{6x + 12}{5x + 12} = \frac{7}{6}$

=> $36x + 72 = 35x + 84$

=> $x = 84 – 72 = 12$

$\therefore$ Rangitha’s present age = $6 \times 12 = 72$ years

Let age of brother = $x$ years

=> Age of sister = $(x – 6)$ years

Product of their ages 7 years ago = $(x – 7) \times (x – 13) = 72$

=> $x^2 – 13x – 7x + 91 – 72 = 0$

=> $x^2 – 20x + 19 = 0$

=> $x^2 – x – 19x + 19 = 0$

=> $x(x – 1) – 19(x – 1) = 0$

=> $(x – 1) (x – 19) = 0$

=> $x = 1 , 19$

Since, $x \neq 1$, => Age of brother = 19 years

Let husband’s age = $x$ years

=> Wife’s age = $(56 – x)$ years

According to ques, $(x-10)(56-x-10)=320$

=> $(x-10)(46-x)=320$

=> $46x-x^2-460+10x=320$

=> $x^2-56x+780=0$

=> $x^2-30x-26x+780=0$

=> $x(x-30)-26(x-30)=0$

=> $(x-30)(x-26)=0$

=> $x=30,26$

$\therefore$ Ages of the husband and the wife = 30 and 26 years

Let Rambha’s present age = $8x$ years and Sarvesh’s present age = $5x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{8x + 7}{5x + 7} = \frac{5}{4}$

=> $32x + 28 = 25x + 35$

=> $32x – 25x = 35 – 28$

=> $7x = 7$

=> $x = \frac{7}{7} = 1$

$\therefore$ Rambha’s age = $8 \times 1 = 8$ years

=> Ans – (C)

Let father’s age = $7x$ years and son’s age = $2x$ years

According to ques, => $(7x-5)(2x-5)=150$

=> $14x^2-35x-10x+25-150=0$

=> $14x^2-45x-125=0$

=> $14x^2-70x+25x-125=0$

=> $14x(x-5)+25(x-5)=0$

=> $(x-5)(14x+25)=0$

=> $x=5,\frac{-25}{14}$

Since, age can’t be negative, thus $x=5$

$\therefore$ Father’s age = $7 \times 5=35$ years

=> Ans – (C)

Let the age of son = $x$ years and father’s age = $(33-x)$ years

Product of their ages 2 years ago = $(x-2)(33-x-2) = 28$

=> $(x-2)(31-x)=28$

=> $31x-x^2-62+2x=28$

=> $x^2-33x+90=0$

=> $x^2-3x-30x+90=0$

=> $x(x-3)-30(x-3)=0$

=> $(x-3)(x-30)=0$

=> $x=30,3$

$\therefore$ Ages of father and son are 30 and 3

=> Ans – (B)

Let the age of brother = $x$ years and sister’s age = $(21-x)$ years

Product of their ages 5 years ago = $(x-5)(21-x-5) = 28$

=> $(x-5)(16-x)=28$

=> $16x-x^2-80+5x=28$

=> $x^2-21x+108=0$

=> $x^2-9x-12x+108=0$

=> $x(x-9)-12(x-9)=0$

=> $(x-12)(x-9)=0$

=> $x=12,9$

$\therefore$ Ages of brother and sister are 12 and 9

=> Ans – (A)

Let Rangana’s present age = $7x$ years and Sayed’s present age = $5x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{7x + 11}{5x + 11} = \frac{4}{3}$

=> $21x + 33 = 20x + 44$

=> $21x – 20x = 44 – 33$

=> $x = 11$

$\therefore$ Rangana’s age = $7 \times 11 = 77$ years

=> Ans – (B)

Let Ramita’s present age = $9x$ years and Satyajit’s present age = $7x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{9x + 9}{7x + 9} = \frac{5}{4}$

=> $36x + 36 = 35x + 45$

=> $36x – 35x = 45 – 36$

=> $x = 9$

$\therefore$ Ramita’s age = $9 \times 9 = 81$ years

=> Ans – (A)

Let Rasika’s present age = $7x$ years and Shami’s present age = $5x$ years

According to ques, => $\frac{7x + 17}{5x + 17} = \frac{12}{11}$

=> $77x + 187 = 60x + 204$

=> $77x – 60x = 204 – 187$

=> $17x = 17$

=> $x = \frac{17}{17} = 1$

$\therefore$ Rasika’s age = $7 \times 1 = 7$ years

=> Ans – (D)
