Let Ram be able to complete the job in N days.
He works 1/N of the job  per day.  In 12 days, he does  12 / N of the job.
   12/ N = 40/100    =>  N = 30
So Ram does  1/30 th of job each day.

let Ravi work  1/M th of the job each day.  He can finish the job in M days, alone.
The combined working productivity of the two together = 1/30 + 1/ M  per day.
The remaining part of the job after Ram works for 12 days:   100% - 40$ = 60%

   Ram and Ravi complete  60/100 of the job in 12 days
         60/100 = 12 * [ 1/30 + 1/M]
                    = 12/30 +  12 / M
     =>  12 / M = 60/100 - 12/ 30
       =>    1 / M = 5/100 - 1/30  = 1/20 - 1/30 = 1/60
       => Ravi does work in 60 days.  His productivity is 1/60 per day.

productivity of ram -  productivity of ravi = 1/30 - 1/60 = 1/60
     additional efficiency of Ram over Ravi = (1/60) / (1/60)  * 100 = 100%

Ram is twice as productive as Ravi.  So Ram is  100% more efficient as compared to Ravi.
