    Answer:the ages of the youngest and the eldest is 4 years and 20 Years respectively

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Ratio of the ages of three children is 2:5:1.

    Total ratio =2+5+1=8

    So that

    the 1st Child’s age =2/8 x 32=8  years

    2nd  Child’s age =5/8 x 32= 20 years

    3rd Child’s age =1/8 x 32= 4  years

    Therefore the ages of the youngest and the eldest is 4 years and 20 Years respectively.​
