    Answer: (2) 50/3 days

    Explanation:-
    Raja can do a piece of work = 20 days
    Therefore, Raja can do a piece of work in a day = 1/20

    Ramesh can do a piece of work = 25 days
    Therefore, Ramesh can do a piece of work in a day = 1/25

    Raja and Ramesh can do together work in a day = 1/20 + 1/25
    = (5 + 4)/100
    = 9/100
    Then, Raja and Ramesh can do together work = 100/9 days

    Ramesh can do a work in 10 days = 10/25
    Remaining work = 1 – 10/25
    = (25 – 10)/25 = 15/25
    = 3/5

    Then, Raja & Ramesh can do complete remaining work = 100 x 3/5 x 9
    = 20/3

    Therefore, the whole work is complete = 10 + 20/3
    = (30 + 20)/3
    = 50/3 days

    Hence, the answer is (2) 50/3 days.
