# What is age difference between devan and shan?

Shan is 55 years old. Sathian is 5 years junior to Shan and 6 years senior to Balan. The youngest brother of Balan is Devan and he is 7 years junior to him. So what is the age difference between Devan and Shan?

- 18 years
- 15 years
- 13 years
- 7 years

**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.
