**1. **Anita is 24. She is twice as old Bala was, when she was as old as Bala is now. What is Bala's present age?

(a) 14 years

(b) 16 years

(c) 20 years

(d) 18 years

(e) None of these

**Ans 1.** Let x = Anita's age now.= Difference between their ages NOW is 24-x.

24 - x years ago, Bala was a years old, while Anita was x-(24-x) = 2x - 24.

During that time, x = 2(2x-24), or x = 4x - 48, or 3x = 48, or x = 16.

Thus Anita is 16 years old now.

Let Ravi = R

∴ R + 3 = B

When sister S was born, i.e. when S = 0,

F = 28, M = 26 ....(1)

When B = 0, S = 4

When R = 0, S = 7

At this stage, F = 35 (Using (1))
