solved aptitude problems

Solution :

Now to solve this sum, there are many complicated ways But Ill show you the simplest one

We know that since there are 10 members, after 4 yrs each of them gets 4 yrs older. Hence the group combined, has aged 40 yrs. Hence,
If the new member has to keep the average the same as 4 yrs ago, he should be 40 yrs younger than the member he is replacing 😉

Hence the answer is 40 yrs
