**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let the distance between City A and City B = $d$ km

Speed of first car = 60 km/hr and speed of second car = 108 km/hr

Let time taken by first car = $t$ hrs and time taken by second car = $(t – 2)$ hrs

Using, speed = distance/time for first car :

=> $\frac{d}{t} = 60$

=> $d = 60t$ ————–(i)

For second car, => $\frac{d}{t – 2} = 108$

Substituting value of $d$ from equation (i), we get :

=> $60t = 108t – 216$

=> $108t – 60t = 48t = 216$

=> $t = \frac{216}{48} = 4.5$ hrs

From equation (i), => $d = 60 \times 4.5 = 270$ km

=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (A)**

Time taken by Aman from Mathura to reach Gwalior = 196 minutes and 225 minutes by Kapil to reach Delhi from Mathura.

=> Time taken by them to reach Mathura from their respective starting points = $t=\sqrt{196\times225}$

=> $t=14\times15=210$ minutes

Now, total time taken by Aman to reach Gwalior from Delhi = $210+196=406$ minutes

and total time taken by Kapil = $210+225=435$ minutes

Also, speed of Aman = 30 km/hr

Thus, total distance between Delhi and Gwalior = $d=(30\times406)$ km

$\therefore$ Speed of Kapil = $\frac{30\times406}{435}=28$ km/hr

=> Ans – (A)

**3) Answer (D)**

Total time taken by first train = 6 hours and second train = 5 hours

$\because speed \propto\frac{1}{time}$

=> Let speed of first train = $5x$ km/hr and speed of second train = $6x$ km/hr

=> Distance between Delhi and Jaipur = $5x\times6=30x$ km

At 10:00 am, first train starts moving, => distance covered by it in 2 (12-10) hours = $5x\times2=10x$ km

Distance left between the two trains at 12:00 pm = $30x-10x=20x$ km

Now, at 12:00 pm both move towards each other, => relative speed = $5x+6x=11x$ km/hr

=> Time taken to meet each other = $(\frac{20x}{11x}\times60)$ minutes $\approx 109$ minutes

= 1 hour and 49 minutes

$\therefore$ Time at which they will meet = 12:00 pm + 1 hour and 49 minutes = 1:49 pm

=> Ans – (D)

**4) Answer (A)**

Speed of A = 25 km/hr and speed of B = 10 km/hr

Distance between A and B = 260 km

At 9:00 am, A starts moving, => distance covered by A in 2 (11-9) hours = $25\times2=50$ km

Distance left between A and B at 11:00 am = $260-50=210$ km

Now, at 11:00 am both move towards each other, => relative speed = $25+10=35$ km/hr

=> Time taken to meet each other = $\frac{210}{35}=6$ hours

$\therefore$ Time at which they will meet = 11:00 am + 6 hours = 5:00 pm

=> Ans – (A)

**5) Answer (C)**

Ratio of speed = 3 : 4 : 6

Also, $speed\propto\frac{1}{time}$

=> Ratio of time taken = $\frac{1}{3}:\frac{1}{4}:\frac{1}{6}$

Multiplying by L.C.M.(3,4,6) = 12

= $12(\frac{1}{3}:\frac{1}{4}:\frac{1}{6})$

= $4:3:2$

=> Ans – (C)

**6) Answer (D)**

Let my usual speed = $6x$ km/min and my usual time to reach office = $t$ minutes

New speed = $\frac{7}{6}\times6x=7x$ km/min and new time = $(t-15)$ minutes

$\because speed\propto\frac{1}{time}$

=> $\frac{6x}{7x}=\frac{(t-15)}{t}$

=> $\frac{6}{7}=\frac{t-15}{t}$

=> $6t=7t-105$

=> $7t-6t=t=105$ minutes

=> Ans – (D)

**7) Answer (B)**

Let the distance between any two consecutive trees = $d$ metres

=> Total distance between the 37 trees = $36d$ metres

Time taken to reach the 13th tree = 20 seconds

=> Speed of car = distance/time

= $\frac{12d}{20}=\frac{3d}{5}$ m/s

Thus, time taken to reach the last tree from the first tree = $\frac{36d}{\frac{3d}{5}}$

= $36\times\frac{5}{3}=60$ seconds

$\therefore$ The car will take (60-20) = 40 seconds more to reach the last tree

=> Ans – (B)

**8) Answer (B)**

Speed before repairing = $s’=48$ km/hr and after repairing = $s=54$ km/hr

Let time taken to cover the distance before repairing = $t’$ hours and after repairing = $t=6$ hours

Using, distance = speed x time

=> $s’\times t’=s\times t$

=> $48\times t’=54\times6$

=> $t’=\frac{54}{8}=6.75$ hours

=> $t’=6.75\times60=405$ minutes

$\therefore$ Time taken to cover the same distance before repairing = 405 minutes = 6 hours 45 minutes

=> Ans – (B)

**9) Answer (C)**

Speed of first runner = 8 km/hr starting at 6:00 am

Speed of second runner = 10 km/hr starting at 8:30 am

=> Distance covered by the first runner till 8:30 am (2.5 hours) = $8\times2.5=20$ km

Now, at 8:30 am, the first runner is 20 km ahead of second runner who just started running and since they are running in same direction, => relative speed = 10 – 8 = 2 km/hr

Time taken to overtake the first runner = distance/speed

= $\frac{20}{2}=10$ hours

$\therefore$ Time of the day when the second racer will overtake the other runner = 8:30 am + 10 hours = 6:30 pm

=> Ans – (C)

**10) Answer (C)**

Let time = x

15x – 9x = 3

x = 0.5hr

distance = 9x = 9(0.5) = 4.5km

So the answer is option C.
