a) 35

b) 28

c) 32

d) 33

**Answer: **a)

**Explanation:** Suppose father’s present age = x years

Therefore, daughter’s present age

= (42 - x) years

[Because the sum of father’s age & daughter’s age is 42]

Now, according to the given situation, after 7 years father will be 3 times older than the daughter’s age

(x + 7) = 3{ (42 - x) +7}

x + 7 = 126 - 3x + 21

x + 3x = 126 + 21 - 7

4x = 126 + 21 - 7

4x = 140

x = 140/4 = 35

Hence, father’s present age X = 35 years
