The average age of a group of 10 students was 14. The average age increased by 1 years when two new students joined the group. What is the average age of the two new students who joined the group?

A.) 20
B.) 20.5
C.) 21.5
D.) 19

Answer: Option 'A'

The average age of a group of 10 students is 14.
Therefore, the sum of the ages of all 10 of them = 10 * 14 = 140
When two students joins the group, the average increase by 1. New Average = 15
Now there are 12 students
Therefore, sum of all the ages of 12 students = ( 12 X 15 ) = 180
Therefore, the sum of the ages of two students who joined = 180 - 140 = 40
And the average age of these two students =20

Six years ago, the ratio of the ages of Kunal and Sagar was 6 : 5. Four years hence, the ratio of their ages will be 11 : 10. What is Sagar's age at present?

A.) 16 years
B.) 20 years
C.) 18 years
D.) Cannot be determined

Answer: Option 'A'

Given, Six years ago, the ratio of ages ofKunal and Sagar = 6 : 5
Thus, the ages of Kunal and Sagar 6 years ago be 6x and 5x years respectively.
Then, the present age of Kunal = 6x + 6
the present age of Sagar = 5x + 6
Given,Four years hence, the ratio of their ages will be 11 : 10
=> The age of Kunal after four years = 6x + 6 + 4 = 6x + 10
The age of Sagar after four years = 5x + 6 + 4 = 5x + 10
=>(6x + 10) / (5x + 10) = 11 / 10
=> 10 (6x + 10) = 11 (5x + 10)
=> 60x + 100 = 55x + 110
=> 60x - 55x = 110 - 100
=> 5x = 10
=> x = 2
Thus, present age of Sagar =5x + 6
= 5(2) + 6
= 10 + 6
16 years
