    Answer: (C) 120 days 

    Solution:-
    A and B together complete a work = 20 days
    Therefore, A and B can work in a day = 1/20

    A alone completes the work = 24 days
    Therefore, A alone can work in a day  = 1/24

    B alone can work in a day = 1/20 – 1/24
     = (6 – 5)/120 
     = 1/120

    Then, B alone completes the work in 120 days. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (C) 120 days.
