Expert Answer:

Monkey climbes 3 meter in 1 minute and slips 2 meter in next minute.
This means that in 2 minutes monkey climbs a distance of (3 m -2 m) = 1 meter.
So in 2 minutes,distance covered by the monkey will be 1 meter.
Hence to cover 57 meter the monkey will take 2×57 minutes=114 minutes
And in the next minute the monkey climbs another 3 meter and reaches 60 meters,so the time taken by the monkey to reach tower of 60 meter will be 115 minutes
i.e. 114 +1 minutes =115 minutes
