Q:

A) 17 men | B) 14 men |

C) 13 men | D) 16 men |

Answer: B) 14 men

Explanation:

Explanation:

M x T / W = Constant

where, M= Men (no. of men)

T= Time taken

W= Work load

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.
