Answer :  I.3 years ago, ½(A +B) = 18  => 3 years ago, (A +B) = 36 . Now, (A +B) = (36 + 3 +3) =42 =>A+B=36   ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..(i)

II. Now, 1/3(A +B +C) = 22 => A +B +C => 66 ……………………………………………….(ii)

From I and II, we get C = (66 - 42)= 24.

Thus, I and II both together give the answer. Hence the answer is (e)
