Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 24 days

Given:

Number of days of food stock for 240 men = 25 days

Concept used:

(M1 × D1 × H1)/W1 = (M2 × D2 × H2)/W2

Calculation:

M2 = 240 + 10 = 250

⇒ 240 × 25 = 250 × D2

⇒ D2 = (240 × 25)/250 = 24 days

∴ The number of days in which the food stock will be exhausted is 24 days.
