• A.

20

• B.

• C.

• D.

• E.

B. 24
Explanation
Mary is currently four times as old as her brother. Let's assume her brother's age is x. Therefore, Mary's age is 4x. We need to find the age at which Mary is twice as old as her brother. Let's assume this age is y. So, at age y, Mary's age will be 2 times her brother's age. This can be written as 4x + y = 2(x + y). Simplifying this equation, we get y = 2x. Since Mary is currently 16, her brother's age must be 4. Substituting this value, we find that Mary will be 24 when she is twice as old as her brother.
