    Answer : Option A

    Explanation :

     I. Let Ravi's present age be x years. Then, his father's present age = 2x years.


     II. After 5 years,\( \frac { \text{Ravi's age} } { \text{Father's age} } \)=\( \frac { 6} { 11 }\)


    III. Ravi is younger than his brother.


    From I and II, we get,\( \frac {X+5 } { 2X+5 } \)=\( \frac { 6} { 11 }\)This gives x, the answer


    Thus, I and II together give the answer. Clearly, III is redundant.


     Correct answer is (A).
