Hello Aspirants. Welcome to Online Quantitative Aptitude Section with explanation in AffairsCloud.com. Here we are creating question sample in **Time and Work**, which is common for all the competitive exams . We have included Some questions that are repeatedly asked in bank exams !!

**A is 25% more efficient than B. C does half the work done by A & B together. If C alone does the work n 30 days, then A alone can do the work in**

A)32days

B)27days

C)22days

D)25(1/2)days

E)None of these

###### Answer

**B)27days**

Explanation :

A’s one day’s work:B’s one days work = 125:100 = 5:4

Let A’s & B’s one day’s work be 5x and 4x days

Then C’s one day’s work = 9x/2

= > 9x/2 = 1/30

= > x = ((1/30)*(2/9)) = 1/135

A’s one day’s work = 5/135 = 1/27

**P can finish a work in 27 days, Q in 9 days and C in 12 days. Q & R start the work but are forced to leave after 4 days. The remaining work done by P in:**

A)6 days

B)9 days

C)10 days

D)12 days

E)None of these

###### Answer

**A)6 days**

Explanation :

(Q+R)’s one day’s work = 1/9+1/12 = 7/36

Q & R in 3 days = 4*7/36 = 7/9

Remaining work = 1-(7/9) = 2/9

1/27 work is done by A in 1 day.

2/9 work is done by A in 27*2/9 = 6 days

**4 men and 6 women can complete a work in 8 days, while 3 men and 7 women can complete it in 10 days. In how many days will 20 women complete it?**

A)10days

B)15days

C)20days

D)25days

E)None of these

###### Answer

**C)20days**

Explanation :

1 man’s 1 day’s work = x days

1 woman’s 1 day’s work = y

Then, 4x+6y = 1/8 and 3x+7y = 1/10.

Solving these two equations y = 1/400

1 woman’s 1 day’s work = 1/400

20 women = 20/400 = 1/20 = 20days

x = 36

C = 3/x = 3/36 = 1/12 = 12 days

**If 36 men completed the work in 35 days working 7 hours a day. How many more men should be engaged to finish the rest of the work in 28 days working 5 hours a day?**

A)45

B)63
