e)Â 42

Let us first get a relation between the workÂ done by a man, woman and a child.

1 man can do a work in 4*2 = 8 days

1 woman can do the same work in 4*4 = 16 days

1 child can do the same work in 4*5 = 20 days

=> 1 man = 2.5 child and 1.25 woman = 0.8 child

2 men + 4 women + 10 children = 5 + 5 + 10 = 20 children

1 child takes 20 days to complete a work => 20 children will take 1 day to complete the same work.

Let the work completed by A in one day = $\frac{1}{A}$
Let the work completed by B in one day = $\frac{1}{B}$
Let the work completed by C in one day = $\frac{1}{C}$
$\frac{1}{A}$ +Â $\frac{1}{B}$ =Â $\frac{1}{20}$
$\frac{1}{B}$ +Â $\frac{1}{C}$ =Â $\frac{1}{30}$
$\frac{1}{A}$ +Â $\frac{1}{C}$ =Â $\frac{1}{40}$
Solving the above equations we get $\frac{1}{A}$Â = $\frac{1}{24}$
A = 24
Similarly B = 120 and C = 60

A did the work for 20 days, B did the work for (20 + 12 + 38) = 60 days, C did the work for 28 days.

Let C alone can complete the work in x days.

Fraction of work did by A + Fraction of work did by B + Fraction of work did by C = 1

Or 20/80+60/120+28/x=1

Or x=28Ã—4 = 112 days

C alone can complete the work in 112 days

Let, amit’s speed be x and sujit’s speed be y. y=.8x
They work for total 8*5= 40 hours
x+y=(576000)/40
1.8x=14400
x=8000

Amit speed is 8000 depressions/hr

56 workers in 14 days => 1 worker in 56*14 days

8 days => $\frac{56*14}{8}$ = 98 workers.

Extra workers = 98 – 56 = 42

6 women complete a piece of work in 3 days.

Hence, one woman can complete $\frac{1}{18}$ piece of work in one day.

3 women and 18 children take 2 days to complete the work.

3 women in 2 days complete $3*2*\frac{1}{18}=\frac{1}{3}$

Hence, in two days 18 children complete $1-\frac{1}{3}=\frac{2}{3}$ of the work.

So, amount of work done by 1 child in a day is $\frac{2}{3}*\frac{1}{36}=\frac{1}{54}$

So, 9 children complete $9*\frac{1}{54}=\frac{1}{6}$ part of the work in a day.

Hence, the number of daysÂ in which 9 children alone complete the work is $6$

Let the speed of work done by A, B and C be a, b and c.
Now, b=.5c, a=.5b=.25c
c does work in 7 days. It’s speed will be W/7. A’s speed will be .25W/7 and B’s speed will be .5W/7
Their combined speed is 1.75W/7
Time taken by them to complete the work = $\frac{W}{(1.75W/7)}$ = $\frac{7}{1.75}$= 4
Hence, together they will complete the work in 4 days.
Therefore, option C is correct.

10 women can complete the work in 8 days. So, number of hours required for 1 woman to complete the work = 80

Number of hours required by one child to complete the work = 120

So, 80W = 120C => 1W = 1.5C

6 women + 3 children = 9 children + 3 children = 12 children

So, 12 children take 10 days to complete the work.

Let the amount work done by a woman in a day be W.
So, the amount of work done by a man in a day is W/2.
And the amount of work done by a child in a day is W/4
So, the amount of work done by 3 men, 4 women and six children in a day is 3W/2 + 4W + 6W/4 = 7W.

Hence, 7 women can complete this work in 7 days. So, the correct answer is option (b)

12 men can complete the work in $(3\times8 = 24)$ days
Work done by 12 men in 1 day = $\frac{1}{24}$
Work done by 1 man in 1 day = $\frac{1}{24\times12}$
Work done by 16 men in 1 day = $16 \times(\frac{1}{24\times12}) = \frac{1}{18}$
Hence, 16 men will take 18 days to finish the work.

Remaining work = $\frac{1}{4}$
Remaining time = 8 days
Work done by 36 persons in 1 day = $\frac{1}{40}$
Work done by 1 person in 1 day = $\frac{1}{36 \times 40}$
Let the number of persons required to finish the remaining work be ‘x’
$8 \times x \times \frac{1}{36\times40} = \frac{1}{4}$
$x = 45$
Number of additional persons = 45 – 36 = 9

Time taken by 24 children is twice the time taken by 16 women to finish the same project.
Hence, 24 children’s work can be completed by 8 women.
Work done by 1 woman in 1 day = $\frac{1}{28\times 8}$
Work done by 28 women and 24 children in 1 day = Work done by (28+8 = 36) women in 1 day
= $\frac{36}{28 \times 8}$
= $\frac{9}{56}$
$\therefore$ Number of days required by them = $\frac{56}{9} = 6 \frac{2}{9}$

2 women take 16 days to do one item. Therefore each woman contributed 1/32th of the item per day.

4 women working for 4 days = 16/32th part of the item = 1/2 part of the item

12 children therefore make 1/2 part of the work in 4 days

Therefore 12 children can do 1/8th part in day

Therefore 1 child can do 1/96th part of item per day

Therefore 4 children can do 4/96th part of item per day

Hence 4 children will take 96/4 = 24 days to finish the work.

Let the total work be W
Since two men or six women or four boys can finish a work in 99 days
So the amount of work done by one man in a day = $\frac{W}{198}$
Amount of work done by one woman in a day = $\frac{W}{594}$
Amount of work done by one boy in a day = $\frac{W}{396}$
So total work done by one man, one woman and one boy in a day = $\frac{W}{198}$ +$\frac{W}{594}$ + $\frac{W}{396}$ = $\frac{11W}{1188}$
Thus number of days that one man, one woman and one boy together take to finish the same work = $\frac{W}{ \frac{11W}{1188}}$
= 108 days

Rate of doing work by A and B is $\frac{1}{A}$ and $\frac{1}{B}$
$\frac{1}{A}$ = $\frac{3}{B}$
In 4 days A would have completed $\frac{4}{A}$ or $\frac{12}{B}$ amount of work
In 15 days B would have completed $\frac{15}{B}$ amount of work
$\frac{12}{B} + \frac{15}{B} = \frac{3}{4}$
$\frac{27}{B} = \frac{3}{4}$
$\frac{1}{B} = \frac{1}{36}$
