    Mr. Jones can't remember the year of her birth but she knows that she was born in the month of September. It it is now May 2010, and Ms. Jones tells you she is 78 years old, in what year was she born?

    • A.

      1932

    • C.

      1930

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. 1931
    Explanation
    Given that it is May 2010 and Ms. Jones is 78 years old, we can subtract 78 from 2010 to find the year she was born. This calculation gives us the year 1932. However, since Ms. Jones knows she was born in September, we need to subtract another year to account for the fact that she has not yet reached her birthday in September. Therefore, the correct answer is 1931.
