IMO B

St 2: 2/t=2/9
T=9hrs
6/9=1/t
t=1.5hrs
Since work ie 1200 components is same, I didn't consider 1200 anywhere

Question: How many hours will it take 6 identical machines, working at their constant rates, to produce 1,200 components?


CONCEPT: \(\frac{(Machine_Power * Time)}{Work} = Constant\)
i.e. \(\frac{(M_1 * T_1)}{W_1} = \frac{(M_2 * T_2)}{W_2}\)

i.e. We only need once scenario in which specific number of machines can finish work in specific time

Statement 1: Each machine produces 200 components

Time and Rate are unknown hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: Two such machines, working at their constant rates, can produce 1,200 components in 9/2 hours

One scenario with rate and work is known hence the time of second case can be calculated as the work and Machines are already known
[2*(9/2)]/1200 = 6*T/1200

i.e. T = 3/2 Hours

SUFFICIENT

Answer: option B
