# 10 years ago, Chandravati’s mother was 4 times older than her daughter

10 years ago, Chandravati’s mother was 4 times older than her daughter. After 10 years, the mother will be twice older than the daughter. The present age of Chandravati is

(a) 5 years

(b) 10 years

(c) 20 years

(d) 30 years

**Answer: (c) 20 years **

**Solution:-**

Let Chandravati’s age 10 years ago be X years.

Therefore, mother’s age 10 years ago = 4 X years

From Question 2(x + 20) = (4 X + 20)

=> X = 10

So, Present age of Chandravati = (x + 10) = 20 years.

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 20 years.
