Solution

## The correct option is A Proportion of work done by Rajesh , Mahesh and Suresh is 210,310 and 510 respectively. Rate of doing work are in the ratio – 1:2:3 ∴ The time required to complete the work are in the ratio - 1 : 12:13 Let, Rajesh complete the entire work in ‘x’ days. ∴ Work done by Rajesh in 1 day = 1x According to Question, (1x)×12=210 ⇒ x = 60 days. Thus, Mahesh and Suresh will complete the work in 30 and 20 days respectively. ∴ Total work done by three of them in 8 days = (160+260+360)×8=45
