    Answer: (1) 28 days

    Explanation:-
    1 man = 2 women
    1 woman = 2 boy
    Then, 1 man = 2 x 2 boy = 4 boy
    1 man, 1 woman and 1 boy can finish a work together = 4 days
    4 boys, 2 boys and 1 boys can finish a work together = 4 days
    Then, 7 boys can finish a work together = 4 days

    Therefore, 1 boy can finish  a work = 4 x 7 = 28 days

    Hence, the answer is (1) 28 days.
