Q:

A contractor undertook to complete a piece of work in 120 Days and employed 140 men upon it. At the end of 66 days only half of the work was done,so he put on 25 extra men. By how much time did he exceed the specific time ?

 A) 2 days B) 3 days C) 4 days D) 5 days

Explanation:

work done=total number of person x number of days;
half of work done = 140 x 66;
For half of remaining work 25 extra men are added.
Therefore, total men for half work remaining = 140 + 25 = 165;
Let 2nd half work will be completed in K days;
140 x 66 = 165 x K
K = 122;
Hence, extra days => 122-120 = 2days.

Q:

A,B,C together can do a piece of work in 10 days.All the three started workingat it together and after 4 days,A left.Then,B and C together completed the work in 10 more days.In how many days can complete a work alone ?

 A) 25 B) 24 C) 23 D) 21

Explanation:

(A+B+C) do 1 work in 10 days.
So (A+B+C)'s 1 day work=1/10 and as they work together for 4 days so workdone by them in 4 days=4/10=2/5
Remaining work=1-2/5=3/5
(B+C) take 10 more days to complete 3/5 work.
So( B+C)'s 1 day work=3/50
Now A'S 1 day work=(A+B+C)'s 1 day work-(B+C)'s 1 day work=1/10-3/50=1/25
A does 1/25 work in in 1 day
Therefore 1 work in 25 days.

Q:

A can write 32 pages in 6 hours and B can write 40 pages in 5 hours. If they write together, in how many hours they can write 110 pages ?

 A) 7 hrs B) 6 hrs 10 min C) 5 hrs 25min D) 8 hrs 15 min

Explanation:

A can write in 1hour = 32/6 pages
similarly
B in 1 hour = 40/5 pages

Together (A+B) in 1 hour = 32/6 + 40/5 = 40/3
so,
A+B write 40/3 pages in 1 hour
A+B write 110 pages in (3/40) x 110 Hours = 8 hours 15 min.

Q:

There is sufficient salary to give K for 10 days and L for 15 days. Then how many days will the money last if both has to be given the salary ?

 A) 6 days B) 12 days C) 4 days D) 9 days

Explanation:

K's 1 day's salary = 1/10
L's 1 day's salary = 1/15
Together their 1 day's salary = 1/10 + 1/15
= 3/30 + 2/30
= 5/30
= 1/6
So the money will be
enough for paying them both for 6 days.
