    Answer: 37 years.
    Explanation:-
    The average of ages of the four brothers = 12 years
    Total age of the four brothers = 12 x 4 = 48 years

    Let the age of their mother be = X years

    If the mother’s age included then, average increased by 5 years
    Therefore,         48 + X = (12 + 5) x 5
    48 + X = 85
    X = 85 – 48 = 37

    Hence, the age of the mother is 37 years.
