    from here t2 = 6/8 hrs
    = 45 min
    so total time = 3hrs 45 min

  37. A Contractor employed a certain number of workers to finish constructing a road in a certain scheduled time. Sometime later, when a part of work had been completed, he realised that the work would get delayed by three-fourth of the scheduled time, so he at once doubled the no of workers and thus he managed to finish the road on the scheduled time. How much work he had been completed, before increasing the number of workers?

    A) 10 %
    B) 14 2/7 %
    C) 20 %
    D) Can't be determined

  38. Let he initially employed x workers which works for D days and he estimated 100 days for the whole work and then he doubled the worker for (100-D) days.

    D * x +(100- D) * 2x= 175x

    => D= 25 days

    Now , the work done in 25 days = 25x

    Total work = 175x

    therefore, workdone before increasing the no of workers = 25x/175x*100 = 100/7% = 14 2/7%

  39. A single reservoir supplies the petrol to the whole city, while the reservoir is fed by a single pipeline filling the reservoir with the stream of uniform volume.
