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 = = 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.

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 rd of the work in 8 days

Then he can complete the total work in

---- 8

1 ---- ?

= 24 days

But given Akhil is only 60% as efficient as Arun

Akhil =

Akhil can complete the total work in 40 days

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

1 ------ 40

------ ? 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 =

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