Five years ago Vinay’s age was one-third of the age of Vikas and now Vinay’s age is 17 years. What is the present age of Vikas?

- 9 years
- 36 years
- 41 years
- 51 years

**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
