    Answer:  (4) 10 days

    Explanation:-
    A, B and C together can finish 1/2 of a work = 2 days
    Therefore, A, B and C together can finish a work = 2 x 2
     = 4 days

    B and C together can finish 3/10 part of the work = 2 days
    Therefore, B and C can finish 3/10 part of the work = 10 x 2/3
     = 20 /3 days

    So, A  alone can complete the whole work = 20/(5 – 3)
    = 20 /2 
     = 10 days

    Hence, the correct answer is option (4) 10 days.
