Answer: (a) 12.5
Explanation:-
A can do a work = 20 days
A can do work in a day = 1/20

B can do work = 30 days
B can do work in a day = 1/30

A and B together can do work in a day = 1/20 + 1/30
= 5/60 = 1/12
A, B and C together can do work = 8 days
C can do it = 1/8 – 1/12 = 1/24

The ratio A, B and C = 20: 30: 24 = 10: 15: 12

C gets = 12 x 37.50/37 = Rs.12.16
