Q. |
The age of Mr. Chetan in 2002 was 1/90 of his birth year. What is his age in 2006? |

✖ A. |
30 |

✖ B. |
28 |

✔ C. |
26 |

✖ D. |
22 |

**Solution:**

Option(**C**) is correct

Let age of Chetan in 2002 = $x$

So,

\(\dfrac{2002-x}{90}=x\)

$⇒ x=22$

So, Chetan’s age in 2006 is,

$= 22+4 = 26 \textbf{ yrs}$

Killing it slightly:
