1. 32
2. 42

4. In a family, mother's age is twice that of daughter's age. Father is 10 years older than mother. Brother is 20 years younger than his mother and 5 years older than his sister. What is the age of the father?
1. 62 years
2. 60 years
3. 58 years
4. 55 years

Suppose the age of daughter is x years.
Age of brother = x + 5 years
Age of mother = 2x years
∴ 2x - 20 = x + 5
⇒ 2x - x = 5 + 20
⇒ x = 25 years
Age of mother = 2x = 2 × 25 = 50 years
Age of father = 50 + 10 = 60 years
