Time and Work Question & Answers
In a public bathroom there are n taps 1,2,3...n. Tap1 and Tap2 take equal time to fill the tank while Tap3 takes half the time taken by Tap2 and Tap4 takes half the time taken by Tap3. Similarly each next number of tap takes half the time taken by previous number of Tap i.e, K-th Tap takes half the time taken by (K-1)th Tap.
If the 10th tap takes 2 hours to fill the tank alone then what is the ratio of efficiency of 8th tap and 12th tap, respectively?
|A) 4:1||B) 5:3|
|C) 16:1||D) 1:16|
Time taken by 8th tap = = 8 hours
and time taken by 12th tap = = hour
Ratio of time taken by 8th 8th tap and 12th tap = =16:1
Therefore, Ratio of efficiencies of 8th tap and 12th tap =1:16
