    Polly can make 100 baskets in 6 days, so her work rate is 100/6 = 16.67 baskets per day. Kallu can make 100 baskets in 12 days, so his work rate is 100/12 = 8.33 baskets per day. When working together, their combined work rate is 16.67 + 8.33 = 25 baskets per day. Therefore, it would take them 100/25 = 4 days to make 100 baskets together.
