Solution

The correct option is **C** 30 minutes

If more people help out in the tower construction, it will take lesser time.

∴ This is a case of inverse proportion.

Using the formula for inverse proportion,

Number of blocks× Time required= constant

⇒ 4 × 60 = 8 × Time required

∴ Time required = 4 × 608

= 30 minutes
