8,20,28
16,28,36
20,35,45
None of these

```Answer

Answer: Option  B Explanation:Let their present ages be 4x, 7x and 9x years respectively

3.  The ratio of the ages of a man and his wife is 4:3 after 4 years this ratio will be 9:7. If at the time of marriage the ratio was 5:3 then how many years ago were they married?

8 years
10 years
12 years
15 years

```Answer

Answer: Option  C Explanation:Let the present ages of the man and his wife be 4x and 3x years respectively.
Then, 4x+4/3x+4 = 9/7 <=> 7(4x+4)=9(3x+4) <=> x = 8
So their present ages are 32 years and 24 years respectively.
Suppose they were married Z years ago
Then 32-z/24-z = 5/3 <=> 3(32-z) = 5(24-z) <=> 2z = 24 <=> z = 12 ```

4.  A is 2 years older than B who is twice as old as C if the total of the ages of A,B and C be 27 then how old is B?

7
8
9
10

```Answer

Answer: Option  D Explanation:Let c's age be X years.
Then B's age = 2x years. A's age = (2X+2) years
Therefore (2X+2) + 2x+x = 27 <=> 5x=25 <=> x=5
Hence B's age = 2x = 10 years. ```
