2^{nd}+2ndlast=19???.

Therefore 8+11=19

3.two watches r set together one was faster by 1min per hr.other was slower by 2min per hr.after sometime the two watches had 1 hr difference .after how many hrs they showed one hr diff?

Ans)20 hrs

Soln.work done by pipe A in unit time=1/6

Work done by pipe B in unit time=7+1/2=2/15

Pipe C (draining pipe)=1/8

=1/30

Therefore 30 min.
