# Time and Work Questions

A) 48 min | B) 54 min |

C) 30 min | D) none of these |

Explanation:

**In ideal Case:**

Time taken to fill the half tank by A and B = = hours

Time taken by A,B and C to fill rest half of the tank = = 3 hours

Total time = = 4 hours 12 min

**In second case:**

** **Time taken to fill tank by A and B = hours

Time taken by A,B and C to fill rest tank = hours

Total time = =3 hours 18 min

Therefore , difference in time = 54 minutes

A) A | B) B |

C) C | D) can't be determined |

Explanation:

A + B= 70%

B + C =50%

B= 20% A= 50% and C=30%

Hence A is most efficient

A) 4 days | B) 5 days |

C) 6 days | D) 7 days |

Explanation:

Work donee by A and B in the first two hours, working alternatively = First hour A + Second hour B = (1/4) + (1/12) = 1/3.

Thus, the total time required to complete the work = 2 (3) = 6 days

A) 3 hours | B) 4 hours |

C) 5 hours | D) None of these |

Explanation:

Rate of leakage = 8.33% per hour

Net efficiency = 50 - (16.66 + 8.33)= 25%

Time required = 100/25 = 4 hours
