D. Rs. 6000
E. None of these

Q5. D charges 75% of what A charges per day for tables, 80% of what B charges per day for Ladders and 75% of what C charges per day for chairs . In how many minimal days 48 tables, 48 ladders and 48 chairs can be made so that making charge is the lowest in total (each item can be made by different persons and each item is made at separate phases)?
A. 16
B. 18
C. 22
D. 14
E. 10

## Solution

Q1. Correct Option: A
In a day A, B and C together can make:
Tables = (4 + 8 + 6) = 18
Ladders = (6 + 6 + 8) = 20
Chairs = (8 + 10 + 4) = 22
After 3 days the amount of job left:
Tables = [86 – (3 × 18)] = 32
Ladders = [100 – (3 × 20)] = 40
Chairs = [114 – (3 × 22)] = 48
In a day A, B and D together can make:
Tables = (4 + 8 + 4) = 16
Ladders = (6 + 6 + 8) = 20
Chairs = (8 + 10 + 6) = 24
∴ The required number of days = 2

Q2. Correct Option: B
A will charge:
= (96/4 x 400) + (72/6 x 200) + (120/8 x 300)
= Rs. (9600 + 2400 + 4500) = Rs. 16500
B will charge:
= (96/8 x 500) + (72/6 x 250) + (120/10 x 300)
= Rs. (6000 + 3000 + 3600) = Rs. 12600
C will charge:
= (96/6 x 300) + (72/8 x 100) + (120/4 x 200)
= Rs. (4800 + 900 + 6000) = Rs. 11700
∴ C will charge the lowest.

Q3. Correct Option: A
A and B together in 1 day can make:
Tables = (4 + 8) = 12
Ladders = (6 + 6) = 12
Chairs = (8 + 10) = 18
C and D together in 1 day can make:
Tables = (6 + 4) = 10
Ladders = (8 + 8) = 16
Chairs = (4 + 6) = 10
75% of the order means:
Tables = 120 × 0.75 = 90
Ladders = 96 × 0.75 = 72
Chairs = 240 × 0.75 = 180
In two days the amount of work done:
Tables = 22
Chairs = 28
The maximum number of days needed to complete any item is the answer.
∴ the time to complete 75% of chair consignment:
180/28 = 6 rounds + 12 chairs
6 rounds means 6 × 2 = 12 days
12 chairs will be completed by A & B combinedly in 12/18 days
= 2/3 day
∴ Total days Required = 12 + 2/3 = 38/2 Day

Q4. Correct Option: D
D’s charge per day for –
Making tables = (400 × 0.75) = Rs. 300
Making ladders = (250 × 0.8) = Rs. 200
Making chairs = (200 × 0.75) = Rs. 150
∴ The reqd. answer = (48/4 x 300) + (48/8 x 200) + (48/6 x 150)
= Rs. (3600 + 1200 + 1200) = Rs. 6000

Q5. Correct Option: C
First see who is charging lowest in respective items.
For tables both C and D charge Rs. 300 per day but C has a better efficiency. So, C will be selected to make the tables.
For ladders C will be selected as he is charging Rs. 100 per day.
For chairs D will be selected as he is charging Rs. 150 per day.
C will take 48/6 = 8 days to make tables.
C will take 48/8 = 6 days to make ladders.
D will take 48/6 = 8 days to make chairs.
∴ The required answer = (8 + 6 + 8) = 22 days
