Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 32 years

The logic follows here is:

As given,

Bala = 40 years

i) Akshay is younger than Bala

means,

Bala > Akshay 

ii) Rahul is between Akshay and Anirudh

means,

Akshay > Rahul > Anirudh

iii) While Bala is between Akshay and Darpan

means,

Darpan > Bala > Akshay

Thus combining all statements we get:

Darpan > Bala > Akshay > Rahul > Anirudh.

Now, it is given here is a consecutive difference of 4 years between their ages, and Bala's age is 40 years.

Rahul = Bala ages - 8 years.

Rahul = 40 - 8 years

Rahul = 32 years.

Hence, the correct answer is "32 years".
