    Answer: 60 days
    Explanation:-

    Sourav and Sahil can together do a piece of work = 15 days
    Sourav and Sahil can together do a piece of work in a day = 1/15 day

    Sahil alone can do it = 20 days
    Sahil alone can do in a day = 1/20

    Sourav alone can do it in a day = 1/15 – 1/20 = (4 – 3)/60 = 1/60
    Therefore, Sourav alone can do it = 60 days
