Solution

## The correct option is C 12Let total work is LCM of (15, 20) = 60 Work done by Anil in a day = 4 units Work done by Sunil in a day = 3 units Anil worked for (t – 6) days and Sunil worked for t days. 4(t – 6) + 3t = 60 t = 12; Option (c). 2nd method:- during last 6 days sunil alone will work i.e 30% of work will be done by sunil alone. Remaining 70% of work will be done together. In one day both will do (10015)+(10020)=11.67% , then 70% will complete in 6 days. Total 6+6= 12 days.Option (c).
