    Solution Verified by Toppr

    Correct option is C)

    Let the cistern be filled by pipe A alone in x hours.

    Then, pipe B will fit it in (x+6) hours.

    ∴ x 1 ​ + (x+6) 1 ​ = 4 1 ​ ⇒ x(x+6) x+6+x ​ = 4 1 ​ ⇒x 2 −2x−24=0 ⇒(x−6)(x+4)=0

    ⇒x=6. [neglecting the negative value of x]

    Given:

    Pipe A fills the empty tank in 10 hours

    Pipe B fills the empty tank in 16 hours

    Concept Used:

    Total work = LCM of time taken by each pipe

    Calculation:

    LCM of 16 and 10 = 80

    Let total work be 80 units

    Pipe A does = 80/10 = 8 units per hour

    Pipe B does = 80/16 = 5 units per hour

    Now,

    Pipe B & A fill the tank in two hour

    ⇒ (5 + 8) units ⇒ 13 units Now,

    Each B & A will keep filling the tank for = (80/13) ≈ 6 hours

    After (6 × 2) = 12 hours, the tank will be filled by (13 × 6) = 78 units.

    2 units are yet to be filled

    On, 13th hour B will be opened.

    It will take 2/5 hour for B to fill the remaining tank entirely.

    Total time = 12 + 2/5 =

    ∴ The empty tank will be filled in

    1225 hours 1225 hours.
