**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Speed of the boat upstream = (25-5)km/hr = 20 km/hr

Speed of the boat downstream = (25+5)km/hr = 30 km/hr

Distance = 60 km

Time taken upstream = 60/20 = 3 hours

Time taken downstream = 60/30 = 2 hours

Difference in time taken = 3-2 = 1 hour

**2)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Since it takes twice as long in upstream,

Net speed in Upstream = x

Net speed in downstream = 2x

Let the speed of stream be y

24-y = x

24+y = 2x

24+y = 2(24-y)

3y = 24

y = 8

**3)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the speed of the boat be x.

Speed of the boat Upstream = x-4

90/(x-4) = 3

x = 34km/hr

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Speed of the boat upstream = (57-7)km/hr = 50km/hr

Time = 2 hours

Distance = 50*2 = 100km

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Distance = 60km

Let speed of the boat be x

Speed of the boat upstream = (x-4) km/hr

Speed of the boat downstream = (x+4)km/hr

Total time = 8 hours

$\frac{60}{x-4} + \frac{60}{x+4} = 8$

$x^2-15x-16 = 0$

$x^2-16x+x-16 = 0$

(x+1)(x-16) = 0

x = -1 or +16

As speed cannot be negative, x=16km/hr

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Speed of the boat upstream = 25-5 = 20km/hr

Speed of the boat downstream = 25+5 = 30km/hr

Time take =$\frac{120}{30}+\frac{120}{20}$ = 4+6 hrs = 10 hrs

**7)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the speed of the current be c

Speed of the swimmer = s

s + c = 13 ….. (1)

s – c = 10 …….(2)

Subtracting (2) from (1), we get 2c = 3 or c = 1.5

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the man’s speed be m and the speed of current be c

Time taken in downstream = $ \frac{28}{m+c}$ = 5

Time taken in upsteam = $ \frac{16}{m-c}$ = 5

Subtracting second equation from first equation, we get 10 c = 12 or c = 1.2

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The relative speed of the boat in upstream = 30 – 5 = 25 kmph

Distance = 50 kms

Time = 50 / 25 = 2 hours.

Relative speed in downstream = 30 + 5 = 35 kmph

Distance = 70 kms

Time = 70/35 = 2 hours.

Total time = 2 + 2 = 4 hours.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let â€˜sâ€™ be the speed of the boat and â€˜wâ€™ be the speed of the stream.

We have, s = 27 km/hr and $\frac{27}{s-w} = 1.5 $ hour

So s – w = 18 so w = 9 km/hr

We get, $\frac{90}{18+9} = 2.5$ hour

Hence, option C is the right choice.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Speed of boat in still water = x say

Speed of stream = y say

During upstream, speed = x-y = 3kmph ——-(1)

During downstream, speed = x+y = 49/7 = 7 kmph ——-(2)

On solving (1) & (2)

x = 5 kmph & y = 2 kmph

So the answer is option A.

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let x, y are the speeds of boat and river.

Speed during upstream = x-y = 3 ——-(1)

speed during downstream = x+y = 49/7 = 7——-(2)

On solving (1) & (2)

x = 5 kmph y = 2 kmph

So the answer is option C.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let x be the speed of the boat in still water,

During upstream, speed $S_1=x-2$

During downstream, speed $S_2=x+2$

$S_1t_1=S_2t_2$

$(x-2)(6) = (x+2)(2)$

$6x-12 = 2x+4$

$4x = 16$

$x = 4 kmph$

So the answer is option C.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let x be the speed of the river.

During upstream, speed = 4-x kmph , time = 12hrs

During downstream, speed = 4+x kmph, time = 4hrs

(4-x)(12) = (4+x)(4)

48-12x = 16+4x

32 = 16x

x = 2

So the answer is option D.

**15)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Relative speed during downstream = 7+5 = 12 kmph

Time = 30 mins = 1/2 hr = 0.5 hrs

Distance = Speed*Time = 12*0.5 = 6 km

So the answer is option A.
