15 women = 4/5 × 15 men = 12 men
i.e. 28 men + 15 women = 28 men + 12 men = 40men
1 work done by men = 16 × 25

**Answer: Option 'B'**

**Let ‘x’ be the initial number of men
Then, 1 work done = x × 40
Then, x × 40 = (x + 8 ) (40 – 10)
40x = 30x + 240
10x = 240
Therefore, x = 240/10 = 24 men.**

18.
