    Answer : Option D

    Explanation :

      I. 5 years ago, Arun's age = 2 x His son's age.


     II. Let the present ages of Arun and his son be 11x and 6x years respectively.


     III.  5 years hence,\(\frac {Arun's Age } {son' sage } \)=\( \frac { 1 2} {7 } \)


    Clearly, any two of the above will give Arun's present age.


     Correct answer is (D).
