Let the number of men working to build the house in 4 days be x
Since it takes 15 more men to build the house in 1 day
(x+15)*1 = x*4
Solving for x, x=5

Hence it will take 20 men to build the house in 1 day(Option D)

1/4=x
1=x+15

1/4(x+15)=x
x=5 is number of people who do work in 4 days
so, 5+15=20 is an answer

let 1/4x=individual daily rate for each of x men working on 4 day house
1/4x*(x+15)=1
x=5
x+15=20
