##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Percentages

Given that Arun's present age in years is 40% of Barun's. And after few years, Arun’s age will be half of Barun’s. We have to find by what percentage will Barun’s age increase during this period.
So Arun’s present age is 2x and Barun’s present age will be equal to 5x.
2(2x + y) = 5x + y
4x + 2y = 5x + y
4x + 2y = 5x + y
y = x
So 2x and 5x becomes 3x and 6x respectively.
By what percentage will Barun's age increase during this period is that x increases of 5x so it increases by 20%.
Hence 20% of Barun’s age will increase during this period.

The question is "Arun's present age in years is 40% of Barun's. In another few years, Arun's age will be half of Barun's. By what percentage will Barun's age increase during this period? [TITA]"

##### Hence, the answer is 20
