If we consider the three groups of pumps, we see that the three groups can fill in one hour 5/6 +2/3+ 1/2=12/6=2 such tanks. Taken together, the three groups consist of 2 A's, 2 B's and 2 C's

Capacity of the tank is T.

A and B working together can fill tank in 6/5 hrs.
in one hr they can fill 5/6T

Similarly
in one hr B+C can fill 2/3T

in one hr C+A = 1/2T

Summing both sides

A+B+B+C+C+A working for 1 hour can fill 2T
2(A+B+C) working for an hour can fill 2T

A+B+C working for one hour can fill 1 T

2.What is the tens digit of the positive integer r ?
(1) The tens digit of r/10 is 3.
(2) The hundreds digit of 10r is 6[/quote]

For the second question:

Statement one tells you that when you % by 10 the tens digit is 3. You could have 380 or 320 and get 2 answers.

Statement 2 tells you when you * by 10 the hundreds digit is 6. From this statement you know the tens digit, because when you * by 10 the tens digit becomes the hundreds digit. For example, 267 * 10 = 2670
