    Answer: (2) 12 minutes
    A pipe can fil a tank = 20 min

    Then a pipe fill tank in 1 min = 1/20

    Another pipe fill a tank = 30 min

    Another pipe fill tank in 1 min = 1/30

    Both pipe can fill tank in 1 min = 1/20 + 1/30

    = 5/60

    = 1/12

    So, both pipe can fill a tank = 12 min

    Hence, both the pipes are opened simultaneous, then the tank will be filled in 12 minutes.
