2 typists!!! Because if two typists can together produce 2 typed pages in a span of two minutes then each typist can by themselves produce 1 pages every 2 minutes so...
1 typist: 1 page 2 minutes
1 typist: 1 page 2 minutes

Then 2 pages per 2 minutes then 2x9 and 2x9 = 18 pages in 18 minutes

so 2 typists!! They just type for an extra 16 minutes so an extra 16 pages!!!

Asked my Consultant E.T. (the guy in the pic) and he spelled it out simply:

It takes 2 typists 2 minutes to type 2 pages thus each typist types 1 page in that 2 minutes, still with me? I said yes.
Since it takes 1 typist 2 minutes to type 1 page, how many pages can he type in 18 minutes? 9 was my reply, he said "correct".
If 1 typist can type 9 pages in 18 minutes, how many typists would it take to type 18 pages in 18 minutes? I just nodded and said:
IT TAKES TWO TYPIST 18 MINUTES TO TYPE 18 PAGES.

One typist types one page in two minutes. His typing speed decreases in successive time and thus he will not be able to type 9 pages in 18 minutes. :)
