## Answers

**1. Option (A)**

- A : B
- Time 4 : 5
- Work 5 : 4
- So, A’s Share=5/9*4500=2500
- B’s Share=4/9*4500=2000

**2. Option (D)**

- 10 person can finish work= 25*20/10=50days
- 15 person leave the work & work done in 37.5day
- Only 37.5/50=3/4 part of the work. hence all person must work
- Till (1-3/4)=1/4 of the work finished
- 25 person ¼ work in 20/4=5days.
- So, 15 person should leave the work after 5 days.

**3. Option (B)**

- 20*3x+30*2x+36x=780
- X=5
- So, required amount= 2(15*3*5+21*2*5+30*5)=1170

**4. Option (B)**

15 days

**5. Option (D)**

- A (x+8)
- A (x+9/2)
- (x+8)(x+9/2)/(2x+25/2) = x
- X = 6days
