By 3pm, half the job is complete, since Frances has worked fro 6h and it takes him 12h to complete the whole thing
Joan starts at 4pm, he needs only 4h to do 50% of the work (since he needs 8h for the full thing). So it finishes by 8pm

Ans : (C)

determine the induvidual rates (1/12 & 1/8 ) and calculate the corresponding hours.
it is four more hours from 4 pm so ans is 8 pm

hence C is the correct option

C. 8 p.m.
D. 10 p.m.
E. 12 p.m.

Let the total work be 24 units.

Frances can complete 2 units/hr
Joan can complete 3 units/hr

Quote:

Work done by Frances in 6 hours is 12 units ; work left for Joan is 12 units ( 24 - 12)

Time required by Jones to complete the remaining work will be 12/2 => 6 hours

Given Jones starts at 4PM , so she would complete the work at 10 PM
