    Answer: (4) 45 days
    Explanation:-

    Let be the B take time to complete the work = X days
    and A take time to complete the work = 3X/2 days

    Both together can work = 1/X + 2/3X = 18
    = (3 + 2)/3X = 18
    5/3X = 18
    X = 18 x 5/3
    X = 30 days
    Then, A can work complete = 30 x 3/2 = 45 days

    Hence, the answer is 45 days.
