Solution

## The correct option is A MaheshLet us take each one of them. (a) Mahesh's Working time = 9:15 to 6:30 = 9:15 to 18:30 = 9 hours 15 minutes (18 - 9 = 9 and 30 - 15 = 15) Actual work done excluding break = 9 hours 15 minutes - 24 minutes 24 can be written as 15 + 9 = 9 hours 15 minutes - 15 minutes - 15 minutes = 9 hours - 9 minutes = 8 hours 51 minutes (b) Shivansh - Working time = 9:30 to 6:15 = 9:30 to 18:15 Since minutes in the second time is lesser than the minutes in the first time,we will first calculate 17:30 - 9:30 = 8 hours 17:30 + 30 = 18:00 18:00 + 15 = 18:15 = 8 hours + 30 minutes + 15 minutes = 8 hours 45 minutes Actual work done = 8 hours 45 minutes - 21 minutes = 8 hours 24 minutes (c) Ganesh - Working time = 9:45 to 6:30 = 9:45 to 18:30 Since minutes in the second time is lesser than the minutes in the first time,we will first calculate 17:45 - 9:45 = 8 hours 17:45 + 15 = 18:00 18:00 + 30 = 18:30 = 8 hours + 30 minutes + 15 minutes = 8 hours 45 minutes Actual work done = 8 hours 45 minutes - 22 minutes = 8 hours 23 minutes Hence, Mahesh worked the most.
