    Let Age of Mahima = x.
    Age of Anita = 2x.
    Age of Rajan = x/2.
    Age of Deepti = 4x.
    Age of Lata = x/4.

    Correct Option: A

    Let Age of Mahima = x.
    Age of Anita = 2x.
    Age of Rajan = x/2.
    Age of Deepti = 4x.
    Age of Lata = x/4.
    Now we have the following arrangements in descending order
    Deepti > Anita > Mahima > Rajan > Lata

    Deepti is eldest

    Let Age of Mahima = x.
    Age of Anita = 2x.
    Age of Rajan = x/2.
    Age of Deepti = 4x.
    Age of Lata = x/4.

    The age of Amit is same as Sumit
    Amit = Sumit,
    Richa is younger than Sumit
    Sumit > Richa
    Richa is younger than Jyotsana
    Jyotsana > Richa
    Sumit is younger than Jyotsana
    Jyotsana > Sumit

    Correct Option: B

    The age of Amit is same as Sumit
    Amit = Sumit,
    Richa is younger than Sumit
    Sumit > Richa
    Richa is younger than Jyotsana
    Jyotsana > Richa
    Sumit is younger than Jyotsana
    Jyotsana > Sumit
    Finally
    Amit = Sumit, Sumit > Richa
    Jyotsana > Richa > Saurabh
    Jyotsana > Sumit
    On arranging the above data, we get
    ∴ Jyotsana > Sumit= Amit > Richa > Saurabh
    So, Jyotsana is eldest among them.
