## FAQs on Time & Work CAT Previous Year Questions with Answer PDF

 1. What is the formula to calculate work in the context of time and work problems?
Ans. The formula to calculate work is work = rate x time. It represents the amount of work done by a person or a group of people in a given time period.
 2. How can we calculate the total time taken by multiple people working together on a task?
Ans. To calculate the total time taken by multiple people working together on a task, we can use the formula: 1/(total rate) = 1/time1 + 1/time2 + 1/time3 + ..., where time1, time2, time3, etc., represent the individual times taken by each person.
 3. Can you explain the concept of efficiency in time and work problems?
Ans. Efficiency in time and work problems refers to the rate at which a person or a group of people can complete a task. It is calculated as the ratio of work done to the time taken. Higher efficiency means completing the task in less time.
 4. How can we calculate the number of days required to complete a task if the work done per day is given?
Ans. To calculate the number of days required to complete a task when the work done per day is given, we can use the formula: time = total work / work done per day. It gives us the number of days needed to finish the task based on the work done each day.
 5. Can you explain the concept of work done by a person in one day in time and work problems?
Ans. The work done by a person in one day represents the amount of work that can be completed by an individual in a single day. It is calculated by dividing the total work by the number of days required to complete the task. This value is often used to determine the rate at which work is done or the efficiency of a person in time and work problems.
