Answers & Solutions:

1) Answer (C)

Distance between buses will $20\times\frac{10}{60}$ = $\frac{10}{3}$ km.
Now man is travelling this distance in 8 min. with the relative speed of (20+$x$) (let’s assume speed of man is $x$ km/hr )
hence (20+$x$) = $\frac{\frac{10}{3}}{\frac{8}{60}}$
$x$= 5

2) Answer (B)

As distance is constant and we know s = \frac{d}{t} (where s is distance and t is time)
hence st = constant
or $s_{1}t_{1}$= $s_{2}t_{2}$
or $s_{1}t_{1}$=$ \frac{3}{4}s_{1}(t_{1}+ 20)$
hence $t_{1}$ = 60

3) Answer (C)

As we know distance is constant for vimal and kamal and that is equal to 100 m.
hence $V_{bimal}\times t_{bimal}$ = 100
or $V_{bimal}\times (t_{kamal} + 5)$ = 100
where $t_{kamal}$ will be $\frac{Distance}{V_{kamal}}$ i.e. $\frac{100 m}{18 kmph}$
so $V_{bimal}\times (\frac{100 m}{18 kmph} + 5)$ = 100
After  solving above equation we will get $V_{bimal}$ = 4 $\frac{m}{s}$ or 14.4 kmph

4) Answer (C)

As man and train are coming to each other
and we assume speed of train = $x$
hence its relative speed will be ($x$ + 3)
relative distance travelled = 240m = .24 km
time taken = 10 sec. = $\frac{10}{3600}$ hr

so ($x$ + 3) = $\frac{.24}{\frac{10}{3600}}$

solving the eq. we will $x$ equals to 83.4 kmph

5) Answer (A)

In 1 revolution wheel will complete a distance of $2\pi r = 2 \times \pi \times \frac{98}{2}$ = 308 cm.
Hence to cover 1540 m. , revolutions will be = $\frac{1540\times100}{308} = 500$

6) Answer (A)

As distance is constant
Hence $v_1 \times t_1 = \frac{3v_1}{4} \times (t_1 + \frac{3}{2})$ (Where is $v_1$ is speed, t_1 is time taken to travel)
On solving above equation, we will get $t_1 = \frac{9}{2}$

7) Answer (A)

Meeting at the first time will be L.C.M. of time taken by individuals to complete
i.e. L.C.M. of 200,300,360 and 450 will be equal to 1800 sec.

8) Answer (A)

Let the initial speed and time be s,t  respectively,
then speed and time in the next case are 6s/7 and (t+25)
As distance = speed * time, and distance travelled in both cases is the same,
(6s/7)*(t+25) = s*t
Solving the  above equation results in  t=150min

9) Answer (C)

Let the time and distance be t mins and d respectively,
In the first case:
Total time taken = (t – 15) mins = (t-15)/60 hrs.
Distance travelled  =  5*(t-15)/60
In the second case:
Total time taken = (t + 9) mins = (t+9)/60 hrs.
Distance travelled  = 3*(t+9)/60

So, 5*(t-15)/60 = 3*(t+9)/60,
Solving the above equation we get, t=51
So, d=3*(51+9)/60
=3 KMs
10) Answer (C)

Let the time and distance be t mins and d km respectively,
If it goes with an average speed of 40 km/hour, a train reaches its destination in time.
So, distance = (40*t)/60
If it goes with an average speed of 35 km hour, it is late by 15 minutes.
So, distance = 35*(t+15)/60
In both the cases, distance is same,
So,  40*t = 35*(t+15)
Solving the above equation gives t = 105
and d = (40*105)/60 = 70

11) Answer (A)

With 25 degree angle length of arc will be ($r \times$ ($\theta$ in radian) = 40m (where $r$ is radius of arc and $\theta$ will be angle made by it)
Now solving above equation, we will get $r$ = 91.64 m.

12) Answer (A)

they will collide if time to reach the crossing is same.

it is the case when

time taken by 1st car = time taken by 2nd car.

40/v1 = 50/v2

v1/v2 = 4/5

but condition not to collide is v1/v2 $\neq$ 4/5.

so the answer is option A.

13) Answer (B)

Speed of man = 18 km/h

Total distance = 90 km

As he stops after 7th km, => $90=(12\times7)+6$

=> He stops 12 times in the journey.

Total stoppage time = $12\times6=72$ min

Real time = $\frac{90}{18}=5$ hours

$\therefore$ Required time taken = 5hr + 72 min

= 6 hrs 12 min

=> Ans – (B)

14) Answer (C)

Let the distance travelled on foot be $x km$

=> Distance travelled on bicycle = $(61-x) km$

Time taken to travel on foot = $\frac{x}{4}$ hrs

Time taken to travel on bicycle = $\frac{61-x}{9}$ hrs

=> Total time = 9 = $\frac{x}{4} + \frac{61-x}{9}$

=> $9x + 244 – 4x = 324$

=> $5x = 324-244$

=> $x = \frac{80}{5} = 16$ km

15) Answer (A)

Since Raj and Prem walks in opposite directions, their relative speed will be sum of their individual speeds i.e.

Speed, $s$ = 3+2 = 5 kmph

Now, distance covered in 2 hours = time * speed

= 5*2 = 10 km
