**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

Let the distance be ‘d’ that has to be covered.

So the distance covered by the train = d/3

Time taken to cover d/3 distance by train = $\frac{\frac{d}{3}}{60}$ = d/180 hr

Remaining distance = d – d/3 = 2d/3

Distance covered by the bus = $\frac{1}{2}*\frac{2d}{3}$ = d/3

Time taken to cover d/3 distance by the bus = $\frac{\frac{d}{3}}{40}$ = d/120 hr

Remaining distance = 2d/3 – d/3 = d/3

Let assume that the remaining distance is covered by x kmph

Time taken to cover this distance = $\frac{\frac{d}{3}}{x}$ = d/3x hr

For entire distance ‘d’

$\Rightarrow$ 50 = $\frac{d}{\frac{d}{180}+\frac{d}{120}+\frac{d}{3x}}$

$\Rightarrow$ 50 = $\frac{360x}{2x+3x+120}$

$\Rightarrow$ x = 600/11 kmph

**2) Answer (D)**

Let assume Car’s speed = S km/hr.

So local train’s speed will be = 1.5*S km/hr

It is given that both the vehicle covered same distance = 30 kms and Car took 5 minutes more as compare to the local train.

So, we can say that

$ \frac{30}{S} – \frac{30}{1.5S} = \frac{1}{12}$

$\frac{10}{S} = \frac{1}{12}$

S = 120 kmph

**3) Answer (D)**

We do not know the speed of the cop or the thief. But, using the train, we can find the difference between the relative speeds of the cop and the thief.

Sum of the speeds of the train and the thief = 300/15 = 20 m/s

Sum of the speeds of the train and the cop = 300/10 = 30 m/s

Difference between the speeds of the cop and the thief = 30-20 = 10 m/s.

The cop will take 120/10 = 12 seconds to catch the thief after spotting him.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

**4) Answer (E)**

The speeds of the trains are 30 m/s and 20 m/s respectively.

The relative speed = 50 m/s

The length to traversed to completely cross each other = 400 m

Time = $\frac{400}{50}$ = 8 seconds

EndGroup:

**5) Answer (C)**

Speed of first train = 90 km/hr = 25 m/s

Let the length of first train be 2l. So the length of second train will be l.

Speed of second train = 90*.8 = 72 km/hr = 20 m/s

Hence, total distance travelled in 20 s = 45*20 = 900 m

3l = 900 m

=> l = 300 m

Hence, the length of first train is 600 m.

Time taken to cross a platform of length 300 m = 900 / 25 = 36 seconds.

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**6) Answer (B)**

Let the length of train A, train B and platform be l.

Total length a train has to traverse to cross the platform = length of the train + length of the platform = l+ l = 2l.

Speed of train A = 2l/20

Speed of train B = 2l/30

When they trains run towards each other, the relative speed will be the sum of the individual speeds.

=> Relative speed = 2l/20 + 2l/30 = 10l/60

Total length the trains must travel to cross each other completely = length of train A + length of train B = l+l = 2l.

=> Time taken by the trains to completely cross each other = 2l/(10l/60) = 12 seconds.

Therefore, option B is the right answer.

**7) Answer (D)**

Let the length of train A be l and the length of train B be d.

Length of platform = l/2 = 0.5l

Speed of both the trains is same.

A takes twice as much time as B to cross the platform.

(l+0.5l)/t = (d+0.5l)/2t

2l+l = d + 0.5l

2.5l = d

=> l/d = 2/5.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

**8) Answer (E)**

Let the length of the trains be ‘l’.

When they are running in the same direction, they take 120 seconds to cross each other.

=> (l+l)/(3x-2x) = 120

2l/x = 120 seconds.

When they run in the opposite direction, the relative speed will be 3x+2x = 5x.

=>(l+l)/(3x+2x) = ?

2l/5x = ?

We know that 2l/x = 120.

=> 2l/5x = 120/5 = 24 seconds.

Therefore, option E is the right answer.

**9) Answer (B)**

The total distance that the trains need to cover to completely cross each other is 200 + 160 = 360 m

Now, let the speed of the faster and slower trains be f and s

When they are travelling in same direction, the effective speed becomes f – s

Hence, we have

f – s = 360/30 = 12

Similarly, when they are travelling in same direction the effective speed becomes f + s

Hence,

f + s = 360/15 = 24

Solving the two equations we get

2f = 36

f = 18 m/s = 64.8 km/hr

**10) Answer (A)**

The train takes 10 seconds to cross the electric pole. Hence, the speed of the train will be 200/10 = 20 m/s

Now the length of second train is 400 m and its speed is 10 m/s.

Hence, the effective relative speed is 10 m/s and the total distance to be covered is 600 m.

Hence, the required time will be 600/10 = 60 seconds.

**11) Answer (D)**

Speed of the train = 36 kmph = 36*5/18 = 10 m/s.

Let the length of train X be x and length of train Y be y.

We know that train X crosses a platform of length 500 m in 100 seconds.

(x+500)/10 = 100

x+500 = 1000

x = 500 m.

Both trains X and Y run at the same speed but in the opposite direction.

Therefore, (x+y)/(10+10) = 80

500+y = 1600 m

=> y = 1100 m.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

**12) Answer (D)**

Let the length of one train be ‘l’.

Let the speed of one train be ‘s’ and the speed of the other train be 1.5s.

It has been given that 2l/(s+1.5s) = 100 (Running in opposite directions)

2l/s = 250 seconds ———–(1).

If the trains run in the same direction, relative velocity will be 1.5s – s = 0.5s

2l/0.5s = 2*(2l/s) = 2*250 = 500 seconds.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

**13) Answer (B)**

Let the length of train A be 2d.

Length of train B = d.

Length of the platform = d.

Time taken by train A to cross 2d+d = Time taken by train B to cross d+d = 10 seconds.

Therefore, their speeds are in the ratio 3:2.

Speed of train A = 3d/10 and speed of train B = 2d/10.

When trains A and B are moving towards each other, total distance to cross will be the sum of the lengths of the trains = d+2d = 3d.

Relative speed will be the sum of the speed of the 2 trains since they are moving towards each other.

Relative speed = 3d/10 + 2d/10 = 5d/10 = d/2.

Time taken = 3d/(d/2) = 6 seconds. Therefore, option B is the right answer.

**14) Answer (E)**

The length of the train is 200 m and it takes 10 seconds to cross a pole. Hence, the speed of the train will be 200/10 = 20 m/s

The length of second train is also 200 m. The length of the platform is 400 m. So the total distance covered is 600 m.

Time taken is 60 seconds. So speed of the second train is 600/60 = 10 m/s

Now both the trains are moving in opposite directions. So their speeds will add up. Hence, required time to cross will be 400/30

= 13.33 seconds

**15) Answer (C)**

Length of the train is 260 metres

Length of the wall is 120 metres

total is 260+120 = 380 metres

Time taken is 19 seconds.

Hence, the speed is 380/19 = 20 m/s = 72 Km/hr

Answer is option C

**16) Answer (C)**

Speed of train = 120 kmph

= $(120 \times \frac{5}{18})$ m/s = $\frac{100}{3}$ m/s

Let length of the train = $l$ meters

Using, speed = distance/time

=> $\frac{100}{3} = \frac{l}{15}$

=> $l=\frac{100}{3} \times 15$

=> $l=100 \times 5=500$ meters

=> Ans – (C)

**17) Answer (A)**

Length of first train = 240 m and second train = 270 m

Total length of the two trains = 240 + 270 = 510 m

Speed of first train = 60 kmph and second train = 48 kmph

Since, the trains are moving in opposite direction, thus relative speed = 60 + 48 = 108 kmph

= $(108 \times \frac{5}{18})$ m/s = $30$ m/s

Let time taken = $t$ seconds

Using, time = distance/speed

=> $t=\frac{510}{30}=17$ seconds

=> Ans – (A)

**18) Answer (D)**

Let speed of the train = $10x$ m/s

Length of train = $l$ m

Time taken to cross the pole = 6 sec

Using, $speed = \frac{distance}{time}$

=> $10x = \frac{l}{6}$

=> $x = \frac{l}{60}$

Now, 60% of the speed = $\frac{60}{100} \times 10x = 6x$ m/s

Length of platform = 240 m

Acc. to ques, => $6x = \frac{240 + l}{15}$

=> $6 \times \frac{l}{60} = \frac{240 + l}{15}$

=> $\frac{l}{10} = \frac{240 + l}{15}$

=> $15l = 2400 + 10l$

=> $15l – 10l = 5l = 2400$

=> $l = \frac{2400}{5} = 480$ m

**19) Answer (C)**

Let usual speed of the train = $10x$ m/s

Now, 50% of the speed = $\frac{50}{100} \times 10x = 5x$ m/s

Length of train = $l$ m

Time taken to cross the pole = 20 sec

Using, $speed = \frac{distance}{time}$

=> $5x = \frac{l}{20}$

=> $x = \frac{l}{100}$

Length of platform = 300 m

Acc. to ques, => $10x = \frac{300 + l}{25}$

=> $10 \times \frac{l}{100} = \frac{300 + l}{25}$

=> $\frac{l}{10} = \frac{300 + l}{25}$

=> $25l = 3000 + 10l$

=> $25l – 10l = 15l = 3000$

=> $l = \frac{3000}{15} = 200$ m

**20) Answer (A)**

Let speed of the train = $20x$ m/s

Now, 75% of the speed = $\frac{75}{100} \times 20x = 15x$ m/s

Length of train = 150 m

Time taken to cross the pole = 12 sec

Using, $speed = \frac{distance}{time}$

=> $15x = \frac{150}{12}$

=> $x = \frac{10}{12} = \frac{5}{6}$

Length of platform = $l$ m

Acc. to ques, => $20x = \frac{150 + l}{24}$

=> $20 \times \frac{5}{6} = \frac{150 + l}{24}$

=> $\frac{50}{3} = \frac{150 + l}{24}$

=> $150 + l = 400$

=> $l = 400 – 150 = 250$ m
