    Answer: (a) 5 days.
    Explanation:-
    A and B can do a work = 12 days
    A and B can do a work in a day = 1/12 day

    B and C can do same work = 15 days
    B and C can do same work in a day = 1/15

    B and C can do same work = 20 days
    B and C can do same work = 1/20

    Therefore, A, B and C work together will complete the work in a day = (1/12 + 1/15 + 1/20)/2
    = 12/60 = 1/5

    Hence, A, B and C work together will complete the work in 5 days.
