(A) 33 years
(B) 34 years
(C) 38 years
(D) 32 years


Answer: (A)

Explanation: Let’s Max’s present age be x years. Then, Cooper’s present age is (3x + 3) years. According to the question,
(3x + 3) + 3 = 2(x + 3) + 10
⇒ 3x + 6 = 2x + 16
⇒ x = 10.
Therefore, Cooper’s present age is (3x + 3) = 33 years.
