Solution(By Apex Team)

$\begin{array}{l}\text{According to the question,}\\
=\large\frac{\text{Ram}+2\mathrm{C}}{3}\\
=17\text{ years }\\
\text{Ram}+2C=51\ \text{years}…..(i)\\
=\large\frac{\text{ Wife }+2C}{3}\\
=16\text{ vears }\\
\text{Wife + 2C = 48 years…..(ii)}\end{array}$
If Ram age = 33 years old
Put this value in equation (i)
∴ 2C = 51 – 33
2C = 18 years old…..(iii)
Put this value in equation (ii)
Wife + 18 = 48
Wife = 48 – 18 = 30
wife = 30 years old
