## Question

**A man is 24 years older than his son. In two years, his age will be twice the age of his son. What is the present age of his son?**

A. 22 years

B. 20 years

C. 23 years

D. 21 years

**Answer:** A

**Solution:**

Let present age of the son = x years

Then, present age the man = (x + 24) years

Given that, in 2 years, man’s age will be twice the age of his son

=> (x+24) +2 = 2 (x+2)

**=> x = 22** **years**
