Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 10 days

Given:

Days taken to built a house = 80 days

Men worked for first 70 days = 100 

Men worked after 70 days  = 200 

Formula Used:

Men1 × Efficiency1 × Days1/Work1 = Men2 × Efficiency2 × Days2/Work2

Calculation:

After 70 days

The remaining work completed by 200 men in 10 days

⇒ 100 men will complete this work in

⇒ 200/100 × 10 = 20 days

⇒ The delay in work

⇒ (70 + 20) - 80 = 10 days

∴ If he didn't hire extra workers there will be delay of 10 days.
