### Question 1

### Question 2

Tap M can fill a cistern in 12 mins. And, a tap N can empty it in 7 mins. In how many minutes will the cistern be emptied if both the taps are opened together when the tank is $6/13$^{th} already empty?

**A**

**Ans: a**

1 filled cistern can be emptied in ${12 × 7}/{12 - 7}$ mins. So $1 - 6/13$ = $7/13$ filled cistern can be emptied in ${12 × 7}/{12 - 7}$ × $7/13$ = ${588/65}$, which is same as: $9{3/65}$ mins.
