Ans.   A
Explanation :
In this type of question, where we have one person work and together work done. Then we can easily get the other person work just by subtracting them. As, Son's one day work = \begin{aligned} \left(\frac{1}{3}-\frac{1}{5} \right) \\ =\left(\frac{5-3}{15} \right) \\ = \frac{2}{15} \end{aligned} So son will do whole work in 15/2 days which is = \begin{aligned} 7\frac{1}{2}days \end{aligned}
