7. Two taps A and B can deliver water to a drum at the rate of 4 lit/min and 6 lit/min respectectively. If capacity of drum is 2400 li then what part of drum will remain empty after one hour of starting of both taps?
1/2
3/4
2/3
1/5
1/4
Option B
Total water delivered to the dam in one hour =(4+6)x60(1 hr=60 min) =600 liters
Filled part of dam =600/2400=1/4
Empty part of dam=1-1/4=3/4

8. Three pipes A,B and C can fill a cistern in 12 hr. 16 hr and 20 hr. respectively. all the pipes are opened together and after working two hours pipes B and c are closed. Find time taken by pipe A to fill the remaining part of cistern.
7.3

6.5
5.9

Option A
capacity of tank=L.C.M of (12,16,20)=240unit/hr.
Efficiency of pipe A =240/12=20 unit/hr.
Efficiency of pipe B =240/16=15 units/hr.
Efficiency of pipe C =240/20=12 unit/hr.
Let pipe A taken x hour to fill the remaning part 20(x +2)+15 x 2 + 12x 2=240
=20x + 40+30+24=240
=20x=146
=x=7.3hrs
