Official Solution:

A. 10 hours
B. 14 hours
C. 18 hours
D. 20 hours
E. 21 hours

One man would complete the job in $$35*3 = 105$$ hours. Five people would complete the job in $$\frac{105}{5} = 21$$ hours. $$35 - 21 = 14$$ hours would be saved.

I solved this by putting a proportion together:
3/x= 1/35 and 5/x=unknown, x are being cancelled out and unknown= 1/21, which 14 hr difference from 1/35.
