    Shantanu's 1 day's work = 1/2
    Manu's 1 day's work =1/10
    Shantanu's share : Manu's share =(1/12) : (1/10)

    Correct Option: A

    Shantanu's 1 day's work = 1/2
    Manu's 1 day's work =1/10
    Shantanu's share : Manu's share =(1/12) : (1/10)
    = (5/60) : (6/60)
    = 5 : 6

    A's 1 day's work = 1/9
    B's 1 day's work = 1/15
    A's share : B's share = (1/9) : (1/15)

    Correct Option: B

    A's 1 day's work = 1/9
    B's 1 day's work = 1/15
    A's share : B's share = (1/9) : (1/15)
    = (5/45) : (3/45)
    = 5 : 3

    Work done by (P + Q) = 7/22
    Work done by R = 1 - (7/ 22) = (22-7)/22 = 15/22
    ∴ (P + Q)'s share : R's share = (7/22) : (15/22)

    Correct Option: A

    Work done by (P + Q) = 7/22
    Work done by R = 1 - (7/ 22) = (22-7)/22 = 15/22
    ∴ (P + Q)'s share : R's share = (7/22) : (15/22) = 7 : 15
    R's share = (15/22) x 1100 = 15 x 50 = ₹ 750
