Given below is the time table for a trans-continental train that cuts across several time zones. All timings are in local time in the respective cities. The average speed of the train between any two cities is the same in both directions.

Question 74

# What time is it at Yag when it is 12:00 noon at Sab?

Solution

The above figure shows the time taken in hrs:min to travel between two consecutive cities both for upward and downward journeys.

The difference in time between two consecutive cities will be the average of the difference in time taken for upward and downward journeys.

So, the difference of time for different consecutive pairs can be found as below:

Z-Y:

For both up & down motions time difference is 0. Hence, Z & Y are in same time zone.

Y-V:

Time taken for travelling from Y to V is less than that of from  V to Y with a difference of 4 hrs. Hence, Y is 2 hours ahead of V.

V-S:

Time taken for travelling from V to S is less than that of from  S to V with a difference of 6 hrs. Hence, V is 3 hours ahead of S.

S-R:

Time taken for travelling from S to R is less than that of from  R to S with a difference of 2 hrs. Hence, S is 1 hour ahead of R.

It can be concluded that Yag is 5 hours ahead of Sab. Hence, it will be 5:00 Pm at Yag when it is 12 noon at Sab.

Hence, option A.
