Answer: (2) 2 years

Explanation:-
The average age of a husband and his 7 years ago = 25 years
Then, the sum of their present age = 2 (25 + 7)
= 2 x 32
= 64 years

A child born within 7 years so, their average ages is 22 years
Then, the sum of their age = 3 x 22
= 66 years

Thus, the present age of child = 66 – 64
= 2 years

Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 2 years.
