    Answer: (4) 24
    Explanation:-
    Formula-
    M1 x D1 = M2 D2
    Where, M – number of men & D – number of days.
    Here, M1 = 36 men, D 1 = 16 days, D 2 = 24 days & M 2 = ?
    Then, 36 x 16 = 24 x ?
    ? = 36 x 16 /24
    ? = 3 x 8
    ? = 24 men
    Hence, 24 men will complete the same work in 24 days.
