A takes 20min .... B takes 30min to fill the cistern .....by lcm method total work is 60 units hence efficency of A is 3 unit per day AND B's efficiency is 2unit per day ............ B works for 18 hours .Therefor b does 2*18 unit of work =36....... remaning work 24 units ....... this is the work done by A ......24/3 = 8 hrs answer

in question no7 ....... consider total work is equal to 6 units ....... hence a+b+c efficiency is 1unit per hr ...... they together work for 2hrs ....... rest of the work(4units) is done by a+b in 7 hrs .... a+b effiency is 4/7 unit per hr .................... now find c's effiency that is (1-4/7)=3/7 here we subtract 4/7 from 1 bcoz a+b+c effieiency is 1 ...............c will do the whole work in =6/(3/7)= 14 hrs
