25. Two boys are playing on a ground. Both the boys are less than 10

years old. Age of the younger boy is equal to the cube root of the

product of the age of the two boys. If we place the digit representing

the age of the younger boy to the left of the digit representing the age

of the elder boy, we get the age of the father of the younger boy.

Similarly, we place the digit representing the age of the elder boy to

the left of the digit representing the age of the younger boy and divide

the figure by 2, we get the age of the mother of the younger boy. The

mother of the younger boy is younger than his father by 3 years.

Then, what is the age of the younger boy.

of which 10% remained vacant. 40% of the waiting passengers are

ladies. When boarding announcements came, passengers of flights A

left the hall and boarded the flight. Seating capacity of each flight is

two-third of the passengers who waited in the waiting hall for both the

flights put together. Half the passengers who boarded flight A are

women. After boarding for flight A, 60% of the waiting hall seats

became empty. For every twenty of those who are still waiting in the

hall for flight B, there is one airhostess in flight A. Then, what is the

ratio of empty seats in flight B to number of airhostesses in flight A?
