### Discussion :: Time and Work

1. Sakshi can do a piece of work in 20 days. Tanya is 25% more efficient than Sakshi. The number of days taken by Tanya to do the same piece of work is:

2.  A. 15 B. 16 C. 18 D. 25

Explanation :

Ratio of times taken by Sakshi and Tanya = 125 : 100 = 5 : 4.

Suppose Tanya takes x days to do the work.

5 : 4 :: 20 : x     x =$$\left(\frac{4*20} { 5 }\right)$$

x = 16 days.

Hence, Tanya takes 16 days to complete the work.
