London: Men have finally admitted what women have long been claiming - females are better at multi-tasking, a new study has revealed.

In the study, based on a survey, three quarters of men said women were more successful at doing four or more things at the same time, while they managed two at most. And, women agreed, with 98 percent saying they could cope with several tasks at once better than men.

One in four men said that when trying to do more than one activity at a time, he ending up doing very little of any of them. A third said they ended up not doing anything properly, the survey found.

When it came to getting the job done, women were more likely to get stuck in with no complaints, the study by cleaning Equipment Company Karcher found. Only 16 percent said they would ask for a man's help.
   
Over two-thirds of women prepared food at home while doing other housework and 68 percent combined with other chores, including cleaning up as they went along as reported.

On average, most women do four tasks at the same time with four out of five claiming they would not get anything done otherwise. But 69 percent said they received no help from their partners.
