D. 8

**Answers With Explanation:**

1. A.

Work done by A and B in 1 day = 1/18

Work done by B and C in 1 day = 1/24

Work done by C and A in 1 day = 1/36

so Work done by 2(A, B and C) in 1 day = 1/18 +
1/24 + 1/36 = 9/72

so Work done by A, B and C in 1 day = 9/(72*2)
= 9/144 = 1/16

so all of them together complete the work in 16
days.

2. C.

Work done by (A + B) in 1 day = 1/72

Work done by (B + C) in 1 day = 1/120

Work done by (C + A) in 1 day = 1/90

so Work done by 2(A + B + C) in 1 day = 1/72 +
1/120 + 1/90 = 1/30

so Work done by (A + B + C) in 1 day =
1/(30*2) = 1/60

so Work done by (A + B + C) in 3 day = = 1/60
*3 = 1/20

3. C.

A can complete 2/3 of a work in 4 days

A can complete the whole of a work in (4*3)/2 =
6 days

Similarly B can complete the whole of a work in
(6*5)/3 = 10 days

So Work done by A and B in 1 day = 1/6 + 1/10 =
4/15

So Days taken by A and B to complete the whole
work = 15/4 = 3(3/4)

4. C.

Ratio of share of A,B C = ratio of 1 day's work

= 1/15 : 1/20 : 1/24

= 120*1/15:120*1/20 :
120*1/24 = 8:6:5

so sum of ratio terms = 8+6+5 = 19

So the share of C = 76*5/19 = Rs.20

5. C.

6. B.

Let B take x day to finish the work.

so A take 2x days and C takes 2x/3 days

so 1/2x + 1/x + 1/(2x/3) = 1/2

so x = 6

so The number of days required by B = 6 days

7. D.

8. B.

9. A.

10 men = 18 boys => 5 men = 9 boys => 15
men = 27 boys

15 men and 33 boys = 27 boys + 33 boys = 60
boys

so 18 boys can do a work in 15 days......I

Let 60 boys can do twice work in x days.....II

so (18*15)/1 = (60*x)/2 => x = 9 days

10. A
