Best answer

Option(a) 8


LCM(11,20,55) = 220.  

Let total  work is 220 units such that, 

Work done by A in 1 day =  220/11 = 20  units 

 Work done by B in 1 day =  220/20 = 11  units  

Work done by C in 1 day =  220/55 = 4  units  

First day, A and B work and completes 20+11=31 units of work 

Second day, A and C work and completes 20+4=24 units of work  

So, in every 2 days, 31+24=55 units of work gets completed. in 8 days, 4×55=220 units of work gets completed.  

Therefore, ans is 8 days
