    Answer: (a) 14 years
    Explanation:-
    Let be the age of the youngest people = X

    According to question,
    the age of four people = X, X + 4, X + 8 and X + 12
    X + X + 4 + X + 8 + X + 12 = 80
    4X + 24 = 80
    4X = 80 -24 = 56
    X = 56/4 = 14
    Hence, the age of the youngest man = 14 years
