Solution(By Apex Team)

According to the question,
Average age of 5 members today = 33 years
Sum of ages of 5 members today = 33 × 5 = 165 years
If the youngest member is 9 year old
∴ Sum of the age of 4 members before the birth of youngest child
= 165 – 9 – 4 × 9
= 120 years
∴ Average $=\Large\frac{120}{4}$
=30 years
