a) 15 days
b) 18 days
c) 20 days
d) 16 2/3 days

So, Ramesh 10 days work = 1/25 * 10 = 2/5 Now the remaining work (1 - 2/5 ) = 3/5 Ramesh and Raja one day work = 1/25 + 1/20 = 4 + 5/100 = 9/100 Remaining work completed by Ramesh and Raja = 3/5/9/100 = 3/5 * 100/9 = 20/3 Whole work is completed in = 10 + 20/3 = 50/3 = 162/3 days.
