#### Solution

$\text{ Aasheesh can paint a doll in 20 minutes, and Chinki can do the same in 25 minutes } .$
$\therefore \text{ Work done by Aasheesh in 1 minute } = \frac{1}{20}$
$\therefore \text{ Work done by Chinki in 1 minute } = \frac{1}{25}$
$\therefore \text{ Work done by them together } = \frac{1}{20} + \frac{1}{25}$
$= \frac{5 + 4}{100} = \frac{9}{100}$
$\therefore \text{ Work done by them in 5 minutes } = 5 \times \frac{9}{100} = \frac{9}{20}$
$\text{ Remaining work } = 1 - \frac{9}{20} = \frac{11}{20}$
$\text{ It is given that the remaining work is done by Aasheesh } .$
$\text{ The work done by Aasheesh in 20 minutes . }$
$\therefore \frac{11}{20}th \text{ work will be done by Aasheesh in } \left( 20 \times \frac{11}{20} \right) \text{ minutes or 11 minutes } .$
$\text{ Thus, the remaining work is done by Aasheesh in 11 minutes } .$
