Answers and Solutions for Time and Distance Questions for Bank Clerk:

Solutions:

The number of days in 3 weeks is 3*7 = 21
Swati walks 150 metres everyday.
Hence, the distance covered by Swati in 3 weeks equals 150*21 = 3150 metres
1000 metres equal one kilometre. Hence, the distance covered by Swati in 3 weeks is 3.15 km

Neela completes one round around the circular stadium in 10 seconds.
Saroj completes one round around the circular stadium in 6 seconds.
Paulami completes one round around the circular stadium in 14 seconds.
Hence, the three of them meet again at the starting point in LCM(10,6,14) seconds.
The least common multiple (LCM) of 10,6 and 14 is 210 seconds.
So, the three of them meet again after 210 seconds which is 3 minutes 30 seconds.

Let the speed of the boat in still water be B and the speed of the water be W.
So, speed of the boat downstream is B+W and the speed of the boat upstream is B-W.
From the information given, the speed of the boat downstream is 16/2 = 8 kmph
Speed of the boat upstream is 16/4 = 4 kmph
Hence, B+W = 8 and B-W =4
So, B = 6 kmph and W = 2 kmph

66 kmph = 66 *5/18 m/s
It takes 18 secs to cross the post. So, length = 66 * 18* 5/18 = 330 metres.
