This is a problem of compound proportion!

We generaly know that if number of men increases then food will be for less days i-e if men increases then days and food stock both decreases!

We arrange data as under:

we write it as;

$\frac{3}{x}=\frac{6}{18}\times \frac{20}{40}$

$x= \frac{18\times 40\times 3}{6\times 20}= 19$

So, they can eat it upto 18 days ———— option b is correct
