Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Practice Question

Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training sample question
Group A
Both groups are equally good
Impossible to answer
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The correct answer is Group A.
Despite the elaborate story given, this is a basic work-rate question.
You need to be familiar with the formula: Work-rate = Work/Time.
We need to calculate the work-rate of each group:
Work-rate A = 12 stories/3 weeks = 4 stories/week
Work-rate B = 27 stories/7.5 weeks = 3.6 stories/week
The work-rate of group A is greater than the work-rate of group B, meaning groups A will finish the project first.
