Now think carefully, don’t rush.

If you are unsure, please take your time and read it again.
We will show you the answer below!
The correct answer is that the brother is now 56 years.
When this person was 8, then the brother was half of age, which means the brother’s age was 8×1/2 = 4 years. This means this person is older than the brother by 4 years.
This age difference will be persistently maintained throughout the life of both.
Brother’s present age = This person’s age – Age difference.
60 – 4 = 56 years. Brother’s present age = 56 years.
