Questions Penned by Yogit

**P can do 2/5 of the work in 10 days and Q can do 4/5 of the work in 16 days. If both of them start working together then the time in which the work can be done?**

a) 12.1/9 days

b) 11.1/9 days

c) 11.2/9 days

d) 12.4/9 days

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**b) 11.1/9 days**

**Explanation :**

P can complete the work in 25 days and Q can complete the work in 20 days. So both will complete the work in (20*25)/45 = 100/9 days

**A does half as much work as B does in one sixth of the time. If together they take 20 days to complete the work, then what is the time taken by B to complete the work independently.**

a) 80 days

b) 100 days

c) 120 days

d) 140 days

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**a) 80 days**

**Explanation :**

Let B take X days to complete the work then in one –sixth of the time i.e. x/6 days. Now A do half work as done by B so A will take twice the time i.e. 2*x/6 = x/3 to complete the job alone

So 1/x + 3/x = 1/20, x = 80 days

**A contractor undertakes to make a mall in 60 days and he employs 30 men. After 30 days it is found that only one- third of the work is completed. How many extra men should he employ so that the work is completed on time?**

a) 20men

b) 25men

c) 30men

d) 40men

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**c) 30men**

**Explanation :**

Let total work is w and it is given that one-third of the work is completed after 30 days. Means

M*D = 30*30 = w/3, so total work = 30*30*3

2700 = 30*30 + (30+p)*30, so we get P = 30 (p = additional men)

**50 men could complete a work in 200 days. They worked together for 150 days, after that due to bad weather the work is stopped for 25 days. How many more workers should be employed so as to complete the work in time?**

a) 25

b) 35

c) 50

d) 60

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**c) 50**

**Explanation :**

Let additional workers be P,

(50*150)/(50*200) = 3/4 of the work is already completed and now only 1/4 of the work is to be done. So,

1/4 = ((50 + P) * 25)/50*200, solve for p, we get P = 50

**P and Q were assigned to do a work for an amount of 1200. P alone can do it in 15 days while Q can do it in 12 days. With the help of R they finish the work in 6 days. Find the share if C.**

a) 100

b) 120

c) 140

d) 160

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**b) 120**

**Explanation :**

1/15 + 1/12 + 1/c = 1/6, we got C = 60 (it means C will take 60 days to complete the work alone)

so ratio of work done by P:Q:R = 4:5:1

so c share = (1/10)*1200 = 120

**A can do a work in 32 days. P who is 60 percent more efficient than A. Find how much time they will take together to do the same work?**

a) 150/13 days

b) 160/13 days

c) 170/3 days

d) 190/3 days

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**b) 160/13 days**

**Explanation :**

A’s one day work = 1/32 so P one day work = (160/100)*1/32 = 1/20, so P will take 20 days to complete the work.

So Both A and P will take = (32*20)/52 = 160/13 days

**P does half as much work as Q in three-fourth of the time. If together they take 24 days to complete the work, how much time shall P take to complete the work?**

a) 50 days

b) 60 days

c) 70 days

d) 80 days

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**b) 60 days**

**Explanation :**

Let Q take x days to complete the work, so P will take 2*3/4 of X day to complete the work i.e. 3x/2 days

1/x + 2/3x = 1/24, we get x = 40 days, so P will take = 3/2 of 40 = 60 days

**X and Y can do a piece of work in 12 and 15 days respectively. They began their work but before 3 days of its completion Y left. In how many days the work will be completed.**

a) 6 days

b) 8 days

c) 10 days

d) 12 days

e) None of these

###### Answer & Explanation

Answer –**b) 8 days**

**Explanation :**

(1/12 + 1/15)*(T – 3) + 3/12 = 1

Now to type 180 pages they will take, (8 + 10)*T = 180, T = 10 hours

so 40 days
