 A) $$\Large 24\frac{1}{2}$$ days B) 12 days C) $$\Large 12\frac{1}{4}$$ days D) 14 days

 B) 12 days

B's 1 day's work = $$\Large \frac{1}{28}$$

Therefore, Same money is sufficient to pay the wages of both for

= $$\Large \frac{1}{\frac{1}{21}+\frac{1}{28}}$$

= $$\Large \frac{21 \times 28}{21+28} = \frac{21 \times 28}{49} = 3 \times 4$$ = 12 days
