Q:

A and B together can do a piece of work in 40 days. A having worked for 20 days, B finishes the remaining work alone in 60 days. In How many days shall B finish the  whole work alone?

A) 60 B) 70
C) 80 D) 90

Answer:   C) 80



Explanation:

Let A's 1 day's work=x and B's 1 day's work=y

Then x+y = 1/40 and 20x+60y=1 

Solving these two equations , we get : x= 1/80 and y= 1/80

Therefore B's  1 day work = 1/80

Hence,B alone shall finish the whole work in 80 days

Q:

If a soldier fires 7 shots from a gun in 12 minutes then find the total number of shots fired by the man in 3/2 hrs.

A) 45 B) 44
C) 46 D) 47
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 46

Here given soldier shots 7 shots in 12 min

=> 1 shot doen't take any time in 12 min

=> Only 6 shots take 12 min

12 min ------ 6 shots

90 min ------ ? shots

=> 90x6/12 = 45

Therefore, total shots fired in 90 minutes = 45 + 1 = 46 shots.

Q:

A woman fills a bucket in 6 minutes. 1845 buckets have to be filled from 8 am. to 9:30 am. How many woman employees should be employed for this task?

A) 111 B) 117
C) 123 D) 139
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 123

Explanation:

We know that,

M1 × D1W1 = M2 × D2W2

Here M1 = 1, D1 = 6 min, W1 = 1 and M2 = M, D2 = 90 min, W2 = 1845

1 × 61 = M × 901845

=> M = 123

Q:

If 6 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days while 26 men and 48 boys can do the same in 2 days what is time taken by 15 men and 20 boys?

A) 4 days B) 6 days
C) 7 days D) 5 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 4 days

Explanation:


Given that

6 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days

26 men and 48 boys can do the same in 2 days

As the work done is equal,

10(6M + 8B) = 2(26M + 48B)

60M + 80B = 52M + 96B

=> M = 2B

=> B = M/2 ……(1)

Now Put (1) in 15M + 20B

=> 15M + 10M = 25M

Now, 6M + 8B in 10 days

=> (6M + 4M) 10 = 100M

Then D(25M) = 100M

=> D = 4 days.

Q:

A certain job was assigned to a group of women to do it in 20 days. But 12 women did not turn up for the job and the remaining did the job in 32 days. The original number of women in the group was?

A) 36 B) 32
C) 22 D) 28
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 32

Explanation:

Let the total women in the group be 'W'

Then according to the given data,

W x 20 = (W-12) x 32

=> W = 32

Therefore, the total number of women in the group = 32

Q:

P is 30% more efficient than Q. How much time will they, working together, take to complete a job which P alone could have done in 23 days?

A) 16 days B) 13 days
C) 15 days D) 12 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 13 days

Explanation:

Ratio of times taken by P & Q = 100 : 130 = 10:13

 

Let Q takes x days to do the work

Then, 10:13 :: 23:x

=> x = 23x13/10

=> x = 299/10

 

P's 1 day's work = 1/23

Q's 1 day's work = 10/299

(P+Q)'s 1 day's work = (1/23 + 10/299) = 23/299 = 1/13

Hence, P & Q together can complete the work in 13 days.

A) 3 days B) 6 days
C) 4 days D) 2 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4 days

Explanation:

From the given data,

=> (2 M + 3W) 8 = (3M + 2W)7

=> 16M + 24W = 21M + 14 W

=> 10W = 5M

=> 2W = M

=> 14W × ? = 7W × 8

? = 4 days

Q:

28 Men and 52 women working together completes a work in 22.5 days. 35 men and 65 women working together on same work will complete it in how many days?

A) 16 B) 18
C) 19 D) 21
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 18

Explanation:

clearly total persons are increased in => 28/35 :: 52/65 = 4:5

 

As time is inversely proportional to men, so total time will decrease in the ratio 5:4

 

Hence, 22.5 x 4/5 = 18 days.

Q:

X can complete the work in 10 days, Y can do the same in 15 days. If they are hired for 5 days to do the work together, what is the work that left unfinished?

A) 1/3 B) 2/3
C) 1/6 D) 5/6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 1/6

Explanation:

Given X can do in 10 days 

=> 1 day work of X = 1/10

 

Y can do in 15 days 

=> 1 day work of Y = 1/15

 

1day work of (X + Y) = 1/10 + 1/15 = 1/6

 

Given they are hired for 5 days

 => 5 days work of (X + Y) = 5 x 1/6 = 5/6

 Therefore, Unfinished work = 1 - 5/6 = 1/6
