Solution

## The correct option is D 10 daysIf 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.
