CAT 1997 Question Paper Question 69


Boston is 4 hr ahead of Frankfurt and 2 hr behind India. X leaves Frankfurt at 6 p.m. on Friday and reaches Boston the next day. After waiting there for 2 hr, he leaves exactly at noon and reaches India at 1 a.m. On his return journey, he takes the same route as before, but halts at Boston for 1hr less than his previous halt there. He then proceeds to Frankfurt.

Question 69

If his journey, including stoppage, is covered at an average speed of 180 mph during the journey from Frankfurt to India, what is the distance between Frankfurt and India?


X leaves Frankfurt at 6 PM and reaches Boston at 10 AM, which is 6 AM in Frankfurt => 12-hour journey

Leaves Boston at 12 PM ad reaches India at 1 AM, which is 11 PM in Boston => 11-hour journey

=> Total time = 12 + 2 + 11 = 25 hours

Average speed = 180 mph

=> Distance = 25 * 180 = 4500 miles
