Answer: (c) 3 days 

Solution:-
To calculate the answer we need to get 1 man per day work and 1 woman per day work.

Let 1 man 1 day work =x
and 1 woman 1 days work = y.
=> 6x+5y = 1/6
and 3x+4y = 1/10
On solving, we get x = 1/54 and y = 1/90

(9 men + 15 women)’s 1 days work =
(9/54) + (15/90) = 1/3

9 men and 15 women will finish the work in 3 days

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 3 days.
