- 13.5
- 14
- 15
- 12.5

**Answer : 4 **

**Solution**

**At present the total age of the family **= 5 * 20 = 100

**The total age of the family at the time of the birth of the youngest member** = [100-10-(10*4)] = 50

**Therefore, average age of the family at the time of birth of the youngest member** = 50/4 = 12.5.
