    Answer: (2) 3 minutes

    Explanation:-
    Let the time by a tap to fill the tank = X min.
    If 2/3 portion of a water tank is filled up in 2 minutes,
    Then,  X x 2/5 = 2
    2 X = 2 x 5
    X = 2 x 5/2
    X = 5

    Then, total time taken by a tap to fill the tank = 5
    Then, the more time = 5- 2 = 3 min

    Hence, the answer is (2) 3 minutes.
