    Answer: (2) 10 hrs.
    Explanation:-
    Formula –
    M1 H1 D1 = M2 H2 D2
    Where, M – Number of men, H – number of hours   & D – number of days.

    Here, M1 =   15, H1 = 8, D1 = 20
    And  M2 = 20, D2 = 12   & H1 = ?
    Put these values in formula,
    15 x 8 x 20 = 20 x 12 x H2
    H2 = 2400/240
    H2 = 10 hrs.
    Hence, the answer is (2) 10 hrs.
