Solution
Let the amount of sugar for 30 days = A unit
Amount of sugar consumed per day = A/30 unit per day
Given that the use is increased by 50 percent, so new amount of sugar consumed due to the increase = (1 + 50/100) x A/30 unit per day = A/20 unit per day
Therefore, the number of days the same amount of sugar would last last = A/(A/20) = 20 days

Hence the correct answer is Option B. 20
