5. None of these

The ratio of efficiency of Arun and Chitra = 5:3

The ratio of number of days taken by Arun and Chitra = 3 : 5

The ratio of number of days taken by Chitra and Banu = 2:3

Ratio of number of days taken by Arun : Chitra : Banu = 6:10:15

According to the question,

= > Chitra – Arun = 8 days

= > 10โs โ 6โs = 8

= > 4โs = 8

= > 1โs = 2

Number of days taken to finish the whole work,

= > Arun = 12 days, Chitra = 20 days, Banu = 30 days

Work done by Banu and Chitra in two days,

= > (2/20) + (2/30) = (1/10) + (1/15) = 25/(10*15) = (1/6)

Rest of the work = 5/6

The number of days taken by Arun to finish the remaining work is,

Number of days = (5/6)*12= 10 days

1/x + 1/2x = 1/20 + 1/30

3/2x = 1/12

X = 18

Number of days taken by Arun = 18 days

Efficiency (A : B) =150:100= 3 : 2

Then days 2:3

B takes 21 days to do the work. Then A takes 14 days to do the work.

Total units of work = 42(LCM of 14,21)

A = 3 unit

B = 2 unit

A and B worked for 5days ==>5*(3+2) = 25 unit

Remaining = (42-25) =17 unit

Then A did that 17 unit alone in 17/3= 5 2/3 days.

Let the no of men be x,

A piece of work has to be completed in 50 days

According to the question,

Menย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  daysย  work

Xย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  30ย ย ย ย ย  (1/2)

(x +20)ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  20ย ย ย ย ย  (1/2)

Work = men * days

= > 30x/(1/2) = (x + 20)*20/(1/2)

= > 30x = (x + 20)*20

= > 30x = 20x + 400

= > 10x = 400

= > x = 40 men

Let, x workers can do the work in 20 days.

Then no of workers require to finish it in 30 days is 20x / 30

20x/30 = (x โ 20)

10x = 600

x = 60

So, the no of workers required to finished it in 50 days = (60 * 20) / 50 = 24 workers.

A = 6 days

B = 8 days

C = (1/3) โ (1/8 + 1/6) = 1/24

So, C alone can complete the work in 24 days.

Then the ratio 1/6 : 1/8 : 1/24 = 4 : 3 : 1

Now total amount Rs. 4000

8โs = 4000

1โs = 500

The amount paid to C is Rs 500.

Ram and Ravi worked together

1/20+1/15 = (3+4)/60= 7/60

They work for 6 days so 7/60*6 = 7/10

Remaining work 3/10 done by Ram and Rohit.

Ram and Rohit finished it in 4days

(3/10)*(Ram + Rohit)โs whole work = 4

(Ram + Rohit)โs whole work = 40/3

Rohitโs one day work = (3/40) โ (1/20) = 1/40

Rohit alone can complete the work in 40 days

1/8 + 1/12 + 1/C = ยผ

1/C = (1/4) โ (1/8 + 1/12)

(1/C) = (1/4) โ (5/24) = 1/24

We get C = 24 days

Now efficiency of A, B and C are in the ratio of = 1/8 :1/12 : 1/24 = 3 : 2 : 1

6โs = 1200

1โs = 200

So share of C = Rs. 200

(1/20 + 1/25)*x + 12/25 = 1

(1/20 + 1/25)*x = 1 โ (12/25)

(1/20 + 1/25)*x = 13/25

9x/100 = 13/25

We will get x = 52/9

X = 5 7/9 days

Q is 25 percent more efficient than P

Efficiency ratio Q : P = 5 : 4

Days ratio Q : P = 4 : 5

P can do a piece of work in 20 days

5โs = 20 = > 1โs = 4

So Q can complete the work in 16 days

(1/20 + 1/16)*x = ยฝ

[36/(20*16)]*x = 1/2

X = 40/9 days
