    Answer: (1) 27 years.
    Explanation:-
    Age of the daughter is 10 years.
    Mother’s age is three times of the daughter.
    Then, the mother’s age = 3 x 10 = 30 years.

    The father is 7 years older than the mother.
    Then, the father’s age = 30 + 7 = 37 years.

    So, the father’s age was 27 years old when his daughter was born.

    Hence, the answer is (1) 27 years.
