**b. 24 min**

**c. 18 min**

**d. 12 min**

**9. One fill pipe A takes 4 minutes more to fill the cistern than two fill pipes A and B opened together to fill it.

**b. 6 min**

**c. 5 min**

**d. none of these**

**10. Two fill pipes A and B can fill a cistern in 12 and 16 minutes respectively. Both fill pipes are opened together, but 4 minutes before the cistern is full, one pipe A, is closed. How much time will the cistern take to fill.**
