Very nice question. My answer is D:

Inflow volume in 1 hour = number of pipes x rate = 12 x 1 = 12
Outflow volume in 1 hour = number of pipes x rate = Q x 1.5 = 1.5Q
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Remaining volume = Inflow volume - outflow volume = 12 - 1.5Q

Because rates are constant, after 12 hour we have --> 12 x (12 - 1.5Q) = 54
--> Q = 5

it can be done in 1 step and less than 45 sec

54=1212*1-x*1.5}
54=total work to be done
12=time taken
12*1 =nos of pipe multiplied by work done by each pipe
1.5*x where X is the nos of pipes , On solvin We get 5 D
