# SSCCGL Reasoning Solved Question Paper 2016

#### Multiple Choice Questions

10.

The sum of the ages of father and a son presently is 70 years. After 10 years, the son's age is exactly half that of the father. What are their ages now?

• 45 years, 25 years

• 50 years, 20 years

• 47 years, 23 years

• 50 years, 25 years

B.

50 years, 20 years

Suppose the age of son = x years
therefore, Age of the father = 70 - x
After 10 years
2(x+ 10) = 70 -x + 10
2x+ 20 = 80 -x
2x + x = 80 - 20
3x = 60
x = 60/3 = 20 Years

Age of father = 70 - 20 = 50 years
