Solution

The correct option is A 30 hours
Given : Volume of Cuboidal reservoir = 108 m3
Rate of pouring water into cuboidal reservoir = 60 litres/min
=601000m3/minute[1liter=11000m3]
60×601000m3 water filled in reservoir will take = 100060×60 hours
1m3 water filled in reservoir will take=100060×60 hours
108 m3 water filled in reservoir will take=108×100060×60 hours=30 hours
It will take 30 hours to fill the reservoir.
