Solutions
S1. Ans.(a)
Sol.
1/a + 1/b = 1/12
1/b + 1/c = 1/15
1/c + 1/a = 1/20
2(1/a + 1/b + 1/c) = 1/5
⇒1/a + 1/b + 1/c = 1/10
1/c = 1/10 – (1/a + 1/b) = 1/10 – 1/12 = 1/60
⇒ time = 60 days
S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. B needs half the time
⇒ B needs 24 × 1/2 = 12 days
S3. Ans.(c)
Sol.
1/x + 1/2x = 1/24
⇒3/2x = 1/24
⇒ x = 36
Hence A requires 36 days.
S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Work done by 1 man in 1 day = 1/(3 × 43) = 1/129
Work done by 1 women in 1 day = 1/(5 × 43) = 1/215
Work done by 5 men and 6 women in 1 day
=5/129 + 6/215 = 1/15
Hence work will be over in 15 days
S5. Ans.(c)
S6. Ans.(d)
Sol.
30/m + 40/b = 1/21 …(i)
3×1/m = 5×1/b
⇒1/m = 5/3b
Substituting in (i)
We get 1/b = 1/1050 and 1/m = 1/630
Work done by 20 men and 4 boys in 1 day
=20/630 + 4/1050 = 13/315
Hence work will be over in 315/13 = 243/13 days
S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.
1/c = 2/x + 1/x = 3/x
1/a + 1/b + 1/c = 2/x + 1/x +3/x = 6/x = 1/7
⇒ x = 42
⇒ time = 42 days
S8. Ans.(a)
Sol.
3/a = 4/c and 5/b = 6/c
⇒3/4a = 1/c  and 5/6b = 1/c
⇒3/4a = 5/6b
but 1/a = 1/18
⇒1/b = 3/4 × 1/18 × 6/5 = 1/20
⇒ b needs 20 days to finish the work
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. A : B = 1/15 : 1/10 = 10 : 15
A’s share = 10/(10 + 15) × 2250 = 900
S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. A : B = 1/8 : 1/12 = 12 : 8
B’s share = 8/(12 + 8) × 200 = 80 Join India's largest learning destination
