    Answer: (3) 41 years
    Explanation:-
    Present age of Vinay = 17 years
    Five years ago Vinay’s age = 17 – 5 = 12 years
    According to question,
    Five years ago Vikas age = 12 x 3 = 36 years
    So, the present age of Vikas = 36 + 5 = 41 years
    Hence, the present age of Vikas is 41 years.
