Option 4 : 9

Ratio of Present ages of Sameer and Prashant = 2 : 3

Assume;

Age of Sameer = 2x

Age of Prashant = 3x

**After 6 years;**

Age of Sameer = 2x + 6

Age of Prashant = 3x + 6

According to question;

**(2x + 6) : (3x + 6) = 4 : 5**

(2x + 6) × 5 = 4 × (3x + 6)

10x + 30 = 12x + 24

12x - 10x = 30 - 24

2x = 6

x = 3

So;

**Age of Sameer = 2x = 6 years**

**Age of Prashant = 3x = 9 years**

Hence, **option (4)** is the correct answer.
