Ten years ago, the ages of the members of a joint family of eight people added up to 231 years. Three years later, one member died at the age of 60 years and a child was born during the same year. After another three years, one more member died, again at 60, and a child was born during the same year. The current average age of this eight-member joint family is nearest to



A 21 years

B 25 years

C 24 years

D 23 years

E 22 years

Ans. C

10 years ago, total age of 8 members = 231

Three years later, sum of the ages
= 231 + 8 × 3 – 60 = 195

Three more years later, sum of the ages

= 195 + 8 × 3 – 60 = 159

Sum of current ages = 159 + 8 × 4 = 191
