    Answer: (2) 36 days
    Explanation:-
    12 men can do a piece of work  = 24 days
    12 men can do work in a day = 1/24
    1 men can do work in a day = /12 x 24

    Then, 8 men can do the same work in a day = 8/12 x 24
    = 1/36
    Therefore, 8 men can do the same work = 36 days
    Hence, the answer is (2) 36 days.
