Solution

## The correct option is C 4:1 Grandfather's present age is 72 years. Grandson's present age is 12 years. After 8 years, grandfather's age would be : 72+8=80 years and grandson's age would be : 12+8=20 years. So, after 8 years, the ratio of grandfather's age to grandson's age would be: 8020=41=4:1.
