Correct Answer: **D.** *40*

If the sum of the four son’s ages is x at present, the father’s age is 2x. In 30 years, the total of the son’s ages will be x+4×30=x+120, whereas the father’s age will be 2x+30. Therefore, x+120=2(2x+30), which yields x=20, and hence, the father’s age at present is 2x=40.
