(A) 0 (B) 1 (C) 2 (D) 3 (E) 4
2.if p/q= 1/3; q/3= 2; r/s= 1/2; s/t= 1/3; and t/u= 1/4, what is pqr/stu ?
Distance Speed and Time-
Mr. Ghosh usually arrives at his office 15 min late. On a particular day, he
reduces his speed by 25% and hence arrives 45 min late instead. If Mr. Ghosh has
to reach office on time, by what percentage should he increase his usual speed?
Time Work Rate-
1. A and B can build a wall alone in 12 days and 20 days respectively, working 8
hr/day in two shifts, from 9 AM – 1 PM and then 2 AM – 6 PM. If the work is
started on Jan 1, on which day and at what time will the work be completed if
i. both of them work together on all days
ii. A works alone on Jan 1, followed by B alone on Jan 2, and cycle repeats
iii. B works alone on Jan 1, followed by A alone on Jan 2, and cycle repeats
iv. A is assisted by B in the first half every day, but leaves in the second half
2. A and B, working together, take 12 days to complete a work. B and C, working
together, take 20 days to complete the same work. C and A, working together, take
15 days to complete the same work. In how many days can A, B and C, working
together, complete the same work?
3. A can build an entire wall in 6 days. However, B the demolition man can break
the entire wall in 15 days. In how many days will the wall be built if

10 more men who are equally efficient join the work. The project was completed
how many days before its scheduled date?
5. A team of 2 men and 5 women finish a work in 42 days. The same work is
done by a team of 3 men and 2 women in 50 days. How many women need to join
1 man in order to complete the same work in 75 days?
6. A team of 35 equally efficient men are scheduled to build a tunnel in certain

Hence, no man leaves. On what day and time will the tunnel be built?
iii. Post Jan 6, the project manager still wants to complete the project on time.
To achieve this, each man must increase his efficiency by what percentage
to the nearest integer?
