We have not understood the query that you have posted. We would request you to clarify / provide additional details so that we may answer this to the best of the ability.

Son's age = x

Father's age = x2

After 5 years,

x + 5 = x2

x2 + 5 = 4x

Solving equation 1, we get

x2- x - 5 = 0

x2- 4x - 5 = 0

These are two different equation. Hence a contradiction.
