Answer: The sisters are 10.5 and 0.5 years old.
A common wrong answer by people too eager to answer quickly would be 10 and 1.
This is wrong since it’s mentioned that the differences in their age is 10 years.
It can be easily explained when put in equations;
Let us consider the 2 sisters to be S1 & S2.
Then from the given information in the riddle we can write;
S1 + S2 = 11 &
S1 = 10 + S2
Solving these 2 equations we would get the answer as;
S1 = 10.5 &
S2 = 0.5
There age of elder sister would be 10 years 6 months and younger sister would be 6 months.
