    C 10 years Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    D 24 years Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    E 16 years Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

    Solution

    Let Seema’s age at the time of her marriage be x Then, present age of Seema = 3x/2 According to the question x + 12 = 3x/2 3x/2 - x = 12 x/2 = 12 x = 24 years Now, daughter’s age = 1x/3 + 2 = (1/3) x 24 + 2 = 8 + 2 = 10 years
