Clear B. 4 boys and 3 girls can work 20 units per day. For less than 100 units they need together max. 5 days.

Solution



Given:
    • Each boy does exactly 2 units of work per day
    • Each girl does exactly 3 units of work per day

To find:
    • Can 4 boys and 3 girls finish the total work within 6 days?

Approach and Working:
As each boy does 2 units of work per day,
    • In 1 day, 4 boys will do 4 * 2 = 8 units of work

Similarly, as each girl does 3 units of work per day,
    • In 1 day, 3 girls will do 3 * 3 = 9 units of work

Therefore, the total work done by 4 boys and 3 girls in 1 day = 8 + 9 = 17 units
So, in 6 days, they will do = 17 * 6 = 102 units of work

Analysing Statement 1
    • As per the information given in statement 1, the total work is more than 80 units
    • As it is more than 80, it can be more than or equal or less than 102 units
      o Depending on whether it is more or equal or less, the work may or may not be completed

Hence, statement 1 is not sufficient

Analysing Statement 2
    • As per the information given in statement 1, the total work is less than 100 units
    • As the group can complete 102 units of work in 6 days, they will definitely complete the work within time

Hence, statement 2 is sufficient to answer

Hence, the correct answer is option B.

Answer: B
