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) 1/7 min | B) 7/2 min |

C) 5/7 min | D) 7/5 min |

Explanation:

Time taken to fill 2/7 = 1

Then to fill full 1 = ?

? = 1/(2/7) = 7/2 minutes.

A) 101 men | B) 112 men |

C) 102 men | D) 120 men |

Explanation:

From the above formula i.e (m1 x t1/w1) = (m2 x t2/w2)

so, [(34 x 8 x 9)/(2/5)] = [(M x 6 x 9)/(3/5)]

so, M = 136 men

Number of men to be added to finish the work = 136-34 = 102 men.

A) 36 | B) 61 |

C) 48 | D) 54 |

A) 10 2/3 days | B) 13 1/5 days |

C) 12 2/3 days | D) 11 5/7 days |

Explanation:

3/15 + 4/16 + x/24 = 1

$\Rightarrow x=13\frac{1}{5}$

A) 8 hrs | B) 12 hrs |

C) 6 hrs | D) 4 hrs |

Explanation:

Suppose A, B and C take x, x/2 and x/3 respectively to finish the work.

Then, (1/x + 2/x + 3/x) = 1/2

=> 6/x = 1/2 => x = 12

So, B takes 6 hours to finish the work.

A) 87.5 | B) 89 |

C) 91.5 | D) 93.5 |

Explanation:

We have M1 D1 H1 / W1 = M2 D2 H2 / W2 (Variation rule)

(60 x 30 x 8)/ 150 = (35 x D2 x 6) / 200

D2 = (60 x 30 x 8 x 200) / (150 x 35 x 6) => D2 = 91.42 days =~ 91.5 days.

A) 8.7 hrs | B) 5.2 hrs |

C) 5 hrs | D) 7.5 hrs |

Explanation:

Ratio of times taken by A and B = 160 : 100

A can do the work in 12 days

Let B can do the work in "D" days

=> 160:100 = 12 : D

=> D = 12 x 100/160 = 7.5 hrs

A) Total work | B) One-fourth work |

C) Half work | D) Two-third work |

Explanation:

A can do the work = 18 days

B can do the work = 18/2 = 9 days

(A + B)'s 1 day work = 1/18 + 1/9 = 1/6

=> In 3 days = 3x1/6 = 1/2 work is completed.
