For this one...
There are 15 even days. 15 odd days in a month.
On Even days, doctor works for 7 hours
On Odd days , doctor works or 7:30 hours

Nothing jumps out at me to see why 4 hours is correct... not sure how to go about this one...

I agree with the above.   Visually:  morning break after 3 hours.   Works 3.5 hours.

Then visually on the second line:  works 4:30 to the end = 4 hours.

Even days:
Start at 7.00 stop at 10.00 - 3hrs
Start at 10.30 stop at 14.00 - 3.5hrs

Odd Days:
Start at 13.00 stop at 16.00 - 3hrs
Start at 16.30 stop at 20.30 - 4hrs

You need to visualize where the break fits in the working hours

I think you understand the math but you may need to take more time understanding the situation that is described in each question.

That's correct. I'm rushing thru these, I know. My interview on Friday was very good and I got high scores on SQL and C#. I think they're going to require this kind of test. It's probably going to be timed but I'll see.

Thanks, let me look at the answers.
Yeah, now I get what the question means.
