Discussion :: Time and Work

A takes twice as much time as B or thrice as much time as C to finish a piece of work. Working together, they can finish the work in 2 days. B can do the work alone in:
Answer : Option B
Explanation :
Suppose A, B and C take x,\(\frac {X } { 2 } \)and\(\frac {X } { 3} \)days respectively to finish the work.
Then,[\( \frac { 1 } { X } \)+\( \frac { 2 } { X } \)+\( \frac { 3 } { X } \)]=\(\frac { 1 } { 2 } \)
\( \frac { 6 } { X } \)=\(\frac { 1 } { 2 } \)
x = 12.
So, B takes (12/2) = 6 days to finish the work.
