    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.
