At present, the ratio between ages of Ram and Shyam is 6:5 respectively. After 7 years, Shyam’s age will be 32 years. What is the present age of Ram?
(A) 32
(B) 40
(C) 30
(D) 36


Answer: (C)

Explanation:

Let the present age of Ram and Shyam be 6x years and 5x years respectively.

Then 5x + 7 = 32
∴      5x = 25
∴        x = 5
∴ Present age of Ram = 6x = 30 years
