__Answers :-__**1. (c) 22 days**

Let the total work be 200 work

Efficiency of

A = 200/50 = 4 work/day

B = 200/40 = 5 work/day

A+B’s efficiency = 9/day

A+B’s 10 days work = 9*10 = 90

Remaining work = 200-90 = 110

Time taken by B alone to finish the remaining wrk =
110/5 = 22days

**2. 6(2/3) days**

<i> Solution:- M1D1H1E1W2 = M2D2H2E2W1 (From
MDH Rule)

Efficinecy of first grp : 2nd grp = 2*2 :4*1 = 1:1

Now, D2 = M1D1H1E1W2 / M2H2E2W1

D2 = 30*4*10*1*2 / 45*8*1*1

D2 = 20/3 = 6(2/3) days

**3. (c) 9 Hours**

Let A+B together takes X hours

A will take X+27 hrs

B will take X+3 hrs

Let the total work be (X+27)(X+3)

Efficiency of A= X+3

B = X+27

Total efficiency = 2X+30

Time working together = (X+27)(X+3) / 2X+30 = X

==> X^2 +30X + 81 = 2X^2 + 30X

or, X^2 = 81 or X= 9 hrs (neglecting –Ve time )

**4.**

**(b) 16, 48 and 24 days respectively**

Let the total work be 48

Efficiency of

A+B = 4/day…… (i)

B+C = 3/day……..(ii)

Now, A works for 5 days, B works for 7 days and C
works for 13 days and completes the total work of 48.

This can be rewritten as

A+B for 5 days + B+C for 2 days + C for 11 days
completes the total work of 48

Now, A+B’s 5 days work = 20

B+C’s 2 days work = 6

Therefore, 20+6+ C’s 11 days work = 48

C’s 11 days work =
48-26 = 22

C’s efficiency = 2/day.. (iii)

From (i),(ii),(iii)

C’s efficiency = 2

B’s Efficiency = 1

A’s efficiency = 3

Time taken by

A= 16 days, B= 48 days, and C= 24 days

**5. (e) None of these (6:30PM)**

Let the total work be 24

Efficiency of Ganga = 24/8 = 3/hr

Efficiency of Jamuna= 24/12 = 2/hr

They work alternately starting from Ganga

First 2 hrs work = 3+2 = 5

First 8 hrs work = 20

Remaining = 24-20 = 4

9th hr work to be done by Ganga = 3

Remaining work = 4-3 = 1 to be done by Jamuna in
1/2 hr.

Total time = 8+1+(1/2) hrs = 9.5 hrs or 9 Hr 30
minutes

So work will be completed by 9AM + 9 hrs 30 minutes
= 18 hrs 30 minutes or 6:30 PM

**6. (d) 27 Days**

Let the total work be 108 (Common Multiple of 12,36
and 54)

Efficiency of A+B+C =108/12= 9,

of A alone = 108/36 = 3 and

of B alone = 108/54 = 2

Therefore of C alone = 9-(3+2) = 4

Time taken by C = 108/4 = 27 days

**7. (a) 9 Days**

Let the total work be 36 ( Can take any value
Preferably Common Multiple )

Efficiency of

A+B+C = 36/4 = 9

A alone= 36/12 = 3

B alone = 36/18 = 2

C alone = A+B+C- (A+B) = 9-(3+2) = 4

Time taken by C alone = 36/4 = 9 days

**8. (e) None of these (20 days)**

Let the total work be 140

Efficiency of A = 4

Efficiency of B = 5

A works for 10 days = 4*10 = 40

Remaining work = 140-40 = 100 to be done by B

B will do it in 100/5 = 20 days

**9. (b) 15 days**

Let the total work be 72

Efficiency of A = 3 and Of B = 4

A’s 4 days work = 3*4 = 12 remaining work = 72 -12
= 60

Work completed by B in 60/4 = 15 days

**10. (a) 9 days**

Let the total work be 24

Efficiency of A+B = 4

Efficiency of B = 3

Efficiency of A = 1 as A+B = 4 and B= 3

Work done by B in 5 day = 3*5 = 15

Remaining work = 24-15 = 9

Remaining work to be done by A in 9/1 = 9 days

**11. (c) 14 days**

Let the total work be 60

Efficiency of A = 3 and of B = 2

Efficiency of A+B = 3+2 = 5

Suppose B never left the work then if the time
taken remains same then work done by B in those 5 days will be added to
original work.

Therefore, Now, works become = 60 + B’s 5 days work
= 60+10 = 70

Time taken = 70/5 = 14 days

**Other way**:- B leaves the work 5 days before means A did work alone for that 5 days

Work Done by A in that 5 day = 5/20 = 1/4

Remaining work = 3/4

To complete the work together A+B would have
taken 1/ (1/20+ 1/30) = 600/50 = 12
days

3/4th of the work together will be completed in
12*3/4 = 9 days

Total time = 5+9 = 14 days
