Question 10:Â A, B and C go to watch a movie. All of them start from the same point. A and B go on a jeep while C walks. A drops B at the movie hall and returns to pick up C. He then picks up C and reaches the movie hall. If the total distance traveled by the Jeep is 1.8 times the total distance between the starting point and the movie hall, what is the ratio of the speeds of C and Jeep?

a) 3:4
b) 3:7
c) 4:7
d) 5:9
e) 4:9

Speed of train = 480/8 = 60 kmph.
Speed of car = (5/6)*60 = 50 kmph.
Speed of bike = (4/5)*50 = 40 kmph.
Distance travelled by bike in 9 hours = 40*9 = 360 km.

Let speed of bus = $s$ km/hr
Distance covered = 2924 km
Time taken = 43 hours
Using speed = distance/time
=> $s=\frac{2924}{43}=68$ km/hr
=> Ans – (C)

Time taken by boatÂ to travel from point A to B in still waterÂ = 2 hours
To find the upstream speed, we definitely need the speed of stream, thus statement (iii) is mandatory.
Also, the distance between points A and B or the speed of boat in still water is needed.
Thus, statements (i) and (iii) are required to find the upstream speed of the boat.
=> Ans – (D).

It took total of 10 hours to travel 180 km. Hence the effective speed was 18 km/hr. Let the speed of the stream was â€˜xâ€™. So the speed of the Sumit will be 8x.
Hence, 9x = 18
=> x = 2
Now while coming back the speed of the stream has doubled. So it has become 4. He will now be rowing upstream. So effective speed will be 16 – 4 = 12
Hence, required time = 180/12 = 15 hours
In the time that Raman runs 200 m, Sumit runs 160 m. Hence, the ratio of their speeds is 5:4. Now, in the time that Raman runs 200 m, Sumit runs 170 m. Hence, the ratio of their speeds is 20:17
Thus, we can say that the ratio of the speeds of all three people will be 25:20:17
Hence, the ratio of the speeds of Raman and Sumit is 25:17.
Hence, in the time that Raman travels 500 m, Sumit will travel 340 m. Thus, Raman will beat Sumit by 160 m.

Let the volume of the tank be 60 litres.
So the inlet pipe fills 5 litres per minutes and outlet pipe empties 3 litres per minute. For the first 5 minutes only inlet pipe is operating. Hence, it will fill 25 litres. For the next 8 minutes, only 2 litres is being filled per minute. Hence, at 10:13, 41 litres water will be there in the tank. Now 19 litres can be filled by the inlet pipe in 4 minutes and 48 seconds. Thus, the tank will be completely filled at 10:17:48.
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.

It has been given that P and Q meet for the first time 12km from A. Therefore, their speeds are in the ratio 12:8 or 3:2.
After they meet for the first time, they have to cover 40 km together. Therefore, both P and Q will travel twice as much distance as they travelled before the first meeting point. P will have to cover 24 km. In total, P would have covered 12 km (before the first meeting) + 24 km (After the first meeting)= 36 km. Therefore, P will be 4 km shy of A. The meeting point is located 20 – 4 km = 16 km from B. Therefore, option D is the right answer.

Let the distance between the starting point and the movie hall be â€˜dâ€™.
A drops B at the movie hall. By this time, A would have covered a distance of â€˜dâ€™.
Then, A returns and meets C. Let the distance of the point at which A and C meet be â€˜tâ€™ from the movie hall.
Then, A and C reach the movie hall.
Total distance walked by C = d-t.
Total distance travelled by A = d + t +t = d + 2t.
It has been given that d+2t = 1.8d
=> t = 0.4d
By the time A covered a distance of d+t, C covered a distance of d-t.
A covered 1.4d in the time C covered 0.6d.
Therefore, the ratio of the speeds is 0.6d:1.4d = 3:7.
Therefore, option B is the right answer.
