Correct Answers


  1. 2 men = 7 boys => 1man= 7/2 days

5 women= 7boys=> 1 women=7/5boys


Now,     B1*D1= B2*D2


D2= 98days


  1. 6C+2M=6days





60 children can do the work in 1day

Now, 5men= 10Children

10 children can do the work in 6days.


  1. ¾*(x-2)x=(x+7)(x-10)

­­­­­­2 – 6x-280=0

X=20 and x= -14

So, the acceptable value is x=20

Total work= (x-2)*x=18*20=360unit

Now       360=30*K         (30=20+10)



  1. Efficiency of a man :  woman   : girl  = 6:3:1

Share of a woman and girl =   (3+1)/(6+3+1)*10000



  1. Work of a man for 1 hour= 3/2 women’s work for 1 hour

Again, work of a man for 1 da   =(3/2*9/7.5)women’s  work for 1 hour

Work of a man for 1 day= 9/5 women’s work for 1 day


10Men+6Women= 10* 9/5 + 6=24women

10Men+9 Women= 10*9/5 + 9= 27 women


D1*W1= D2*W2

                                                    18*24= D2*27

D2= 16 days


  1. Efficiency of A=5%

Efficiency of B=4%

Efficiency of C= -3.33%

It means in every 3 consecutive hours taps A,B and C can fil    5.66% =(5+4-3.33)

Therefore in 51 hours= (3*17) taps A,B and C can fill 96.33%=(5.66*17)

The remaining part i.e, 3.66%=(100-96.33) can be filled up by A in 11/15 hours =(3.66/5),sine it is now A’s turn

Hence the total time required= 51+11/15=51 11/15


  1. 20 minute


  1. LCM of 2,3 and 4= 12

In 12 hours A will make 6 Sweter

In 12 hours B will make 4 Sweter

In 12 hours C will make 3 Sweter

i.e, in 12 hours they will weave 13 sweter

so, in 84 hours they will weave 91 sweter

Now, in 9 hours A will make 4 sweter

In 9 hours B will make 3 sweter

In 9 hours C will make 2 sweter

So. They will complete 100 sweter in 93 hours.

Note: Since, they cannot share each others work so B will take completely 9 hours to make 3 sweter,even when A and C stay idle for the last 1 hour till B completes his own work.


  1. Efficiency of A=10%

Efficiency of B= 6.66%

Efficiency of C= 5%

Efficiency of D= 3.33%

Efficiency of A+B+C+D=8.33     (TIME=12HOURS)

Now, go through options and consider A and B as inlet pipes and C and D as outlet pipes, then


Which is required hence it is certain that C and D are outlet pipes.


  1. Efficiency of Himesh and Fatima (Combined)=10%

Consider option (d)

Efficiency of Fatima=3.33%

Efficiency of Himesh=6.66%

Now, the new efficiency of Fatima=16.66%

And the new efficiency of Himesh = 3.33%

Therefore, newly combined efficiency of Himesh and Fatima=20%

Therefore, required number of days by Himesh and Fatima

Working together=5

Since 5 is half of 10, hence the option (D) is correct.
