Answer :

1. 5;
Let the mother's and son's present age of x and y years respectively
From A;  x-y = 30
From B; y = 1/4x
⇒ 4y = x 
From C; y +  = 1/3 (x+5)
⇒ 3y + 15 = x + 5
⇒ x = 3y + 10
From A and B;
4y - y = 30
⇒ y = 30
∴ x = 40 years
From A and C;
30 + y = 3y + 10
⇒ 2y = 20
⇒ y = 10
∴ x = 40
From B and C;
4y - 3y = 10
⇒ y = 10
∴ x = 30 + 10 = 40
∴  We will get answer from any of the two statements.

2. 5;
Let the length of the train be x m and speed be v.

Similarly we can find answer from 'A' and 'C' or from 'B' and 'C'.

3. 3; 
From A; L = 2B
From B; L x B = 288
From C; Cost od fencing -= Rs. 150 per meter
From A, B and C; we get 
2B x B = 288
B² = 144
∴ B = 12m
L = 24m
∴ Cost of fencing = 2 x (12+24) x 150 = Rs. 10,800

4. 4; 
From A, B and C;
Cost price = Rs. 1000
