    Answer: (1) 16 days
    Explanation:-

    Sakshi  can do a piece of work = 20 days
    Tanya is 25% more efficiency than Sakshi.
    Then, the ratio of times taken by Skshi and Tanya = 125: 100 = 5: 4
    Let be the Tanya takes X days to do the work.
    Then, 5: 4 = 20/X
    X = 4 X 20/5
    X = 16 days.

    Hence, the answer is (1) 16 days.
