__SOLUTION__

1. Option D

A’s 1 day’s work = 1/15

B’s 1 day’s work = 1/20

(A + B)’s 1 day’s work = [1/15 + 1/20]= 7/60

(A + B)’s 4 day’s work = [7/60 * 4]=7/15

Therefore, Remaining work = [1- 7/15]= 8/15

2. Option C

(A + B + C)’s 1 day’s work = 1/4

A’s 1 day’s work = 1/16

B’s 1 day’s work = 1/12

C’s 1 day’s work = ¼[1/16 + 1/12 ]=1/4 - 7/48 =5/48

So, C alone can do the work in =

3. Option B

A’s 2 day’s work = [1/20 * 2 =1/10

(A + B + C)’s 1 day’s work = [1/20 + 1/30 + 1/60]=1/10

Work done in 3 days = [ 1/10 + 1/10]= 1/5

Now, 1/5 work is done in 3 days. Whole work will be done in (3 × 5) = 15 days

4. Option B

Ratio of times taken by A and B = 1 : 3

The time difference is (3 1) 2 days while B take 3 days and A takes 1 day.

If difference of time is 2 days, B takes 3 days.

If difference of time is 60 days, B takes [ 3/2 * 60]= 90 days

So, A takes 30 days to do the work.

A’s 1 day’s work =1/30

B’s 1 day’s work =1/90

(A + B)’s 1 day’s work = [1/30 + 1/90]=2/45

A and B together can do the work in 45/2= 22 1/2 days

5. Option B

C’s 1 day’s work =1/3 [ 1/6 + 1/8] =1/24

A’s wages : B’s wages : C’s wages = 1/6: 1/8: 1/24 = 4 : 3 : 1

C’s share (for 3 days) = Rs.[3 ]= Rs.400

6. Option D

(P + Q + R)’s 1 hour’s work =[1/8+1/10+1/12]=37/120

Work done by P, Q and R in 2 hours = [37/120*2]=37/60

Remaining work = [1- 37/60 ]=23/60

(Q + R)’s 1 hour’s work = [1/10+1/12]=11/60

Now, work is done by Q and R in 1 hour.

So, work will be done by Q and R in [60/11 * 23/60]= 23/11

= hours 2 hours So, the work will be finished approximately 2 hours after 11 A.M., i.e., around 1 P.M.

7. Option C

B’s 10 day’s work = [1/15*10]=2/3

Remaining work = [1 - 2/3 ]=1/3

Now,1/18 work is done by A in 1 day.

1/3 work is done by A in[18*1/3]

= 6 days.

8. Option B

Let 1 man’s 1 day’s work = x and 1 woman’s 1 day’s work = y. Then, 4x + 6y = 1/8 and 3x + 7y =1/10

Solving the two equations, we get x =11/400 , y =1/4000

1 woman’s 1 day’s work = 1/4000

10 women’s 1 day’s work = [1/400*10]=1/40

= Hence, 10 women will complete the work in 40 days.

9. Option D

(A + B)’s 20 day’s work =[1/30*20]=2/3

Remaining work = [1- 2/3 ]=1/3

Now, 1/3 work is done by A in 20 days.

Therefore, the whole work will be done by A in (20 × 3) = 60 days.

10. Option A

P can complete the work in (12 × 8) hrs. = 96 hrs.

Q can complete the work in (8 × 10) hrs. = 80 hrs.

P’s 1 hour’s work = and Q’s 1 hour’s work =1/80

[P + Q)’s 1 hour’s work = [1/96 + 1/80]= 11/480

So, both P and Q will finish the work in [480/11]hrs.

Number of days of 8 hours each =[480/11 * 1/8]

= 60/11 days =5 days

11. Option C

1 woman’s 1 day’s work = 1/70

1 child’s 1 day’s work = 1/140

(5 women + 10 children)’s day’s work = [ 5/70 + 10/140] = 1/7

= 5 women and 10 children will complete the work in 7 days.

12. Option B

Suppose A, B and C take x, and days respectively to finish the work.

Then, 1/X + 2/X + 3/X=1/2

6/x=1/2= x = 12

So, B takes (12/2) = 6 days to finish the work.

13. Option C

(A + B)’s 1 day’s work = [1/15+ 1/10]= 1/6

Work done by A and B in 2 days =[1/6*2]=1/3

Remaining work = [1 - 1/3 ]=2/3

Now, 1/15 work is done by A in 1 day.

2/3work will be done by A in [15*2/3]= 10 days

Hence, the total time taken = (10 + 2) = 12 days.

14. Option A

2 (A + B + C)’s 1 day’s work = 1/30 + 1/24 + 1/20 = 1/8

Therefore, (A + B + C)’s 1 day’s work = 1/2*8= 1/16

Work done by A, B, C in 10 days = 10/16=5/8

Remaining work =[1 ]=3/8

A’s 1 day’s work = [1/24 1/24]=1/48

Now,1/48 work is done by A in 1 day.

So, 3/8 work will be done by A in

= 18 days.

15. Option A

Ratio of rates of working of A and B = 2 : 1

So, ratio of times taken = 1 : 2

B’s 1 day’s work =1/12

A’s 1 day’s work =1/6 ; (2 times of B’s work)

(A + B)’s 1 day’s work = [1/6+ 1/12]= 3/12=1/4

So, A and B together can finish the work in 4 days.

16. Option B

(20 × 16) women can complete the work in 1 day.

1 woman’s 1 day’s work = 1/320

(16 × 15) men can complete the work in 1 day.

1 man’s 1 day’s work =1/240

So, required ratio = 1/240:1/320

= 1/3:1/4 =

4 : 3 (cross multiplied)
