to #1:
Code:
           | age today       age in 12 years
-------------------------------------------
daughter   |     x        |    x+12
mother     |    3x        |    3x+12
-------------------------------------------
The last column yields an equation in x:

$2(x+12) = 3x+12~\implies~\boxed{x=12}$

to #2: I assume thast there is a typo. If you take 22 instaed of 220 then you'll get a plausible result:

Let m, r denote to ages of Meera and Ritu respectively. Then you can set up the following system of equations:

$\begin{array}{l}m - r = 30 \\ m+22 = 2(r+22)\end{array}$

Solve for m and r. (For your confirmation only: r = 8, m = 38)

It is better if you post your efforts here. We will be able to guide you so that you score well in the tests.

I will show you Q1), you try the remaining and tell us if you get stuck somewhere.

Lets call daughter's age as d and mother's age as m.

A daughter's age is one-third of her mother's age
$d = \frac{m}{3} \Rightarrow m = 3d$

After 12 years.....
After 12 years, daughter's age is d+12 and mother's age m+12.

......daughter's age will be half of mother's age
So the daughters age later is half of mothers age. So

$d+12 = \frac{m+12}{2}$
$\Rightarrow m+12=2(d+12)$
$\Rightarrow m + 12 = 2d + 24$
$\Rightarrow m = 2d + 12$

Now use the first equation $m = 3d$,

$\Rightarrow m = 2d + 12$
$\Rightarrow 3d = 2d + 12$
$\Rightarrow d = 12$
