Answer: (3) 2 hours 55 minutes

Explanation:-
Ram completes a task = 7 hours
Shyam also completes the same task = 5 hours

They will take time work together  = 5 x 7/(5 + 7)
= 35/12
= 2 hours 11 x 60/12
= 2 hours 55 minutes

Then, they will take 2 hours 55 minutes to complete work together.

Hence, the answer is (4) 2 hours 55 minutes.
