### Quiz

1. A does half as much work as B in three –fourth of the time if together they take 18 days to complete a work. How much time shall B take to do it?

A. 30days
B. 35 days
C. 40 days
D. None of these

Explanation:
B takes x days to do the work

Therefore, A takes (2 × $$\frac{3}{4}$$)xi.e.., 3x/2 days to do it

Now , (A +B)’s 1 day’s work = $$\frac{1}{18}$$

Therefore, $$\frac{1}{x}$$ + $$\frac{2}{3}$$x = $$\frac{1}{18}$$ or x =30

2. 12 Men or 18 women can reap a field in 14 days. The number of days that 8 men and 16 women will take to reap it?

A. 5
B. 7
C. 8
D. 9

Explanation:
12 men = 18 women or 1 man = $$\frac{3}{2}$$ women

Therefore 8 men + 16 women = (8 × $$\frac{3}{2}$$ + 16) women i.e.., 28 women

Now 18 women can reap the field in 14 days

Therefore, 28 women can reap it in = 9 days

3. If 3 men or 4 women can construct a wall in 43 days, then the number of days that 7 men and 5 women take to construct it is?

A. 12
B. 18
C. 24
D. 30

Explanation:

3 men = 4 women or 1 man = $$\frac{4}{3}$$ women

Therefore 7 men + 5 women = (7 × $$\frac{4}{3}$$ + 5)women i.e.., 43/3 women

4 women can construct the wall in 43 days

Therefore, $$\frac{43}{3}$$ women can construct it in = 12 days

4. 10 men can finish a piece of work in 10 days. Whereas it takes 12 women to finish it in 10 days if 15 men and 6 women undertake to complete the work. How many days will they take to complete it?

A. 2
B. 4
C. 5
D. 11

Explanation:
10 men = 12 women or 1 man = $$\frac{6}{5}$$ women

Therefore 15 men + 6 women = (15 x $$\frac{6}{5}$$ + 6)women i.e,, 24 women

Now 12 women can do the work in 10 days

Therefore, 24 women can do it in = 5 days

5. 8 Children and 12 men complete a certain piece of work in 9 days. If each child takes twice the time taken by man to finish the work. In how many days will 12 men finish the same work?

A. 8
B. 15
C. 9
D. 12

Explanation:
2 children = 1 man

Therefore (8 children +12 men) = 16 men

Now fewer men more days 12: 16:: 9: x

Therefore, x = ($$\frac{144}{12}$$) = 12 days

1. A can do a piece of work in 10 days and B can do the same piece of work in 20 days. They start the work together but after 5 days. A leaves off B will do the remaining piece of work in?

A. 5 days
B. 6 days
C. 8 days
D. 10 days

Explanation:
(A +B)’s 5 days work = 5 ($$\frac{1}{10}$$ +$$\frac{1}{20}$$) = ¾

Remaining work =(1 –$$\frac{3}{4}$$) = ¼ $$\frac{1}{20}$$work is done by B in 1 day.

Therefore, ¼ work is done by B in (20 x $$\frac{1}{4}$$)i.e.., 5 days

2. A and B can together finish a work in 30 days. They worked for it for 20 days and then B left. The remaining work was done by A alone in 20 more days. Alone can finish the work in?

A. 48 days
B. 50 days
C. 54 days
D. 60 days

Explanation:
(A+ B)’s 20 day’s work =(20 x $$\frac{1}{30}$$) = $$\frac{2}{3}$$

Remaining work = (1 – $$\frac{2}{3}$$) = $$\frac{1}{3}$$ $$\frac{1}{3}$$ work is done by A in 20 days

Whole work can be done by A in (3 x 20)days i.e.., 60 days

3. A can complete a job in 9 days. B in 10 days and C in 15 days. B and C start the work and are forced to leave after 2 days. The time taken to complete the remaining work is?

A. 6 days
B. 9 days
C. 10 days
D. 13 days

Explanation:
(B + C)’s 2 day’s work = 2 (1/10 + 1/15) = 1/3 Remaining work = (1 – $$\frac{1}{3}$$) = $$\frac{2}{3}$$ $$\frac{1}{9}$$ work is done by A in 1 day Therefore $$\frac{2}{3}$$ work is done by A in (9 x $$\frac{2}{3}$$) = 6 days

4. A, B and C together earn Rs.150 per day while A and C together earn Rs. 94 and B and C together earn Rs. 76. The daily earning of C is?

A. Rs. 75
B. Rs.56
C. Rs. 34
D. Rs.20

Explanation:
B’s daily earning = RS.(150 -94) = Rs. 56

A’s daily earning = Rs.(150 -76) = Rs.74

C’s daily earning = Rs.[150 – (56+74)] = Rs. 20

5. A can do a certain job in 12 days. B is 60% more efficient than A. Then Number of days it takes B to do the same piece of work is?

A. 6
B. 6 $$\frac{1}{4}$$
C. 7 $$\frac{1}{2}$$
D. 8

Explanation:
Ratio of times taken by A and B = 160 : 100 = 8 : 5

If A takes 8 days B takes 5 days

If A takes 12 days, B takes =( 7 $$\frac{5}{8}$$ x 12) = 7 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ days

1. A, B and C contract a work for Rs. 550. Together A and B are to do 7/11 of the work. The share of C should be?

A. 7 $$\frac{3}{4}$$
B. 8 $$\frac{4}{5}$$
C. 9 $$\frac{3}{8}$$
D. 10

Explanation:
Work to be done by C = (1 – $$\frac{7}{11}$$) = $$\frac{4}{11}$$

Therefore, (A +B) = C = $$\frac{7}{11}$$ : $$\frac{4}{11}$$ = 7 : 4

Therefore C’s share = Rs.(550 x $$\frac{4}{11}$$) = Rs. 200

2. Mahesh and Umesh can complete a work in 10 days and 15 days respectively. Umesh starts the work and after 5 days Mahesh also joins him in all the work would be completed in

A. 7 days
B. 9days
C. 11 days
D. None of these

Explanation:
Umesh’s 5 day’s work = 5 x $$\frac{1}{15}$$ = 1/3

Remaining work = (1 – $$\frac{1}{3}$$) = $$\frac{2}{3}$$ ($$\frac{1}{10}$$ + $$\frac{1}{15}$$) work is done by both in 1 day

Therefore 2/3 work is done by both in (6 x $$\frac{2}{3}$$) = 4days.

The work was completed in 9 days

3. Twelve men can complete a work in 8 days. Three days after they started the work, 3 more men joined them. In how many days will all of them together complete remaining work?

A. 2
B. 4
C. 5
D. 6

Explanation:
1 man’s one day’s work = $$\frac{1}{96}$$ 12 men’s 3 day’s work = (3 x $$\frac{1}{8}$$) = $$\frac{3}{8}$$

Remaining work = (1 – $$\frac{3}{8}$$) = $$\frac{5}{8}$$ 15 men’s 1 day’s work = $$\frac{15}{96}$$

Now 15/96 work is done by them in 1day

Therefore 5/8 work will be done by them in ($$\frac{96}{15}$$ x $$\frac{5}{8}$$) i.e., 4 day

4. X and Y can do a piece of work in 20 days and 12 days respectively. X started the work alone and then after 4 days Y joined him till the completion of the work. How long did the work last?

A. 6 days
B. 10 days
C. 15 days
D. 20 days

Explanation:
Work done by X in 4 days = ($$\frac{1}{20}$$ * 4) = $$\frac{1}{5}$$

Remaining work = (1 – $$\frac{1}{5}$$) = $$\frac{4}{5}$$
(X + Y)’s 1 day work = ($$\frac{1}{20}$$ + $$\frac{1}{12}$$) = $$\frac{2}{15}$$
Now, 2/15 work is done by X and Y in 1 day.
So, 4/5 work will be done by X and Y in ($$\frac{15}{2}$$ * $$\frac{4}{5}$$) = 6 days.
Hence, total time taken = (6 + 4) = 10 days.

5. A and B can together do a price of work in 15 days. B alone can do it in 20 days. In how many days can A alone do it?

A. 30 days
B. 40 days
C. 45 days
D. 60days

Explanation:
A’s 1 day’s work = ($$\frac{1}{15}$$ – $$\frac{1}{20}$$) = $$\frac{1}{60}$$

Therefore, A alone can finish = 60 days
