## 6. If 6 is subtracted from the present age of Ritu and the remainder is divided by 6, then the present age of Sheema is obtained. If Sheema is 4 years younger to raju whose age is 12 years, then find the age of Ritu

**Answer:**

**Option A**

**Explanation :**

Lets assume Ritu present age = x years

so sheema age = (x-6)/6 years

As per question:

sheema age [(x-6)/6 + 4] = 12

(x-6)/6 = 12 - 4

=> (x-6)/6 = 8

=> x - 6 = 48 => x = 54

So Ritu age = 54 years.
