(b) 10
(c) 12

2. 8 men can complete a piece of work in

men and 8 women together complete the same work?
(a) 16 days
(b) 12 days
(c) 14 days

4. 15 Men take 20
days to complete a job working 8 hours a day. The number of hours a day should

5. 3 persons undertake to complete a
piece of work for Rs. 1,200. The first person can complete the work in 8 days,
second person in 12 days and third person in 16 days. They complete the work
with the help of a fourth person in 3 days. What does the fourth person get?
(a) Rs. 180
(b) Rs. 200
(c) Rs. 225
(d) Rs. 250
Sol. Let the fourth person complete the entire work in x days.
Now, according to the question:
3/8+3/12+3/16+3/x=1
⇒1/x=1/3-1/8-1/12-1/16=(16 – 6 – 4 – 3)/48=1/16
∴ x = 16
Ratio of wages =1/8 ∶1/12 ∶1/16 ∶1/16=6∶4∶3∶3
Sum of ratios = 6 + 4 + 3 + 3
∴ Fourth person’s share =3/16×1200  =Rs. 225.

7. A can do a piece
of work in 20 days and B in 30 days. They work together for 7 days and then
both leave the work. Then C alone finishes the remaining work in 10 days. In
how many will C finish the full work?
(a) 25 days
(b) 30 days
(c) 24 days
(d) 20 days
Sol.(c) Work done by A and B in 7 days
=7/20+7/30=(21+14)/60=35/60=7/12
Remaining work =1-7/12=5/12
∴ Time taken by C =12/5×10= 24 days

9. A farmer can
plough a filed working 6 hours per day in 18 days. The worker has to work how
many hours per day to finish the same work in 12 days?
(a) 7
(b) 9

Days. B starts the work and works only for 3 days. Thereafter A completes the
job. He will finish it in:
(a) 10 days
(b) 7 days
(c) 12 days
(d) 28 days
Sol.(d) Time taken by A in doing the work = 35 days
Time taken by B in doing the same work = 15 days
B’s 3 days’ work =3/15=1/5
Remaining work =1-1/5=4/5
∴ Time taken by A in finishing the remaining work =(35×4/5)=28  days

12. 2 men and 4 boys
can do a piece of work in 10 days, while 4 men and 5 boys can do it in 6 days.
Men and boys are paid wages according to their output. If the daily wage of a
man is Rs. 40, then the ratio of daily wages of a man and a boy will be:
(a) 5 : 3
(b) 5 : 2
(c) 7 : 4
(d) 7 : 3
Sol.(b) (2m+4b)×10=(4m+5b)×6
⇒20m+40b=24m+30b
⇒4m=10b
⇒2m=5b
∴5b=2×40
⇒b=(2×40)/5=16
∴ required ratio = 40 : 16 = 5 : 2

14. P, Q, R are
employed to do a work for Rs. 5750. P and Q together finished 19/23
of work and Q and R together finished 8/23 of work. Wage of Q in rupees, is:
(a) 2850
(b) 3750
(c) 2750
(d) 1000
Sol.(d) Work done by (P + Q + R) = 1 …(i)
Work done by (P + Q) =19/23              …(ii)
Work done by (Q + R) =8/23      …(iii)
From equations (ii) + (iii) – (i)
Q =19/23+8/23-1=(27 –  23)/23=4/23
∴ Wages of Q =4/23×5750 = Rs. 1000
15. A and B together can complete a piece
