    Answer: (3) 3/2 days

    Explanation:-
    1 man done work =  6 x 6 x 9 hours
    = 324 hours
    let the number of days be = X
    Total time taken by  men=12 x 8 x X x 1
    = 108 X nours

    Total hour taken by women=12 x 8 x (6/8) X
    = 72 X

    Total time taken by boys=12 x 8 x (6/12)X
    = 48 X
    after equating hours then,
    324 = 108 X + 72 X + 48 X
    324 = X (108 + 74 + 48)
    324 = 228 X
    X = 324/228
    X = 3/2 days
    Hence, the answer is (3) 3/2 days.
