### Question 1

My present age is 315 times the reciprocal of my age 6 years back. What is my present age?

**A**

21 years.

**B**

22 years.

**C**

20 years.

**D**

23 years.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the present age be x. Then $x = 315/{x - 6}$. At this stage a better option is that you try putting the given answers into this expression one by one. The other option is to simplify this expression into a quadratic equation $x × (x - 6)$ = 315. This can now be solved to give x = 21 years.
