Thus the best answer is B.

Bunuel wrote: E. 100 minutes The rate of 5 machines is 1 widget per minute, so the rate of 100 machines is 1 x 20 = 20 widgets per minute, so it will take 100 machines 100/20 = 5 minutes to make 100 widgets.Answer: B _________________

We know M1T1/W1 = M2 T2 /W25 machines 5 minutes to make 5 widgets.So, 5 * 5 /5 = 100 * T2 /100=>T2 = 5 (option b ) D.S
