A) 7 hours | B) 8 hours |

C) 12 hours | D) 14 hours |

Explanation:

Work done by the leak in 1 hour =

Leak will empty the tank in 14 hrs

A) 32.5 hrs | B) 29.25 hrs |

C) 30.30 hrs | D) 31 hrs |

Explanation:

Let the leak will empty the tank in x hrs

Then,

1/9 - 1/x = 1/13

x = 29.25 hrs

A) 4 hrs 15 min | B) 3 hrs 24 min |

C) 4 hrs 51 min | D) 3 hrs 45 min |

Explanation:

Time taken by one tap to fill half of the tank = 3 hrs.

Part filled by the taps in 1 hour = 4 x 1/6 = 2/3

Remaining part = 1 - 1/2 = 1/2

2/3 : 1/2 :: 1 : p

p = 1/2 x 1 x 3/2 = 3/4 hrs. i.e., 45 min

So, total time taken = 3 hrs 45 min.

A) 31 min | B) 29 min |

C) 28 min | D) 30 min |

Explanation:

Part filled by (A + B) in 1 minute = (1/60 + 1/40) = 1/24

Suppose the tank is filled in x minutes.

Then, x/2(1/24 + 1/40) = 1

(x/2) x (1/15) = 1 => x = 30 min.

A) 32 hrs | B) 24 hrs |

C) 28 hrs | D) 26 hrs |

Explanation:

1/K + 1/L + 1/M = 1/8 (Given)

Also given that K = 2L and L = 2M

=> 1/2L + 1/L + 2/L = 1/8

=> (1 + 2 + 4)/2L = 1/8

=> 2L/7 = 8

=> L = 28 hours.

A) 15 min 20 sec. | B) 16 min 40 sec. |

C) 13 min 10 sec. | D) 14 min 40 sec. |

Explanation:

Part filled in 4 minutes = 4(1/15 + 1/20) = 7/15

Remaining part = 1 - 7/15 = 8/15

Part filled by B in 1 minute = 1/20

1/20 : 8/15 :: 1 : k

k = 8/15 x 1 x 20 = 10 2/3 min = 10 min 40 sec.

The tank will be full in (4 min. + 10 min. 40 sec) = 14 min 40 sec.
