7 workers ..7 cars...7 days
7 workers 1 car in 1 day
7 workers 5 cars in 5 days
1 worker 5 cars in 5*7 days = 35
5 workers 5 cars in 35/5 = 7 days

hence C

another way to approach the same problem

7 workers, 7 days, 7 cars
=> 7 workers do (1/7)th of the work(= 7 cars) per day (rate of work of all workers)
=> 1 worker does (1/(7*7))th of the work(= 7 cars) per day (rate of work for 1 worker)
=> 1 worker takes 49 days to make 7 cars
=> 1 worker takes 7 days to make 1 car
=> 1 worker takes 7*5 days to make 5 cars
=> 5 workers take (7*5)/5 days to make 5 cars

ie, 7.

7 cars in 7 days. speed is 1 (of 7 workers)
speed of each worker is 1/7

X=VT
$$5=\frac{5}{7}*T$$

T=7
