**Answers:**

**1). Answer d**

C can empty the tank in = (21/70)*100= 30 hours

Total units of work= 300

A’s one hour work = 300/20 = 15 units

B’s one hour work = 300/25 = 12 units

C’s capacity to empty in one hour = 300/30 = 10 units

When three pipes are opened simultaneously then in one hour they will fill,

(15+12-10) = 17 units

In 12 hours they will fill = 17*12= 204 units

After 12hrs, C will be closed

Time taken by A& B to fill the remaining tank = 96/27 = 3 15/27 = 3 5/9 hours

Total time will be = 12 + 3 5/9 = 15 5/9 hours

**2). Answer a**

C can empty the tank in =18/60*100= 30 hours

Total units of work= 360

A’s one hour work= 360/18= 20units

B’s one hour work = 360/24= 15 units

C’s capacity to empty in one hour= 360/30= 12 units

When three pipes are opened simultaneously then in one hour they will

(20+15-12)=23 units

In 12 hours they will fill= 23*12= 276 units

After 12 hr, C will be closed

Time taken by A & B to fill the remaining tank = 84/35= 2 2/5 hours

Total time = 12 + 2 2/5 = 14 2/5 hours

**3). Answer b**

Three pipes A, B and C can fill a tank in 8 hours.

A, B and C’s 1 hour work=1/10

A, B and C’s 3 hour work= 3/10

Remaining work= 1 – (3/10) = 7/10

The remaining part will be filled by A and B in 14 hours. Then,

= > (7/10) *(A+B) = 14

= > (A+B)’s whole work= 14*(10/7) = 20 hr

(A+B)’s 1 hour work= 1/20

A, B and C’s 1 hour work = 1/10

C’s 1 hour work= (A+B+C) – (A+B)

= > (1/10) – (1/20)

= > 1/20

C can fill the tank in **20 hours.**

**4). Answer c**

Total units of work= 90

A’s one hour work = 9

B’s one hour work = 6

C’s one hour work = 5

Work done by three pipes in 2 hours = 15 + 14 = 29 units

Work done in 6 hours= 29*3 = 87 units

Remaining will be done by pipe A and B = 3/15 = 1/5 hours

Total time required= 6 1/5 hours = 6 hours 12 mins

**5). Answer d**

Let capacity of tank = 90 lit (LCM of 10, 15, 18)

A fills 90/10 = 9 liter/hour

B fills 90/15 = 6 liter/hour

C empties 90/18 = 5 liter/hour

Till 10 am 9*3 + 6*1.5 = 27 + 9 = 36 liters

Remaining volume to be filled =90 – 36 = 54 liters

After 10 am, when all pipes are opened. 9 + 6 – 5= 10 liters/hr is filled.

Required time = 54/10 = 5 4/10 = 5 2/5 hour = 5 hour 24 min

**6). Answer c**

(x-3)/12 + (x-4)/16 + x/24 =1

(4x – 12 + 3x – 12 + 2x)/48 = 1

9x – 24 = 48

9x = 72

X = 8 min

**7). Answer a**

Let total capacity = 75 litres (LCM of 15 and 25)

A = 5 litres/min

B = 3 litres/min

A+B fill 75 litres

A can fill 5*5 = 25 litres in 5 min

But B was closed 5 min before the tank is filled. So A+B together filled (75-25) = 50 litres

50 litres can be filled by A + B in,

= > (50/8) = 6 1/4

Total time = 6 1/4 + 5 = 11 ¼ min

**8). Answer d**

B is 5/4 times as efficient as A. So,

A and B’s time =>5 : 4

A can fill the 3/5 of the tank in 15 min

=> (3/5) * work = 15 min

=> Whole work = 25 min

A takes 25 min to fill the tank, So, B takes,

=> 5’s =25

=>1’s = 5

B can fill the tank in, 20 min

B can fill the tank independently for 10 min only.

B’s 10 min work = 10/20 = 1/2

Remaining = 1- 1/2 = ½

Half of the tank will remain incomplete.

**9). Answer b**

(x – 4)/15 + (x – 5)/18 + x/20 =1

(12x – 48 +10x – 50 + 9x)/180 =1

31x – 98 = 180

31x = 278

X = 278/31 = 8 30/31 min

**10). Answer c**

If all the pipes are opened simultaneously, then in,

= > (1/15) + (1/18) – (1/20)

= > (12 + 10 – 9)/180

= > 13/180

Required hours = 180/13 = 13 11/13 hours
