A. 0 B. 2 C. 5 D. 10 E. 20 OA D Source: e-GMAT Normally, the factories will take 10 days to produce 2P units of car if they work h hours per day. However, if they only work h/2 hours per day, the number of days will be doubled to 20 to produce 2P units of car. Therefore, they need an additional 10 days.

A. 0 B. 2 C. 5 D. 10 E. 20 When the factories work for h hours per day, P cars are produced every 5 days, with the result that 2P cars are produced every 10 days. If the daily work-hours are CUT IN HALF -- to h/2 hours per day -- the number of days required for 2P cars will DOUBLE to 20. Since the time for 2P cars increases from 10 days to 20 days, the number of additional days required = 20-10 = 10. The correct answer is D. _________________ Mitch Hunt Private Tutor for the GMAT and GRE GMATGuruNY@gmail.com If you find one of my posts helpful, please take a moment to click on the "UPVOTE" icon.
