CAT 2017 [slot 1] Question with solution 01

Question 1:
Arun's present age in years is 40% of Barun's. In another few years, Arun's age will be half of Barun's. By what percentage will Barun's age increase during this period?
Answer: 20
Explanation:

Let Arun's current age be A. Hence, Barun's current age is 2.5A
Let Arun's age be half of Barun's age after X years.
Therefore, 2×(X+A) = 2.5A + X
Or, X = 0.5A
Hence, Barun's age increased by 0.5A/2.5A = 20%
