Solution(By Apex Team)

Sum of the ages of 8 members, 10 years ago = 231 years
Sum of the ages of all members, 7 years ago
= (231 + 8 × 3 – 60) years
= 195 years
Sum of the ages of all members, 4 years ago
= (195 + 8 × 3 – 60) years
= 159 years
Sum of the present ages of all 8 members
= (159 + 8 × 4) years
= 191 years
∴ Current average age = $\Large\frac{191}{8}$ years
= 23.8 years ≈
24 years
