Solution

## The correct option is B 50Hiring one more assistant increases the time available for stitching buttons and button holes. Max. No. of shirts those cutter can cut for JASMINE in a day = 120020 = 60 Time required by Tailors to stitch 60 shirts = (60 × 60) = 3600 mins, whereas time available is 3000 mins only. Hence maximum No. of shirts that can be stitched in a day = 300060 = 50 Time consumed by assistant to stitch buttons to 50 shirts = (50 × 50) = 750 mins Time available for assistant = (3 × 10 × 60) = 1800 mins. Hence 50 shirts can be completed in a day.
