CAT 1997 Question Paper Question 70


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 70

If X had started the return journey from India at 2.55 a.m. on the same day that he reached there, after how much time would he reach Frankfurt?


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

Return journey is 1 hour lesser => 25 - 1 = 24 hours.
