Question 80

I started climbing up the hill at 6 a.m. and reached the top of the temple at 6 p.m. Next day I started coming down at 6 a.m. and reached the foothill at 6 p.m. I walked on the same road. The road is so short that only one person can walk on it. Although I varied my pace on my way, I never stopped on my way. Then which of the following must be true?


The total time taken for both the journeys is the same. So, a) is incorrect. If he goes with the same speed both ways, he would've been at the same point at noon on both days. So, d) is incorrect. If he does not travel with the same speed in both the directions, he need not be at the same spot at noon. So, option b) is incorrect. Option c) is the correct answer.
