    Answer: (3) 36 fays

    Explanation:-
    A and B can together do a piece of work = 18 days
    A and B can together do a piece of work in a day = 1/18

    A alone can do it = 36 days
    A alone can do work in a day = 1/36

    B alone can do the work in a day = 1/ 18 – 1/36
    = (2 – 1) /36
    = 1/36
    Then, B can complete the work = 36 days.

    Hence, the answer is (3) 36 days.
