Dear REDNAM vishnu tejaswi,

In 2 Minutes the money climbs 1 Meter in all therefore in 20 minutes it would get top the top of the tree which is at 10 meters !!!

Hi Rendam,

The monkey effectively climbs 1 mt in 2 mins.

This would heppen till it reaches 7mts.

So it would take 14 mins for this.

In the next one min, it would climb 3 mts and reach the top.

So total time taken would be 15 mins.

its quite simple.consider the distance covered bu the monkey in 2 min.first it climbs 3m and then he climbs -2m(slips 2m).therefore in total he climbs 1m in 2min.therefore for 10m,it will take 20 min........ :-)
