Let us assume 10 years ago, ages of Ram, Shyam and Mohan were 2x, 3x and 4x years respectively.
Correct Option: A
Let us assume 10 years ago, ages of Ram, Shyam and Mohan were 2x, 3x and 4x years respectively.
Present ages of Ram, Shyam and Mohan will be 2x + 10 , 3x + 10 and 4x + 10 years.

⇒ 9x + 30 = 93
⇒ 9x = 93  30
⇒ 9x = 63
⇒ x = 7
The present age of mohan = 4x + 10 = 4x7 + 10 = 38 years
