Show Answer
Correct Answer: 2
Let the rates of work of each human and each robot be H and R respectively (both in units/day).
$15 \mathrm{H}+5 \mathrm{R}=\frac{1}{30}$ …… (1)
$5 \mathrm{H}+15 \mathrm{R}=\frac{1}{60}$ ……(2)
$3(1)-(2)=>40 \mathrm{H}=\frac{1}{12}$
$\mathrm{H}=\frac{1}{480}$
In a day, 15 humans can complete 15H i.e. $\frac{1}{32} t h$ of the job.
15 humans can complete the job in 32 days
