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.
