## Aptitude Problems on Ages Test Paper 26) The sum of the ages of father and his son is 44 years. If 6 years after the father will be 3 times as old as his son, what are their present ages? - 36, 8
- 38, 6
- 35, 9
- 37, 7
The Correct answer is (A)
Let present age of son is X and present age of father is (44 -X). As per question, after 6 years; 3(X+6) = (44 - X) +6 3X +18 = 50 - X 4X = 50 - 18 4X = 32 X = 8 years ∴Present age of son = 8 years And, present of father = 44 - 8 = 36 years
7) Ten years ago, Ajay wasrd as old as Vijay. If Ajay is 18 years old now, how old is Vijay now? - 32 years
- 34 years
- 36 years
- 38 years
The Correct answer is (B)
Let Vijay is X years old now. As per question, 10 years ago; (X-10) = 18 ? 10 X -10 = 24 X = 24 +10 = 34 years 8) Age of father is seven times the age of his son. In the next 10 years, the age of father will be three times the age of his son. What is the age of father now? - 35 years
- 37 years
- 39 years
- 41 years
The Correct answer is (A)
Let the age of son is X and age of father 7X Age of son after 10 years = X+10 Age of father after 10 years = 7X + 10 As per question, after 10 years; 3(X+10) = 7X + 10 3X + 30 = 7X + 10 4X = 20 X = 5 years ∴Age of father now = 7 * 5 = 35 years 9) Twelve years ago, Budh was twice as old as Badri. If the ratio of their present ages is 4:3 respectively, find the difference between their present ages. - 5 years
- 6 years
- 7 years
- 8 years
The Correct answer is (B)
Let 12 years ago age of Badri was X years and age of Budh was 2X. So, present age of Badri = X + 12 And, present age of Budh = 2X + 12 As per question; 6X + 36 = 4X + 48 2X = 12 X = 6 Present age of Badri = 6 + 12 = 18 years Present age of Budh = 2*6 +12= 24 years Required difference between their ages = 24 - 18 = 6 years 10) Two years ago the ratio of ages of Naresh and Suresh was 3:2. If one year hence, the ratio of their ages will be 7:5, what is the sum of their present ages? - 30 years

The Correct answer is (C)
Let two years ago, the ages of Naresh and Suresh was 3X and 2X. So one year hence, the ages of Naresh and Suresh would be 3X+3 and 2X+3 respectively. As per question; 15X + 15= 14X + 21 X = 6 Present age of Naresh =3*6 + 2 = 20 years Present age of Suresh = 2*6 + 2 = 14 years ∴Sum of their present ages = 20 + 14 = 34 years Aptitude Problems on Ages Test Paper 1 Aptitude Problems on Ages Test Paper 3 Aptitude Problems on Ages Test Paper 4 Aptitude Problems on Ages Test Paper 5 Problems on Ages Concepts Next TopicAptitude Problems on Ages Test Paper 2 |
