- 3 year
- 2 year
- 1 year
- 1.5 year

**Answer: (2) 2 years**

**Explanation:-**

Let be the age of new born baby= X years.

Three years ago the average age of 5 family member = 17 years

Then, the present age of 5 family member = 17 x 5 + 3 x 5 = 85 + 15 = = 100 years

According to the question,

The present age of new born baby = (100 + X)/6 = 17

(100 + X )/6 = 17

100 + X = 17 x 6

100 + X = 102

X = 102 – 100

X = 2 years

Hence, the answer is (2) 2 years.
