    Answer: (1) 8 days
    Explanation:-
    6 men = 10 woman
    then, 1 man = 10/6 woman
    1 man = 5/3 woman.
    Formula-
    M 1 D 1 = M 2 D 2
    Where, M = number of men   &  D = number of days.
    M 1 = 10 women , D 1 = 24 days, M 2 = 12 men and 10 women     & D 2= ?
    Then,   10 x 24  = (10 + 5 x 12/3) x D 2
    240 = (10  + 20) x D 2
    240 = 30 x D 2
    D 2 = 240/30
    D 2 = 8 days
    Hence, the answer is (1) 8 days.
