Q:

A) 17 days | B) 11 days |

C) 15 days | D) 16 days |

Answer: C) 15 days

Explanation:

Explanation:

We know that Time is inversely proportional to Efficiency

Here given time ratio of P & P+Q as

P/P+Q = 150/100 = 3:2

Efficiency ratio of P & Q as

P:Q = 2:1 ....(1)

Given Efficiency ratio of Q & R as

Q:R = 3:1 ....(2)

From (1) & (2), we get

P:Q:R = 6:3:1

P alone can finish the work in

22.5(3+1)/6 = 15 days.
