Solution

The correct option is **B**

12 days** **

(A + B)'s 1 day's work = 115 + 110 = 16

Work done by A and B in 2 days = 16 × 2 = 13

Remaining work = 1 - 13 = 23

Now, 115 work is done by A in 1 day.

So, 23 work will be done by A in 15 × 23 = 10 days

Hence, the total time taken = 10 + 2 = 12 days.
