    Answer: (4) 15 years 

    Explanation:-
    The age of Adam = 20 years

    Adam is 4 times as old as Mary.
    Then, the age of Mary = 20/4
     = 5 years

    If the age of Adam is  20 + 10
     = 30 years
    Then, the age of Mary is 5 + 10 = 15 years. 

    Thus, Mery will be 15 years old when Adam is twice as old as her. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (4) 15 years.
