    let age of c be x
    b’s age=2x
    a’s age=2x+2
    a’age+b’sage+c’age=27
    (2x+2)+2x+x=27
    5x+2=27
    5x=25
    x=5
    Therefore age of b is 2*5=10

    b=a+2=>a=b-2
    b=b=>b
    b=2c=>c=b/2
    a+b+c=27=>(b-2)+b+(b/2)=27=>b=10

    Explanation :
    C’s age – x years
    B’s age – 2x years
    A’s age – (2x + 2) years.
    So, (2x + 2) + 2x + x = 27
    5x = 25
    x = 5.

    Hence, B’s age = 2x = 10 years.
