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

Q:

6 boys and 8 girls can do job in 10 days , 26 boys & 48 women do work in 2 days. Find time taken by 15 boys and 20 girls to do same work ?

A) 2 days B) 3 days
C) 4 days D) 5 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4 days

Explanation:

One day work of 6 boys and 8 girls is given as 6b + 8g = 1/10 -------->(I)
One day work of 26 boys and 48 women is given as 26b + 48w = 1/2 -------->(II)

Divide both sides by 2 in (I) and then multiply both sides by 5
Now we get
15b + 20g = 1/4.
Therefore, 15 boys and 20 girls can do the same work in 4 days.

Q:

In a regular week, there are 5 working days and for each day, the working hours are 8. A man gets Rs. 2.40 per hour for regular work and Rs. 3.20 per hours for overtime. If he earns Rs. 432 in 4 weeks, then how many hours does he work for ?

A) 145 B) 165
C) 175 D) 135
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 175

Explanation:

Given that
working days = 5;
working hours = 8;
A man get rupess per hour is Rs.2.40;
So in one day the man get total rupees is 2.40 x 8 = 19.2
So in 5 days week the man get total rupees is 19.2 x 5 = 96
So in 4 week the man get total rupees is 96 x 4 = 384
So the man worked for = 160hours in 4 weeks
But given that the man earned Rs.432
Hence remaning money is (432-384 = 48)which is earn by doing overtime work
Overtime hours is = 48/3.20 = 15
So total worked hours is = 15 + 160 = 175.

Q:

A is 3 times faster than B. If A can finish a work 32 days less than that of B, find the number of days need to finish the work if both are working together?

A) 12 days B) 24 days
C) 32 days D) 16 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 12 days

Explanation:

It is given that efficiency ratio =3:1, so time ratio will be 1:3 (since work is same)

also given that time diff = 32 days. ratio difference = 3-1 =2

2 ratio = 32 days

1 ratio = 16 days. So A will alone finish it in 16 days and B will finish it in 16*3 = 48 days.

Total work LCM of 16 and 48 = 48. Total time = Total work/Total efficiency

ie; 48/4= 12 days....

Q:

K, L and M can do a piece of work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. In how many days can K do the total work if he is assisted by L and M on every third day ?

A) 15 days B) 13 days
C) 12 days D) 10 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 15 days

Explanation:

In one day work done by K = 1/20
Work done by K in 2 days = 1/10
Work done by K,L,M on 3rd day =1/20 + 1/30 + 1/60 = 1/10
Therefore, workdone in 3 days is = 1/10 + 1/10 = 1/5
1/5th of the work will be completed at the end of 3 days.
The remaining work = 1 - 1/5 = 4/5
1/5 of work is completed in 3 days
Total work wiil be done in 3 x 5 = 15 days.
