Ram completes 60% of a task in 15 days and then takes the help of Rahim and Rachel. Rahim is 50% as efficient as Ram is and Rachel is 50% as efficient as Rahim is. In how many more days will they complete the work?
- None of these
Correct choice is (3)
. Correct Answer is
Ram completes 60% of the task in 15 days.
i.e., he completes 4% of the task in a day.
Rahim is 50% as efficient as Ram is.
Therefore, Rahim will complete 2% of the task in a day.
Rachel is 50% as efficient as Rahim is
Therefore, Rachel will complete 1% of the task in a day.
Together, Ram, Rahim and Rachel will complete 4 + 2 + 1 = 7% of the work in a day.
They have another 40% of the task to be completed.
