15. 3 taps P, Q and R can fill a tank in 10,20 and 30 minutes respectively.If A is open all the time and Q and R are open for 1 hour each alternatively the tank will be fill in?

A. 7 hrs B. 7 hrs 30 mins C. 8 hrs D. 7 hrs 50 mins

Answer Answer: Option A Explanation: A+B in 1 hour = (1/10)+1/20) = (2+1)/20 = 3/20
A+C in 1 hour =(1/10)+(1/30)=(3+1)/20 = 4/30
In 2 hour => (3/20) + (4/30) = (9+8)/60 = 17/60
part filled in 6 hours = 3*(17/60) = 17/20
Remaining part = 1- (17/20) = (20-17)/20 = 3/20 (filled by A and B) ........ 1 hour
total time taken to fill the tank = 6+1 = 7 hours.
