Time and Work Question & Answers
A contractor undertook a project to complete it in 20 days which needed 5 workers to work continuously for all the days estimated. But before the start of the work the client wanted to complete it earlier than the scheduled time, so the contractor calculated that he needed to increase 5 additional men every 2 days to complete the work in the time the client wanted it:
If the work was further increased by 50% but the contractor continues to increase the 5 workers o every 2 days then how many more days are required over the initial time specified by the client.
|A) 1 day||B) 2 days|
|C) 5 days||D) None of these|
Total work = 100+50 = 150man-days
In 8 days 100 man-days work has been completed. Now on 9th and 10th day there will be 25 workers. So in 2 days they wll complete additional 50 man- days work. Thus the work requires 2 more days.
