If 24 men working for 12 hrs a day can do a work in 16 days, in how many days can 8 men working 6 hrs a day do it?

12 days

24 days

36 days

96 days

24 men – 12 hrs – 16 days 8 men – 6 hrs – ? days (n) n =16 X (12 / 6) X (24 / 8) ( since no of hrs reduced no of days has to increase and no of men reduced also increases no of days i.e., inverse proportional) => n = 96 days.
