QA – Placement Quizzes | Age | Question 9

If difference of ages of Ram and Shyam is 16 years. If 6 year ago, the Ram’s age is 3 times as old the Shyam, What are Ram and Shyam’s respective present ages?

(A) 17, 30
(B) 30, 14
(C) 15, 32
(D) 14, 30


Answer: (D)

Explanation:

Let the age of Ram is x,
Then elder person age is (x+16)
=> 3(x-6) = (x+16-6) [6 years before]
=> 3x-18 = x+10
=> x = 14.
So other person age is x + 16 = 30
