Solution

'X’ and ‘Y’ are two persons doing the same amount of work against gravity in climbing to the top of the building. Work done against gravity depends on the vertical distance through which the body is lifted and is independent of the path travelled to achieve that height. Both men travel the same distance vertically, so the work done by them against gravity is equal.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
