**Explanation:-**

Ram and Shyam together can finish a job = 8 days

Therefore, Ram and Shyam can a job in a day = 1/8

Ram can do the same job = 12 days

Therefore, Ram can do the same job in a day = 1/12

Then, Shyam can do the job in a day = 1/8 – 1/12

= (3 – 2)/24

= 1/24

Therefore, Shyam can do complete the same job = 24 days.
