**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

The train with length 360 m passes by a man standing at the platform in 24 seconds .The speed of the train is

V= 360/24= 15 m/s

Let the length of the platform be L

(L+ 360)/ 55 = 15

L+360= 15*55

L+360=825

L= 825-360

L= 465 m.

**2) Answer (D)**

Due to stoppages, bus travelled 14 km less in one hour.

Time taken to travel 14 km without stoppages = $\dfrac{14}{70}\times60 = 12$ min

**3) Answer (A)**

Let the total distance be x km

Given, Total time taken to reach x km = 12 hours

Speed for $\dfrac{x}{5}$ km = 6 km/hr

Time taken to travel $\dfrac{x}{5}$ km = $\dfrac{x}{5\times6} = \dfrac{x}{30}$ hours

Speed for remaining $\dfrac{4x}{5}$ km = 8 km/hr

Time taken to travel $\dfrac{4x}{5}$ km = $\dfrac{4x}{5\times8} = \dfrac{x}{10}$ hours

Total time = $\dfrac{x}{30}+\dfrac{x}{10} = \dfrac{4x}{30}$ hours

Given, $\dfrac{4x}{30} = 12$ => x = 90

Therefore, Total distance = 90 km

**4) Answer (B)**

Let the speeds of the two cars be 6x km/hr and 5x km/hr.

Given, Speed of second car = 600km/6 hours = 100 km/hr

5x = 100 => x = 20

Therefore, Speed of the first car = 6x = 6*20 = 120 km/hr

**5) Answer (B)**

Given, Speed = 48 km/hr

Time = 14 hours

Then, Distance = $48 \times 14 = 672 km$

New speed = 84 km/hr

Then, Time taken = 672/84 = 8 hours

**6) Answer (B)**

Distance between P and Q = 570 km

Speed of first train = 90 km/hr

Speed of second train = 70 km/hr

Second train starts after 1 hour of start of first train.

Then, First train travels 90 km in that 1 hour.

Remaining distance = 570 km – 90 km = 480 km

Relative speed = 90+70 = 160 km/hr

Time taken to meet = 480/160 = 3 hours.

Hence, They will meet 3 hours after 6am = 9am

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the length of the bridge = L m

Speed of the train = 60 km/hr = $60\times\dfrac{5}{18} = \dfrac{50}{3} m/sec$

$\dfrac{400+L}{36} = \dfrac{50}{3}$

=> 400+L = 600

=> L = 200

Therefore, Length of the bridge = 200 m

**8) Answer (C)**

Given, Speed of the train = 72 km/hr = $72\times\dfrac{5}{18} = 20 m/sec$

Time taken to cross a man on the platform = 25 seconds

Let the length of the train be T m and length of the platform be P m.

Given, $\dfrac{T}{25} = 20 => T = 500$

Hence, The length of the train = 500 m

Given, $\dfrac{500+P}{42} = 20 => 500+P = 840 => P = 340$

Therefore, The length of the platform = 340 m

**9) Answer (C)**

As both are travelling in opposite directions relative velocity=62+82=144 km/hr

144*5/18 =40 m/s

Total distance=155+95

=240 m

Time taken=240/40

=6 sec

**10) Answer (A)**

Average Speed=Total distance/Total time

Let the side of the square be ‘s’ and so total distance=4s

Total time =(s/10)+(s/12)+(s/15)+(s/20)

=18s/60

Average speed=4s/(18s/60)

=40/3 km/hr

=$13\frac{1}{3}$ km/hr

**11) Answer (D)**

Distance=Speed*time

=120*4

=480 km

Speed=distance/time

=480/(10/3)

=144 km/hr

**12) Answer (D)**

Average speed=Total distance/Total time

Distance 1=60*1=60 km

Distance 2=65*1=65 km

Distance 3=70*1=70 km

Total distance=195 km

Total time=3 hours

Average speed=195/3

=65 km/hr

**13) Answer (C)**

Let the distance between A and B be ‘d’

speed of Q be q

‘t’ be the time taken for them to meet

d/(90+q) =t

d/(t+10)=q

d/(t+(5/2))=90

d=90t+225

d=90t+qt

d=qt+10q

qt=225

q=9t

$t^{2}$=25

t=5 hours

q=9*5=45 km/hr

**14) Answer (B)**

Let the original speed be ‘V’ and time taken be ‘t’ hours

Therefore 250/V =t

Now speed=0.8V

Therefore 250/0.8V =t+5/4

250/V =0.8(t+5/4)

t=0.8t+1

0.2t=1

t=5 hours

Original speed V=250/5

=50 km/hr

**15) Answer (A)**

Let the length of the train be T m.

Speed of the train = $\dfrac{T+243}{30} = \dfrac{T+343}{36}$

=> $\dfrac{T+243}{5} = \dfrac{T+343}{6}$

=> $6T+1458 = 5T+1715$

=> T = 257

Hence, Length of the train = 257 m

Therefore, Speed of the train $= \dfrac{243+257}{30} = \dfrac{500}{30} = \dfrac{50}{3} m/sec = \dfrac{50}{3} \times \dfrac{18}{5} = 60 km/hr$
