    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – B. 11
    Explanation :
    Efficiency (A : B) = 5 : 4
    Number of days(A : B) = 4x : 5x = 4x : 25
    ∴ Number of days required by A to finish the work alone = 4x
    = 4 x 5 = 20.
    A and B work together for last 5 days = 5 x 9 = 45%
    Efficiency of A = 5% and B’s efficiency = 4%
    ∴ No. of days taken by A to complete 55% work = 55/5 = 11days
  2. Working together B and C take 50% more number of days than A, B and C together take and A and B working together, take 8/3 more number of days than A, B and C take together. If A, B and C all have worked together till the completion of the work and B has received Rs.120 out of total earnings of Rs. 480 then in how many days did A, B and C together complete the whole work?
    A. 2 days
    B. 4 days
    C. 6 days
    D. 8 days
    E. 5 days

    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – E. 5 days
    Explanation :
    The days ratio of (A + B + C) : (B + C) = X:3X/2 = 2X:3x;
    Efficiency ratio = 3X:2X
    Efficiency of A = x.
    (480/3X) = Rs.160
    Amount received by B = Rs.120 & C = 200
    160:120:200 =4:3:5
    1/4:1/3:1/5= 15:20:12;
    (1/15+1/12+1/20)*Y = 1
    Y = 5 days
  3. All of them started to work together but A leaves after 4 days. B leaves the job 3 days before the completion of the work. How long would the work last?
    A. 6 days
    B. 9 days
    C. 18 days
    D. 5 days
    E. None of these

    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – B. 9 days
    Explanation :
    Let the work lasted for x days,
    A’s 4 day’s work + B (x – 3) day’s work + C’s x day’s work = 1
    ⇒ (4/16) + (x – 3) / (64/5) + x/32 = 1
    ⇒ 5(x – 3)/64 + x/32 = 1 – 1/4
    ⇒ [5(x – 3) + 2x] / 64 = 3/4
    ⇒ 7x – 15 = 48
    ∴ x = (48 + 15)/7 = 63/7 = 9 days
  4. C started the work and left after some days, when 25% work was done. After it D joined and completed it working for 25 days. In how many days C and D can do the complete work, working together?
    A. 6
    B. 8
    C. 10
    D. 12
    E. 20

    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – E. 20
    Explanation :
    Efficiency of C = (100/50) = 2%
    Rest work = 75%
    ∴ Efficiency of D = 75/25 = 3%
    ∴ Combined efficiency of C and D = 5%
    ∴ Number of days required by C and D to work together = 100/5 = 20 days.
  5. B and C started the work. After 3 days D joined them. What is the total number of days in which they had completed the work?
    A. 12
    B. 8
    C. 4
    D. 6
    E. None of these

    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – C.4 days
    Explanation :
    Efficiency of B and C = 11.11 + 5.55 = 16.66%
    Work done in 3 days = 3 x 16.66 = 50%
    Rest work done by B, C and D = 50/50 = 1 day
    Work can be completed in 4 days.

    C. Loss of Rs.21
    D. Loss of Rs.24
    E. None of these

    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – C. Loss of Rs.21
    Explanation :
    CP = 8400
    SP = 8400 * 95/100 = 7980
    CP = 7980
    SP = 7980 * 105/100 = 8379
    Difference = 8400 – 8379 = 21
  2. A, B and C invests rupees 8000, 12000 and 10000 respectively in a business. At the end of the year the balance sheet shows a loss of initial investment. Find the share of loss of B.

    C.4800
    D.5000
    E.None of these

    Answer & Explanation
    Answer – C.4800
    Explanation :
    Total loss after one year = 30000*40/100 = 12000
    share of B = (40/10)*12000 = 4800
