Best Answer

they were born in 1937


This becomes a trickier question than it looks.

It is assumed that the current year (2012) and current month (September) is the year for comparison against. Based on this, the answer should be 1939.

If we accept that the original answer is correct then we have to qualify the question as follows, "Given that the year is 2010 and the month is September, if someone is 72 years old and they were born in November, what year were they born in?"
