20 + 24 + 8 * 2 = 60/2 = 30

According to Mohan 17th, 18th, or 19th …(i)

According to his sister 19th, 20th, 21st or 22nd …(ii)

From (i) and (ii) => 19th

Sum of the present ages of husband, wife and child = (27 * 3 + 3 * 3) years = 90 years.

Sum of the present ages of wife and child = (20 * 2 + 5 * 2) years = 50 years.

Therefore, Husband's present age = (90 - 50) years = 40 years

Let C's age be x years

Then, B's age = 2x years

A's age = (2x + 2) years

(2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27

5x = 25 => x = 5

Hence, B's age = 2x = 10 years

Let the school ages of Neelam and Shaan be 5x and 6x years respectively.

Then, (1/3 * 5x)/(1/2 * 6x) = 5/9

15 = 15

Thus, Shaan's age cannot be determined.

Let the mother's present age be x years. Then, the person's present age = 2/5 x years.

(2/5 x + 8) = 1/2 (x + 8)

2(2x + 40) = 5(x + 8) => x = 40

(A + B) - (B + C) = 12

A - C = 12

Let the son's present age be x years.

Then, (38 - x) = x

2x = 38 => x = 19

Son's age 5 years back = (19 - 5) = 14 years

Let the present age of the person be x years.

Then, 3(x + 3) - 3(x - 3) = x

3x + 9 - 3x + 9 = x => x = 18

Present ages of son and father be x years (56 -x)years

(56- x +4) = 3(x + 4) or 4x =48 or x = 12

Ages are 12 years, 44 years
