c) 4 ¾ days

d) 4 1/5 days

e) None of these

Let initially the no of men be x,

A piece of work has to be completed in 60 days

According to the question,

Men            days  work

X                 40      (1/2)

(x + 30)      20      (1/2)

Work = men * days

= > 40x/(1/2) = (x + 30)*20/(1/2)

= > 40x = (x + 30)*20

= > 40x = 20x + 600

= > 20x = 600

= > x = 30 men

The ratio of efficiency of Ajay and Sneha = 6: 5

The ratio of number of days taken by Ajay and Sneha = 5: 6

The ratio of number of days taken by Prabha and Sneha = 3: 2

Ratio of number of days taken by Ajay: Sneha: Prabha = 5: 6: 9

According to the question,

= > Sneha – Ajay = 8 days

= > 6’s – 5’s = 3

= > 1’s = 3

Number of days taken to finish the whole work,

= > Ajay = 15 days, Sneha = 18 days, Prabha = 27 days

Work done by Prabha and Sneha in one day,

= > (1/18) + (1/27) = 45/(18*27) = 5/54

Prabha and Sneha’s two day work

= > (5/54)*3 = 5/18

Rest of the work = 13/18

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

Number of days = (13/18)*15 = 65/6 = 10 5/6 days

Ragu and Rajesh worked together

1/12 + 1/15 = (12 + 15)/(12*15) = 3/20

Ragu and Rajesh’s 5 days work = (3/20)*5 = (3/4)

Remaining work 1/4 done by Ragu and Rohit

Ragu and Rohit finished it in 4 days

(1/4)*(Ragu + Rohit)’s whole work = 2

(Ragu + Rohit)’s whole work = 8

Rohit’s one day work = (1/8) – (1/12) = 1/24

Rohit alone can complete the work in 24 days

1/12 + 1/18 + 1/C = 1/6

1/C = (1/6) – (1/12 + 1/18)

(1/C) = (1/6) – (5/36) = 1/36

We get, C = 36 days

Now efficiency of A, B and C are in the ratio of = 1/12: 1/18: 1/36 = 3: 2: 1

6’s = 3240

1’s = 540

The share of C = Rs. 540

(1/10 + 1/15)*x + 8/15 = 1

(1/10 + 1/15)*x = 1 – (8/15)

(1/10 + 1/15)*x = 7/15

x/6 = 7/15

x = 14/5

X = 2 4/5 days

Time required by Q and R to complete the whole work

= 5*14/2= 35 days

Time taken by P, Q and R= 20 days

Total units of work= 140 units

Q and R one day work= 4 units

P, Q and R one day work= 7 units

P’s one day work= 7-4= 3 units

Units of work done by P = 3*140/5= 84 units

Required value of x = 84/3 = 28 days

Time taken by P= 8*3/2= 12 days

Q= 7*3= 21 days

R= 8*5/4= 10 days

Total units of work = 420 units

P’s one day work= 35 units

Q’s one day work= 20 units

R’s one day work= 42 units

Work done in 3 days= 97*3= 291 units

Time required by P to complete the remaining work

= > (420-291)/35 = 129/35 days

Total units of work= 20*16= 320 units

Work done in 5 days= 20*5= 100 units

Remaining work= 320 -100= 220 units

Let the number of men left after 5 days be x

So,

20-x men completed the remaining 220 units in 55/3 days

So,

(20-x)*55/3= 220

1100- 55x= 660

55x= 440

X= 8 men

Total work = 20*25 = 500 work

5 days work = 20*5 = 100 work

Remaining work = 500 – 100 = 400

According to the question,

= > 400/25 = 16 days

The total no of days = 16 + 5 = 21 days

The work gets completed in 21 days

Efficiency ratio of Q: P = 150: 100 = 3: 2

Days ratio of Q: P = 2: 3

P can do a piece of work in 14 days

2’s = 14 = > 1’s = 7

So P can complete the work in 21 days

(1/14 + 1/21)*x = ½

[35/(14*21)]*x = 1/2

X = 21/5 = 4 1/5 days
