**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

B does complete work in 20 days

hence in unit time amount of work done will be $\frac{1}{20}$

suppose in unit time amount of work done by A will be $x$

hence when they are working together amount of work done in unit time will be

$x$ + $\frac{1}{20}$ = $\frac{1}{15}$ (given)

$x$= $\frac{1}{60}$

it means A does $\frac{1}{60}$ amount of work in unit time

now unit work will be done ,when A alone is working, in 60 days

**2) Answer (B)**

As distance is constant and we know s = \frac{d}{t} (where s is distance and t is time)

hence st = constant

or $s_{1}t_{1}$= $s_{2}t_{2}$

or $s_{1}t_{1}$=$ \frac{3}{4}s_{1}(t_{1}+ 20)$

hence $t_{1}$ = 60

**3) Answer (C)**

Amount of work done by B and C together in unit time will be $\frac{1}{20}+\frac{1}{30}$=$\frac{5}{60}$

hence in two days amount of work done by B and C together = $\frac{10}{60}$

=$\frac{1}{6}$

remaining work = $\frac{5}{6}$

A does $\frac{1}{18}$ amount of work in unit time

hence $\frac{5}{6}$ amount of work will be done in 15 days.

**4) Answer (B)**

A does 1/3 of work in 5 days

hence in 1 day it will do 1/15 amount of work

similarly B will do 2/50 amount of work in one day

Together they will do $\frac{1}{15} + \frac{2}{50}$ = $\frac{16}{150}$ amount of work in one day

hence unit work will be done in $\frac{150}{16}$ days or 9$\frac{3}{8}$ days

**5) Answer (C)**

In 12 days unit work is done by 7 men

hence in 1 day $\frac{1}{12}$ amount of work is done by 7 men

so 1 man does $\frac{1}{12\times7}$ amount of work in one day.

we have to find no of man to do double the work in 8 days with above efficiency

let’s say we have $x$ men

now total work done in single day will be $\frac{1}{12\times7} \times x $

hence in 8 days = $\frac{1}{12\times7} \times 8x $ = 2 ( as work is doubled)

$x$ = 21

additional man required = 14

**6) Answer (D)**

let’s say slower pipe fills tank in $x$min. so in 1 min. it fills $\frac{1}{x}$

and faster one will fill in $\frac{x}{3}$ min. so in 1 min. it fills $\frac{3}{x}$

together in 1 min. they will fill ($\frac{1}{x}$+$\frac{3}{x}$) of tank

as it is given that together they will fill the tank in 36 min.

so

$(\frac{1}{x}+\frac{3}{x})\times36$ = 1

or $x$ = 144 min.

**7) Answer (B)**

Volume of water in time t to reach at 8 cm. height will be equal to volume of tank till height 8 cm.

hence volume of water in time t to reach at height 8 cm. =$ .3\times .2\times \frac{2000}{6}\times$( spped in per minute)

which is equal to volume of tank =$ 200\times150\times \frac{8}{100}$

equating both and after solving we will get t = 120 min.

**8) Answer (C)**

A and B will do in 1 day, $\frac{1}{12}$ amount of work

B and C will do in 1 day, $\frac{1}{15}$ amount of work

Hence adding up above two equations

A+2B+C will do in 1 day, $\frac{9}{60}$ amount of work

as it is mentioned A=2C (i.e. efficiency of A is twice of C)

So 2C+2B+C will do in 1 day $\frac{9}{60}$ amount of work

or 2(B+C) + C = $\frac{9}{60}$

or C = $\frac{1}{60}$ (as B+C = $\frac{1}{15}$ )

or B = $\frac{1}{15}$ – $\frac{1}{60}$ = $\frac{1}{20}$

So B alone will do work in 20 days.

**9) Answer (B)**

A+B will do $\frac{1}{12}$ amount of work in a day.

B+C will do $\frac{1}{15}$ amount of work.

C+A will do $\frac{1}{20}$ amount of work.

Adding above 3 equation 2(A+B+C) = $\frac{1}{5}$

or (A+B+C) = $\frac{1}{10}$

Hence together A,B and C will do complete work in 10 days.

**10) Answer (B)**

$P(1+ \frac{r}{100})^3 = 8P$ (Where P is principal amount , r is rate)

So $(1+ \frac{r}{100}) = 2$

Now for 16 times

$P(1+ \frac{r}{100})^t = 16P$

or $2^t = 16$

or $t = 4$
