    Answer: (1) 18 years

    Explanation:-
    The age of Shan = 55 years

    Sathian is 5 years junior to Shan and  6 years senior to Balan.
    Then, age of Sahian = 55 – 5 = 50 years
    And, the age of Balan = 50 – 6 = 44 years

    The youngest brother of Balan is Devan he is 7 years junior to him.
    Then, the age of Devan = 44 – 7 = 37 years.

    The difference of ages between Shan and Devan = 55 – 37
    = 18 years.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 18 years.
