@bobble I am sorry but this is totally from memory but have been verified from multiple institutes about the figures that have been provided. They do not release question papers for such questions. Incase you find any discrepancy in the question please notify me. — gateprep 6 mins ago
I'm sorry, I don't believe you that the question is from memory
But not sure there's anything I can do... does this fall under "needs attribution"?

Q: How to solve this problem?

TheFinanceOfficerIf 6 men and 8 boys can do a piece of work in 10 days while 26 men and 48 boys can do the same in 2 days, the time taken by 15 men and 20 boys in doing the same type of work will be what? This is taken from a Bank PO question paper. I am unable to frame the equations and solve in such case. It is...

Lots of bank PO questions it seems...

@oAlt ooh, an antique
i'm writing printer's devilry clues for a change
i wonder if one could make a crossword with just that type of clue
12:27 PM
I remember someone did that

@Jafe ikr? But now I think it was for the better: needed to pick up more clue experience
Ooh, I haven't taken a liking to printer's devilry clues but that's just me

Q: A problem about a topic from time and work

Knowledge SeekerA Contractor employed 30 men to complete the project in 100 days. But later on he realized that just after 25 days only 20% of the work had been completed.

@Stiv "would peck 'er"
@msh210 That is precisely my intention :) Wasn't sure if the wordplay would be considered strictly 'proper', but you obviously grasped what I was getting at!
Idk if it's proper, but combining the homophone indicator and "h removal" (i don't know if there's a term for that) sure is clever!

The CCCC info message got unpinned again - not sure who to ping to resolve that
I've got an idea for a future CCCC but I wanna make sure something like it hasn't been down before (or at least isn't in the archive)
any room owner (italic) or moderator (blue) can pin a message

Q: Endless party… famous last words

Each missing song was, as a single, in the top ten in the U.K. or the U.S.. The twelve songs have something else also in common, as you'll discover in t...
