Solutions for IBPS Clerk Quantitative Aptitude Questions with Answers PDF:

All the three friends will meet at the starting point again after X seconds, such that X is the LCM of the times taken by J, K and L to complete one round.
=> LCM of 12, 18 and 20 = 180 seconds = 3 minutes.
Hence 3 minutes is the answer.

Let the speed of boat in still water be v and the speed of water be x.
Boat speed while going upstream = v-x = 28
Boat speed while going downstream = v+x = 32
=> 2v = 60 => v = 30
Hence, none of these is the correct answer.

Suppose the required distance be d km/h
Then, d/4-d/5=15min=1/4 h ⇒d 1/20=1/4⇒d=5km

Speed downstream = (15 + 3) kmph = 18 kmph.
Distance traveled =(18×12/60)km = 3.6 km.

Time taken to cover 375 km = (375/75)h = 5h
Number of stoppages = 375/125-1 = 2
Total time to stoppages = (5 × 2 ) min = 10 min
Hence, total time taken = 5 h 10 min

With the current => downstream
Against the current => upstream
Let the speed of the boat be ‘s’ and the speed of the river be ‘r’.
So, s – r = 5 and s + r = 15
=>2s = 20 => s = 10 and r = 5 kmph
Speed of the current = 5 kmph

Let x be the speed of bike and y be the speed of bus.
y=8x
Also, bike covers 186 kilometers of distance in 3 hours
Therefore, x = 186/3 = 62km/hr
Now, y = 8x = 496km/hr
Distance covered by bus in 10 hours with this speed = 4960 km/hr

Speed of train = x
Relative speed = x + 9(5/18) = x + 2.5
Speed = 210/6 = 35m/s
x + 2.5 = 35 => x = 32.5 m/s = 32.5 * (18/5) = 6.5 * 18 = 117 kmph

We know the formula of speed which is Speed = Distance/Time
Speed of a truck = 640/10 = 64
Speed of a car = 640/8 = 80
Ratio of speed of truck and car = 64:80 = 4:5
