Answers & Solutions for SBI PO Time and Work Questions PDF:

Let the number of men initially working be x who could finished the work in 60 days
Now, (x+6) men can finish the work in 60 – 20 = 40 days
=> X x 60 = (x + 6) Ã— 40
=> 3x = 2x + 12
=> 3x âˆ’ 2x = x = 12
âˆ´ The number of men working = 12
=> Ans – (B)

Speed of boat = 20 km/hr and speed of current = 5 km/hr
Distance to travel = 100 km
Speed downstream (with the current) = 20 + 5 = 25 km/hr
=> Time taken = distance / speed
= 100 / 25 = 4 hours
=> Ans – (C)

Let M be the total number of mice killed, c be the number of cats, i be the number of days and e be the average number of mice killed by one cat in one day.
The number of mice killed is proportional to both the number of cats and the number of days.
=> m = ice
Substituting M=100, i = 100 and c = 100 into this equation, we find :
=> 100 = 100 Ã— 100 Ã— e
=> Ans – (D)
=> e = 1 / 100
Thus, substituting M = 4, c = 4, and e = 1 / 100 to get:
=> 4 = i Ã— 4 Ã— 1 /100
=> i = 100 days
=> Ans – (D)

According to the road map 18 km â‰¡ 1.5 cm
=> 72 km â‰¡ 15 / 8 Ã— 72
= 1.5 Ã— 4 = 6 cm
=> Ans – (B).

Let total work to be done = 60 units
A can complete the work in 30 days
=> A’s efficiency = 60 / 30 = 2 units/day
Similarly, (A+B)’s 1 day’s work = 60 / 12 = 5 units/day
=> B’s efficiency = 5 âˆ’ 2 = 3 units/day
âˆ´ B alone can do the work in = 60 / 3 = 20 days
=> Ans – (B)

Let total work to be done = 18 units
A and B can together do the work in 6 days
=> (A+B)’s 1 day’s work = 18 / 6 = 3 units/day
Similarly, A’s efficiency = 18 / 9 = 2 units/day
=> B’s efficiency = 3 âˆ’ 2 = 1 unit/day
âˆ´ Time taken by B alone = 18 / 1 18 days
=> Ans – (A)

Distance of gun from Ram = 6.64 km = 6640 m
Time = 20 seconds
=> Speed of sound = distance/time
= 6640 / 20 = 32 m/s
=> Ans – (C)

A does thrice the work of B in a given time.
Let B’s efficiency = x units/day
=> A’s efficiency = 3x units/day
Thus, (A+B)’s 1 day’s work = x+3x=4xx+3x=4x units/day
=> Total work done by them in 9 days = 4x \times 9=36x4xÃ—9=36x units
âˆ´ Time taken by A alone to finish the work = 36x / 3x = 12days
=> Ans – (D)
