    Answer is (3) 30, 10 

    Explanation:-
    Lat the age of Raghu be X years 5 years ago.
    Then, the age of Rajesh 5 years ago = 5 X years

    Therefore, the present age Rajesh = (X + 5) years and the age of Raghu = 5 X + 5) years
    The difference of their ages = 20 years

    Then,  (5 X + 5) – (X + 5) = 20 
     5 X + 5 – X – 5 = 20 
    4 X = 20 
     X = 20/4
    X = 5 years

    Then, the present age of Rajesh = X + 5 = 5 + 5 
     = 10 years
    And, the present age of Raghu = 5 X + 5 = 5 x 5 +  5
     = 25 + 5 
     = 30 years

    Then, the present age of Rajesh is 10 years and the present age of Raghu is 30 years.

    Hence, the answer is (3) 30 , 10 years.
