    Answer: (3) 12/5 days
    Explanation:-

    A completes piece of work = 4 days
    Therefore, A can do work in a day = ¼

    B completes piece of work = 6 days
    Therefore, B can do work in a day = 1/6

    A and B can do work together in a day = 1/4 + 1/6
    (6 + 4)/24 = 10/24
    = 5/12
    Thus, A and B can do work complete = 12/5 days

    Hence, the answer is (3) 12/5 days.
