Q:

Adam and Smith are working on a project. Adam takes 6 hrs to type 36 pages on a computer, while Smith takes 5 hrs to type 40 pages. How much time will they take, working together on two different computers to type a project of 120 pages?

A) 8 hrs 45 min B) 8 hrs 42 min
C) 8 hrs D) 8 hrs 34 min

Answer:   D) 8 hrs 34 min



Explanation:

Number of pages typed by Adam in 1 hour = 36/6 = 6
Number of pages typed by Smith in 1 hour = 40/5 = 8
Number of pages typed by both in 1 hour = (6 + 8) = 14
Time taken by both to type 110 pages = (120 * 1/14) = 847 = 8 hrs 34 min.

Q:

Twelve children take sixteen days to complete a work which can be completed by 8 adults in 12 days. After working for 3 days, sixteen adults left and six adults and four children joined them. How many days will they take to complete the remaining work ?

A) 3 days B) 2 days
C) 6 days D) 12 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 6 days

Explanation:

From the given data,

12 children 16 days work,
One child’s one day work = 1/192.


8 adults 12 days work,
One adult’s one day’s work = 1/96.


Work done in 3 days = ((1/96) x 16 x 3) = 1/2


Remaining work = 1 – 1/2 = 1/2


(6 adults+ 4 children)’s 1 day’s work = 6/96 + 4/192 = 1/12

1/12 work is done by them in 1 day.

1/2 work is done by them in 12 x (1/2) = 6 days.

Q:

50 men can build a tank in 40days, but though they begin the work together, 5 men quit every ten days. The time needed to build the tank is ?

A) 50 days B) 48 days
C) 47.5 days D) 49 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 50 days

Explanation:

50 men can build a tank in 40 days 

Assume 1 man does 1 unit of work in 1 day

Then the total work is 50×40 = 2000 units

 

50 men work in the first 10 days and completes 50×10 = 500 units of work

45 men work in the next 10 days and completes 45×10 = 450 units of work

40 men work in the next 10 days and completes 40×10 = 400 units of work

35 men work in the next 10 days and completes 35×10 = 350 units of work

So far 500 + 450 + 400 + 350 = 1700 units of work is completed and

 

Remaining work is 2000 - 1700 = 300 units

 

30 men work in the next 10 days. In each day, they does 30 units of work.

 

Therefore, additional days required = 300/30 =10

 

Thus, total 10+10+10+10+10 = 50 days required.

A)3449 days   

B)12449 days 

C)4349 days    

D)41249 days

A) Option A B) Option B
C) Option C D) Option D
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Option C

Explanation:

Raghu can complete the work in (12 x 9)hrs = 108 hrs.

 

 Arun can complete the work in (8 x 11)hrs = 88 hrs.

 

Raghu's 1 hrs work = 1/108 and Arun's 1 hrs work = 1/88

 

(Raghu + Arun)'s 1 hrs work = 1108+188=492376

 
So, both Raghu and Arun will finish the work in 237649 hrs

Number of days of 12 hours each=237649×112 = 19849=4349 days
