 23.5
 24.5
 12.5
 14.5
Answer And Explanation

If Rahul age is x, then Sachin age is x7,

=> 9x63 = 7x
=> 2x = 63
=> x = 31.5
So Sachin age is 31.5  7 = 24.5

3. The ratio between the present ages of P and Q is 6:7. If Q is 4 years old than P, what will be the ratio of the ages of P and Q after 4 years

 5:8
Answer And Explanation

Explanation:
Let P age and Q age is 6x years and 7x years.

 12,28
 14,30
 16,32
 18,34
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
Let the age of younger person is x,
Then elder person age is (x+16)
=> 3(x6) = (x+166) [6 years before]
=> 3x18 = x+10
=> x = 14.
So other person age is x + 16 = 30

 34,11
 35,10
 36,9
 40,5
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
Let sons age = x years. Then fathers age = (45  x)years.
(x—5)(45—x—5) = 4(45 x  5) hence (x—5) = 4 so x = 9
Their ages are 36 years and 9 years. 
6. Ten years ago, P was half of Q in age. If the ratio of their present ages is 3:4, what will be the total of their present ages
 35
 34
 45
 25
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
Let the present age of P and Q be 3x and 4x respectively.
Ten years ago, P was half of Q in age
=> 2(3x – 10) = (4x – 10)
=> 6x – 20 = 4x – 10
=> 2x = 10
=> x = 5
