    Default "I am twenty five years old in fifty years appearance."

    "I am twenty five years old in fifty years appearance." Can that statement make sense?

    No.

    I'm 25 years old but I look like I'm 50.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
