**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

**2) Answer (A)**

The express train will cover 600 km in 6hrs and will stop fo 21 minutes in total at different stops.

Now, the distance covered by the local train in 6 hours 21 minutes while subtracting the 1 minute for each halt after 25 minutes = 6.35 * 50 – 250/25 = 307.5 km.

Therfore, the correct option is option A.

**3) Answer (C)**

This can be represented in diagrammatic form as,

Hence, by 30-60-90 theorem

Side opposite to 60 degree angle = $\sqrt{3}$/2 *hypotenuse = $\sqrt{3}$/2 *10 = 8.66 m

Therefore, the correct option is option C.

**4) Answer (C)**

The aggregate distance covered by squirrel in 1 minute = 6-4 = 2 metres.

So, at the end of 1 minute squirrel will climb 2 metres, at the end of 2 minutes squirrel will climb 4 metres and so on.

At the end of the 57 minute squirrel will have climbed 114 metres.

Now, at the 58th minute it will advance 6 metres more and reach the top.

Therefore, the correct option is option C.

**5) Answer (D)**

Let the lengths of train be x and y.

Now their speed is (x/27) and (y/17)

Also, they cross each other in 23 seconds.

(x/27) + (y/17) = (x+y)/23

We get (4/621)x = (6/291)y

(x/27)*(4/23) = (102/291)*(y/17)

(x/27)/(y/17) = (102/291)*(23/4)

Ratio of speed = (391/194)

Option D is the correct answer.

**6) Answer (D)**

The plane left half an hour late i.e it had to cover the same distance in half hour less time.

Now, we know that time = distance/speed

Let the origibal speed of the plane be x.

Now, (1500/x – 1500/x+250) = 0.5

Solving we get x = 750 km/hr.

Hence, the correct answer is option D.

**7) Answer (D)**

**8) Answer (B)**

**9) Answer (A)**

**10) Answer (E)**

Let the distance between Ram’s office and home = 150d

Then his original speed = $\frac{150d}{30}$ = 5d

Distance that Ram covered at (1/3)rd of original distance = $\frac{150d}{3}$ = 50d

(4/5)th of original speed = $\frac{4}{5} * 5d$ = 4d

Time taken by Ram to cover this distance = $\frac{50d}{4d} = 12.5$minutes

Remaining distance = 150d – 50d = 100d

(2/5)th of original speed = $\frac{2}{5}*5d$ = 2d

Time taken by Ram to cover the remaining distance = $\frac{100d}{2d}$ = 50 minutes

Hence total time taken by Ram = 12.5 + 50 = 62.5 minutes
