Option 2 : 48 years

**Given:**

The ratio of present ages of Prakash and Sohan = 5 : 3

The present age of Sohan = 27 years

**Calculation:**

Let the present ages of Prakash and Sohan be 5x years and 3x years respectively.

According to the question,

3x = 27

⇒ x = 9

The present age of Prakash = 5x

⇒ 5 × 9

⇒ 45 years

The age of Prakash after 3 years = 45 + 3

⇒ 48 years

**∴ The age of Prakash after 3 years will be 48 years.**
