Numerical Reasoning - break

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...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Please put the correct category for your questions. This has nothing to do with C#.

Coming to the answer , There are 4 working slots
Even Day : 7am - 10am which is 3 hours
Even Day: 10:30 am - 2 PM which is 3.5 hours
Odd Day: 1pm - 4pm which his 3 hours
Odd Day: 4:30pm-8:30pm which is 4 hours

So answer is 4 hours .

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.
