Q:

12 men complete a work in 9 days. After they have worked for 6 days, 4 more men join them. How many days will they take to complete the remaining work ?

A) 2 days B) 2.5 days
C) 2.25 days D) 3 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 2.25 days

Explanation:

1 man's 1 day work = 1/108
12 men's 6 day's work = 1/9 x 6 = 2/3

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

16 men's 1 day work = 1/108 x 16 = 4/27
4/27 work is done by them in 1 day.

1/3 work is done by them in 27/4 x 1/3 = 9/4 days.

Q:

P alone can complete a piece of work in 6 days. Work done by Q alone in one day is equal to one-third of the work done by P alone in one day. In how many days can the work be completed if P and Q work together  ?

A) 5 (2/3) B) 6 (3/4 )
C) 4 (1/2) D) 3
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4 (1/2)

Explanation:

Work done by P alone in one day = 1/6th of the total work done by Q alone in one day = 1/3(of that done by P in one day) = 1/3(1/6 of the total) = 1/18 of the total.

Work done by P and Q, working together in one day = 1/6 + 1/18  = 4/18 = 2/9 of the total
 
They would take 9/2 days = 4 (1/2) days to complete the work working together.

Q:

Two persons K and L can complete a piece of work in 30 days and 45 days respectively. If they work together, what part of the work will be completed in 3 days ?

A) 1/6 B) 1/3
C) 2/3 D) 1/18
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1/6

K's one day's work = 1/30
L's one day's work = 1/45
(K + L)'s one day's work = 1/30 + 1/45 = 1/18

The part of the work completed in 3 days = 3 (1/18) = 1/6.
