When working together A, B and C would take $$1/\frac{1}{(14} + \frac{1}{7} + \frac{1}{2})$$ time to produce 200 widgets, which is $$\frac{14}{10}$$, so to make 100, it takes $$\frac{1}{2}$$ that time, $$\frac{7}{10} = 42 mins$$

A. 32 minutes
B. 42 minutes
C. 84 minutes
D. 90 minutes
E. 96 minutes

Efficiency of A = $$\frac{200}{14}$$ Or $$\frac{100}{7}$$ $$\frac{Units}{Hour}$$

Efficiency of B = $$\frac{200}{7}$$ $$\frac{Units}{Hour}$$

Efficiency of C = 200/2 Or $$100$$ $$\frac{Units}{Hour}$$

Combined efficiency of A , B and C is ( $$\frac{100}{7}$$ + $$\frac{200}{7}$$ + $$100$$) $$\frac{Units}{Hour}$$ = $$\frac{1000}{7}$$

So, Time required to complete 100 units is 100/(1000/7) Hours

Or, 100 x 7/1000 x 60 minutes = 42 Minutes

Hence correct answer will be (B) 42 Minutes...
