**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

12 men can finish the project in 20 days.

=> 1 day work of 1 man = $\frac{1}{12 \times 20} = \frac{1}{240}$

Similarly, => 1 day work of 1 woman = $\frac{1}{18 \times 16} = \frac{1}{288}$

=> 1 day work of 1 children = $\frac{1}{24 \times 18} = \frac{1}{432}$

8 women and 16 children worked for 9 days

=> Work done in 9 days = $9 \times (8 \times \frac{1}{288}) + (16 \times \frac{1}{432})$

= $9 \times (\frac{1}{36} + \frac{1}{27}) = 9 \times \frac{7}{108}$

= $\frac{7}{12}$

=> Work left = $1 – \frac{7}{12} = \frac{5}{12}$

$\therefore$ Number of days taken by 10 men to complete the remaining work

= $\frac{\frac{10}{240}}{\frac{5}{12}} = \frac{1}{24} \times \frac{12}{5} = \frac{1}{10}$

Thus, 10 men will complete the remaining the work in 10 days.

**2) Answer (C)**

Let work done by 1 man be $x$ and 1 woman be $y$

Now, 16 men and 12 women complete work in 8 days.

=> $16x + 12y = \frac{1}{8}$ ———Eqn(i)

Also, $20x = \frac{1}{16}$

=> $16x = \frac{1}{20}$

Putting it in eqn(i), we get :

=> $\frac{1}{20} + 12y = \frac{1}{8}$

=> $12y = \frac{1}{8} – \frac{1}{20} = \frac{3}{40}$

=> $y = \frac{3}{40 \times 12} = \frac{1}{160}$

Thus, 16 women can complete the work in = $16 \times \frac{1}{160} = \frac{1}{10}$

$\therefore$ 16 women can complete the work in 10 days.

**3) Answer (C)**

Let the work done by 8 women in 18 days = $W_2$

=> $\frac{M_1 \times D_1}{W_1} = \frac{M_2 \times D_2}{W_2}$

=> $\frac{12 \times 16}{1} = \frac{8 \times 18}{W_2}$

=> $W_2 = \frac{18}{12 \times 2} = \frac{3}{4}$

Thus, remaining work = $1 – \frac{3}{4} = \frac{1}{4}$

This part of work was done by 12 women.

$\therefore$ Time taken by them = 4 days

=> Required time = 18 + 4 = 22 days

**4) Answer (D)**

Let efficiency of A = $3x$ units/day

=> Efficiency of B = $\frac{4}{3} \times 3x = 4x$ units/day

Let Work to be done = 8 units

=> Work done by A in 15 days = $15 \times 3x = \frac{5}{8} \times 8$

=> $45x = 5$

=> $x = \frac{5}{45} = \frac{1}{9}$

Thus, B’s 1 day work = $4 \times \frac{1}{9} = \frac{4}{9}$ units

Work done by B in 10 days = $\frac{4}{9} \times 10 = \frac{40}{9}$ units

=> Work left = $8 – \frac{40}{9} = \frac{32}{9}$

$\therefore$ Fraction of work left = $\frac{\frac{32}{9}}{8}$

= $\frac{4}{9}$

**5) Answer (D)**

Let efficiency of A = $2x$ units/day

=> Efficiency of B = $1.5 \times 2x = 3x$ units/day

Let Work to be done = 7 units

=> Work done by A in 12 days = $12 \times 2x = \frac{6}{7} \times 7$

=> $24x = 6$

=> $x = \frac{6}{24} = \frac{1}{4}$

Thus, B’s 1 day work = $3 \times \frac{1}{4} = \frac{3}{4}$ units

Work done by B in 6 days = $\frac{3}{4} \times 6 = \frac{9}{2}$ units

=> Work left = $7 – \frac{9}{2} = \frac{5}{2}$

$\therefore$ Fraction of work left = $\frac{\frac{5}{2}}{7}$

= $\frac{5}{14}$

**6) Answer (A)**

Let the total work to be done = 30 units

Rate at which A alone finishes the task = $\frac{30}{10}$ = 3 units/day

Rate at which A & B together finishes the work = $\frac{30}{6}$ = 5 units/day

=> Rate at which B alone finishes the work = 5 – 3 = 2 units/day

$\therefore$ Time taken by B to complete the task = $\frac{30}{2}$ = 15 days

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the total work to be done = 40 units

Rate at which B alone finishes the task = $\frac{40}{10}$ = 4 units/day

Rate at which A & B together finishes the work = $\frac{40}{8}$ = 5 units/day

=> Rate at which A alone finishes the work = 5 – 4 = 1 units/day

$\therefore$ Time taken by A to complete the task = $\frac{40}{1}$ = 40 days

**8) Answer (E)**

Using the formula, $M_1 D_1 = M_2 D_2$

=> $36 \times 14 = M_2 \times 8$

=> $M_2 = \frac{36 \times 14}{8} = 63$

$\therefore$ Additional workers = 63 – 36 = 27

**9) Answer (C)**

A’s 1 day’s work = $\frac{1}{16} – \frac{1}{24}$

= $\frac{3 – 2}{48} = \frac{1}{48}$

Hence, A alone will complete the work in 48 days.

**10) Answer (B)**

C’s 1 day’s work = $\frac{1}{24}$

=> A’s 1 day’s work = $\frac{3}{4}$ * $\frac{1}{24}$

= $\frac{1}{32}$

=> B’s 1 day’s work = 5 * $\frac{1}{32}$ = $\frac{5}{32}$

$\therefore$ B alone will finish the work in = $\frac{32}{5}$ days

= 6$\frac{2}{5}$ days

**11) Answer (D)**

Let rate at which A finishes the work = $100x$ units/day

=> Rate at which B finishes the work = $\frac{120}{100} \times 100x = 120x$ units/day

Rate at which C finishes the work = $\frac{140}{100} \times 120x = 168x$ units/day

Work done by A in 42 days = $42 \times 100x = 4200x$ units/day

Rate at which B and C finishes the work = $120x + 168x = 288x$ units/day

$\therefore$ Time taken by B and C together to finish the same work = $\frac{4200x}{288x}$

= $\frac{175}{12} = 14\frac{7}{12}$ days

**12) Answer (A)**

Length of first train = 240 m and second train = 270 m

Total length of the two trains = 240 + 270 = 510 m

Speed of first train = 60 kmph and second train = 48 kmph

Since, the trains are moving in opposite direction, thus relative speed = 60 + 48 = 108 kmph

= $(108 \times \frac{5}{18})$ m/s = $30$ m/s

Let time taken = $t$ seconds

Using, time = distance/speed

=> $t=\frac{510}{30}=17$ seconds

=> Ans – (A)

**13) Answer (D)**

Part of tank filled by A and B in 1 hour

= $\frac{1}{5} – \frac{1}{8} = \frac{3}{40}$

=> Time taken to fill the tank completely = $\frac{40}{3}$ hrs

$\therefore$ Time taken to fill two-fifth part of tank

= $\frac{2}{5} \times \frac{40}{3}$

= $\frac{16}{3} = 5\frac{1}{3}$ hrs

**14) Answer (C)**

It is clear from the question,

16 men do 5/9th of work in 30 days.

Let ‘n’ no. of more men are required to complete the remaining work.

Hence, (n+16) men do 4/9th of work in 8 days.

We know that,

$\frac{Amount of work}{No. of men\times{No. of days}}=Constant$.

Hence,

$\frac{5/9}{16\times30}=\frac{4/9}{(n+16)\times8}$.

$n=32$.

Hence, Option C is correct.

**15) Answer (A)**

At 7am the distance between the two trains will be 726kms.

Since the trains are moving in opposite directions, the relative speed is the sum of individual speeds.

The relative speed is 121kmph. and the distance is 726 kms.

The time taken to cover 726kms at a speed of 121kmph is nothing but the time taken by the two trains to meet each other.

Time taken to meet = 726/121 = 6 hours

Hence the trains would meet at 1:00 pm.

Hence Option A is the correct answer.
