So,one man joins on day till the 20th day implies

1+2+3+4....20 =1 MANDAY + 2 MANDAYS+3 MANDAYS ...20 MANDAYS

= Arithmetic progression(formula) = (N(N+1))/2= 20*21/2= 210

So 210 is the total amount of work.(units of work)

Now
team of 7 men work regularly, the work will be completed exactly in n days.
this means total amount of work done by these 7 men team= 7*n = 7n units of work

Now 210 = 7n
n= 30


So OA D



Press Kudos if it helps!!
