10 years ago, the average age of a family of 5 members was 25 years. In the last 10 years 2 children were born in the family. The family now has 7 members.

A) 7 years
B) 18 years
C) 9 years
D) Can’t be determined
Correct Answer : 9 years Explanation : Total age of 5 members, 10 years ago = (25 * 5) years = 125 years Total age of 5 members now = (125 + 10 * 5) years = 175 years Total age of 7 members now = (27 * 7) years = 189 years Sum of the ages of 2 children = (189  175) years = 14 years Let the age of the younger child be x years. Then, age of the elder child = (x + 4) years So, x + x + 4 = 14 <=> 2x = 10 <=> x=5 Hence, Age of younger child = 5 years,
