Show Answer

Correct Answer: Option: 2

Let the work be of 40 units

Amount of work done by Anil in one day = 40/20=2 units

Amount of work done by Sunil in one day = 20/20=1 units

Bimal does 10% work i.e. 4 units.

Rest 40-4=36 units is done by Anil and Sunil.

Let Anil took x days. Therefore, Sunil took (x-3) days. Therefore,

$2\times x+1\times \left( x-3 \right)=36$

Or x = 13 days.
