    Answer: (1) 15 days
    Explanation:
    Karan, Kabir and Kartik can together finish a project  =  4 days
    Karan, Kabir  and Kartik can together work in a day = 1/4

    Karan can finish it project = 12 days
    Karan can do work in a day = 1/12

    Kabir can finish it project = 10 days
    Kabir can do work in a day = 1/10

    karan  &  Kabir can do work in same day = 1/12 + 1/10
    = (10 + 12)/120
    = 22/120
    = 11/60

    Kartik can work in a day = 1/ 4- 11/60
    = (60 – 44)/240
    = 16/240
    = 2/30
    = 1/15
    Therefore, Kartik can finish the project = 15 days.
    Hence, the answer is (1) 15 days.
