Current age of oldest child for whom Jane baby sat = Child for whom she baby-sat when she was 18 = 9 + 14 = 23

Jane 18 22 32

Babies <=9

oldest baby = 9 year old baby that she could have baby sat when she was 18.

oldest baby's current age = 9+14 (as its been 14 years since she sat that baby) = 23

A. 21
B. 22
C. 23
D. 24
E. 25

Check two extreme cases:
Jane = 18, child = 9, years ago = 32-18 = 14 --> child's age now = 9+14 = 23;
Jane = 22, child = 11, years ago = 32-22 = 10 --> child's age now = 11+10 = 21.
