### Question 1

2 years back the ratio of ages of X and Y was $1{1/20}$. The ratio of their ages 4 years from now would be $1{1/26}$. What is the present age of X?

**A**

23 years.

**B**

24 years.

**C**

22 years.

**D**

25 years.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let their present ages be x and y. Then ${x - 2}/{y - 2} = $ ${21/20}$, which is same as: $1{1/20}$. Similarly, ${x + 4}/{y + 4} = $ ${27/26}$, which is same as: $1{1/26}$. Solving these equations for x and y, we get y = 22, and x = 23 years as the answer.
