Answer: (3) 8 days

Explanation:-
Formula-
M1D1H1 = M2D2H2
Where, M = number of men, D = number of days and H = number hours.

Given,
M1 = 16, D1 = 12, H1 = 14, M2 = 28, H2 = 12 and D2 = ?

Then, 16 x 12 x 14 = 28 x 12 x D2
D2 = 16 x 12 x 14 /28 x 12
= 16/2
= 8 days
Then, 28 men working 12 hours a day, take to complete the work in 8 days.

Hence, the answer is (c) 8 days.
