I am debating with a friend about how to interpret this trivia sentence.
When asked how old she is, Jane says:
"In two years, I will be twice as old as I was five years ago..."
Would the answer be eight because in 2 years Jane will be ten which is twice as old as she was five years ago? Or would it be 12 because in 2 years Jane will be 14 which is twice as old as she was five years ago from today?
So, is "the five years ago" portion of the question relating to today or 2 years from today?
Thank you for any help.
