Q:

# Two pipes A and B can fill a tank in 24 hours and $\inline \frac{120}{7}$ hours respectively. Harihar opened the pipes A and B to fill an empty tank and some times later he closed the taps A and B , when the tank was supposed to be full. After that it was found that the tank was emptied in 2.5 hours because an outlet pipe "C" connected to the tank was open from the beginning. If Harihar closed the pipe C instead of closing pipes A and B the remaining tank would have been filled in :

 A) 2 hours B) 8 hours C) 6 hours D) 4 hours

Explanation:

Efficiency of Inlet pipe A = 4.16%                              $\inline (\frac{100}{24})$

Efficiency of Inlet pipe B = 5.83%                              $\inline (\frac{100}{120/7})$

$\inline \therefore$ Efficiency of A and B together = 100 %

Now, if the efficiency of outlet pipe be x% then in 10 hours the capacity of tank which will be filled = 10 *  (10 - x)

Now, since this amount of water is being emptied by C at x% per hour, then

$\inline \frac{10\times (10-x)}{x}=2.5 \: hours \Rightarrow$ x = 8%

Therefore, in 10 hours 20% tank is filled only. Hence, the remaining 80% of the  capacity will be filled by pipes A and B  in 80/10 = 8 hours

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.

Q:

4 men can repair a road in 7 hours. How many men are required to repair the road in 2 hours ?

 A) 17 men B) 14 men C) 13 men D) 16 men

Explanation:

M x T / W = Constant
where, M= Men (no. of men)
T= Time taken
So, here we apply
M1 x T1/ W1 = M2 x T2 / W2
Given that, M1 = 4 men, T1 = 7 hours ; T2 = 2 hours, we have to find M2 =?
Note that here, W1 = W2 = 1 road, ie. equal work load.
Clearly, substituting in the above equation we get, M2 = 14 men.

 A) 45 metric tonnes B) 47 metric tonnes C) 55 metric tonnes D) 34 metric tonnes
