### Q1

Rajan can do a piece of work in 10 days, Rakesh can do in 12 days and Mukesh do the same work in 15 days. In how many days they can finish the work, working together
A. 3 days B. 5 days C. 4 days D. 2 days

C
$\frac{1}{10} + \frac{1}{12} + \frac{1}{15} = \frac {6 + 5 + 1}{60} = \frac {1}{4}$ = 4 Days

### Q2

Rambabu, Santosh and Sunil can finish a piece of work in 10, 12 and 15 days respectively. If Santosh stops doing the work after 2 days, Rambabu and Sunil will finish the work in
A. 2 days B. 3 days C. 4 days D. 5 days

B
2($\frac{{R}_{b}}{\frac{{S}_{A}}{{S}_{L}}}$) = 2 ($\frac{{1}{10}}{\frac{\frac{1}{12}}{\frac{1}{15}}}$) Balance work to be done by ${R}_{b}$)and SL${S}_{L}$)
= 1 - $\frac {1}{2}$ = $\frac {1}{2}$
(Rb + SL)’s 1 day work
$\frac {1}{10} + \frac {1}{15} = \frac {3 + 2}{30} = \frac {1}{6}$
i.e, (Rb + SL) will take 3 days to do $\frac {1}{2}$ of the work

### Q3

12 men complete a work in 18 days. 6 days after they had started working, 4 men joined them. How many days will all of them take to complete the remaining work ?
A. 8 days B. 12 days C. 13 days D. 9 days

D
12 men’s 6 days work = $\frac{6}{18}$$\frac{1}{3}$
i.e, $\frac{1}{\frac{2}{3}}$ = $\frac{12 * 18}{16 * ?}$
? = 9 days

### Q4

72 men can build a wall 280 m long in 42 days. The number of persons who would take 36 days to build a similar will 100 m in length will be
A. 15 B. 30 C. 25 D. 20

B
$\frac{280}{100}$ = $\frac{72 * 42}{? * 36}$
? = 30 men.

### Q5

A, B and C can do a piece of work in 12, 15 and 20 days respectively. How long will they take to finish the work together?
A. 10 days B. 5 days C. 8 days D. 12 days

B
Let time taken by A, B, C combined is D days.
i.e, ($\frac{1}{12}$ ÷ $\frac{1}{15}$ ÷ $\frac{1}{20}$)D = 1
($\frac{1}{5}$) * D = 1
D = 5 days
