Answer : 4. "7"
Explanation :

Answer: D) 7 Explanation: Let 1 woman's 1 day work = x. Then, 1 man's 1 day work = x/2 and 1 child's 1 day work  x/4. So, (3x/2 + 4x + + 6x/4) = 1/7 28x/4 = 1/7 => x = 1/49 1 woman alone can complete the work in 49 days. So, to complete the work in 7 days, number of women required = 49/7 = 7.
