Solution

The correct option is D 10 days
If there are less people on the team, the time taken to finish the assignment will be more.

This is a case of inverse proportion.
If one person leaves the team, there will be 5-1 = 4 people on the team.

Using the formula for inverse proportion,
Number of team members × Number of days = constant
5 × 8 = 4 × Number of days
Number of days required = 5×84=10 days.
