**Q13. A cistern, when full, is emptied by a waste pipe in 30 minutes, but if a tap (filling source) is opened, it takes 40 minutes, to empty the cistern. How long the cistern will take to become full when only filling pipe is working?**

140 minutes

120 minutes

160 minutes

180 minutes

150 minutes

Solution:

Let waste pipe be A and filling pipe be B.

‘A’ alone can empty the cistern = 30 minutes

If B is also opened = – A + B can empty = 40 minutes

LCM of (30, 40) = 120

Efficiency of A = 120/30 = 4

Efficiency of A – B = 120/40 = 3

So, efficiency of B = 4 – 3 = 1

So, B alone can fill the cistern = 120/1 = 120 minutes

‘A’ alone can empty the cistern = 30 minutes

If B is also opened = – A + B can empty = 40 minutes

LCM of (30, 40) = 120

Efficiency of A = 120/30 = 4

Efficiency of A – B = 120/40 = 3

So, efficiency of B = 4 – 3 = 1

So, B alone can fill the cistern = 120/1 = 120 minutes

**Q14. Pipe A can fill a cistern in 6 hours and pipe B can fill it in 8 hours. Both the pipes are opened simultaneously, but after two hours, pipe A is closed. How many hours will B take to fill the remaining part of the cistern?**

2 hours

10/3 hours

8/3 hours

4 hours

6 hours

**Q15. A tank is filled in 5 hours when three pipes A, B and C are opened together. The pipe C is twice as fast as B and B is twice as fast as A. How much time will pipe A alone take to fill the tank?**

20 hours

25 hours

35 hours

28 hours

16 hours
