There are 5 brothers in a family. All were born at a gap of 3 years. If the sum total of ages of 5 brothers is 100. Which of the following options is/are correct ?

Note – This question is multiple select questions (MSQ).
(A) Age of 2nd most elder brother is 32

(C) Difference between age of 2nd most elder brother and age of youngest brother is 9
(D) Addition of age of 2nd most elder brother and age of youngest brother is 46

Answer: (B) (C)

Explanation: Let the age of youngest brother be x
Then, x + (x + 3) + (x + 6) + (x + 9) + (x + 12) = 100 => 5x = 70 => x = 14
Therefore, age of 2nd most elder brother = 14 + 9 = 23.

So, option (B) and (C) are correct.
