Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 12 years

Given:

The ratio between the ages of Raju and Deepak is 7: 3.

After 5 years, Raju's age will be 33 years

Calculations:

Let the present ages of Raju and Deepak be 7x years and 3x years respectively

According to the question

⇒ 7x + 5 = 33

⇒ 7x = 28

⇒ x = 4

Deepak's age = 3x = 12 years

Deepak’s present age is 12 years
