    Answer: (2) 40 years
    Explanation:-
    The total present ages of husband, wife and child = 27 x 3 + 3 x 3
    = 81 + 9  = 90 years.

    The total age of wife and child = 20 x 2 + 5 x 2
    = 40 + 10 = 50 years.

    Then, the husband’s present age = 90 – 50
    = 40 years.

    Hence, the present age of husband is 40 years.
