A) 8 hrs 45 min | B) 8 hrs 42 min |

C) 8 hrs | 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) = $8\frac{4}{7}$ = 8 hrs 34 min.

A) 2 days | B) 3 days |

C) 4 days | D) 5 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.

A) 145 | B) 165 |

C) 175 | D) 135 |

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 = 48/3.20 = 15

So total worked hours is = 15 + 160 = 175.

A) 12 days | B) 24 days |

C) 32 days | D) 16 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.

A) 15 days | B) 13 days |

C) 12 days | D) 10 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.

A) 4/3 days | B) 2 days |

C) 3/2 days | D) 4 days |

Explanation:

Let the total number of documents to be printed be 12.

The number of documents printed by P in 1 day = 4.

The number of documents printed by Q in 1 day = 3.

The number of documents printed by R in 1 day = 2.

Thus, the total number of documents that can be printed by all the machines working simultaneously in a single day = 9.

Therefore, the number of days taken to complete the whole work = 12/9 = 4/3 days.

A) 3 days | B) 2 days |

C) 6 days | D) 12 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.

A) 24.5 days | B) 26.6 days |

C) 25 days | D) 20 days |

Explanation:

Arun has completed $\frac{1}{3}$rd of the work in 8 days

Then he can complete the total work in

$\frac{1}{3}$ ---- 8

1 ---- ?

= 24 days

But given Akhil is only 60% as efficient as Arun

Akhil =$\frac{1}{24}\times \frac{60}{100}=\frac{1}{40}$

Akhil can complete the total work in 40 days

Now, remaining 2/3rd of work can be completed in

1 ------ 40

$\frac{2}{3}$ ------ ?

= 26.66 days.

A) 50 days | B) 48 days |

C) 47.5 days | D) 49 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.
