Aptitude - Time And Work

A can do a work in 15 days and B in 20 days. If they work on it together for 4 days, then the fraction of the work that is left is :

A.  1/4

B.  1/10

C.  7/15

D.  8/15

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

8/15



Explanation :

A's 1 day's work = 1/15

B's 1 day's work = 1/20

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = ( (1/15) + (1/20) ) = 7/60

(A + B)'s 4 day's work = ( (7/60) x 4 ) = 7/15

Therefore, Remaining work = ( 1 - (7/15) ) = 8/15


A can lay railway track between two given stations in 16 days and B can do the same job in 12 days. With help of C, they did the job in 4 days only. Then, C alone can do the job in:

A.  9 (1/5) days

B.  9 (2/5) days

C.  9 (3/5) days

D.  10

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

9 (3/5) days



Explanation :

(A + B + C)'s 1 day's work = 1/4

A's 1 day's work = 1/16

B's 1 day's work = 1/12

=> C's 1 day's work = 1/4 - ( (1/16) + (1/12) ) = 5/48

So, C alone can do the work in 48/5 = 9 (3/5) days

 


A, B and C can do a piece of work in 20, 30 and 60 days respectively. In how many days can A do the work if he is assisted by B and C on every third day?

A.  12 days

B.  15 days

C.  16 days

D.  18 days

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

15 days



Explanation :

A's 2 day's work = (1/20) x 2 = 1/10

(A + B + C)'s 1 day's work = (1/20) + (1/30) + (1/60) = 1/10

Work done in 3 days = (1/10) + (1/10) = 1/5

Now, 1/5 work is done in 3 days

=> Whole work will be done in (3 x 5) = 15 days


A is thrice as good as workman as B and therefore is able to finish a job in 60 days less than B. Working together, they can do it in:

A.  20 days

B.  22 (1/2) days

C.  25 days

D.  25 (1/2) days

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

22 (1/2) days



Explanation :

Ratio of times taken by A and B = 1 : 3

The time difference is (3 - 1) 2 days while B take 3 days and A takes 1 day.

If difference of time is 2 days, B takes 3 days.

If difference of time is 60 days, B takes (3/2) x 60 = 90 days

So, A takes 30 days to do the work.

A's 1 day's work = 1/30

B's 1 day's work = 1/90

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = (1/30) + (1/90) = 4/90 = 2/45

=> A and B together can do the work in 45/2 = 22 (1/2) days


A alone can do a piece of work in 6 days and B alone in 8 days. A and B undertook to do it for Rs. 3200. With the help of C, they completed the work in 3 days. How much is to be paid to C?

A.  Rs. 375

B.  Rs. 400

C.  Rs. 600

D.  Rs. 800

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

Rs. 400



Explanation :

C's 1 day's work = (1/3) - ( (1/6) + (1/8) ) = 1/24

A's wages : B's wages : C's wages = 1/6 : 1/8 : 1/24 = 4 : 3: 1

=> C's share for 3 days = Rs. ( 3 x (1/24) x 3200 ) = Rs. 400


A man can do a job in 15 days. His father takes 20 days and his son finishes it in 25 days. How long will they take to complete the job if they all work together?

A.  Less than 6 days

B.  Exactly 6 days

C.  Approximately 6.4 days

D.  More than 10 days

View Answer  

Correct Answer :

Approximately 6.4 days



Explanation :

1 day's work of the three persons = (1/15+1/20+1/25)

                                                             47/300.

So, all the three together will complete the work in = 300/47

                                                                               = 6.4 days.
