Solution

## The correct option is D None of the aboveNumber of workers left on 10th day = 48 + (10 - 1)(-4) [∵ a = 48, d = -4] = 48 + 9 × (-4) = 48 - 36 = 12 Now, work done by 48 workers in 1 day =111 ∴ Work done by 1 worker in 1 day =111×48 ∴ Work done by 12 worker in 1 day =1211×48=144 Then, time taken by the workers left, to complete the entire work, is 44 days.
