**4) Answer (A)**

Hour hand moves at a speed of 1/2 degree/min

The minute hand moves at a speed of 6 degrees/min

At 4:00, the hour hand is 120 degrees with the minute hand

in 45 min Minute hand covers 11/2*45 = 247.5 degrees

.’. The angle between the minute hand and the hour hand is 247.5 -120= 127.5 degrees

**5) Answer (A)**

Assuming time taken by Ram = t

Then the time taken by Shyam = t-45/60 =t-0.75 (Since he started 45 minutes later)

Now, since the distance travelled by Ram and Shyam is same.

5t=10(t-0.75)

t=2t-0.75*2

=> t = 1.5 hours

1.5 hours after 9 a.m. =

10:30 a.m.

**6) Answer: 20**

Let the number of workers remaining during unlock phases be x.

The average number of workers working per day during the unlock phase = (0.2x + 0.4x + 0.6x + 0.8x)/4 = 0.5x

Let the number of workers before lockdown be = y.

The average number of workers per day before lockdown = y.

It is given 0.5x = 40% of y

=> 0.5x = .4y

=> x = .8y

Hence the number of workers who migrated = y – 0.8y = 0.2y

Percentage of workers who migrated = $\frac{0.2y \times 100}{y}$ = 20%

**7) Answer: 20**

Let the number of workers remaining during unlock phases be x.

The average number of workers working per day during the unlock phase = (0.2x + 0.4x + 0.6x + 0.8x)/4 = 0.5x

Let the number of workers before lockdown be = y.

The average number of workers per day before lockdown = y.

It is given 0.5x = 40% of y

=> 0.5x = .4y

=> x = .8y

Hence the number of workers who migrated = y – 0.8y = 0.2y

Percentage of workers who migrated = $\frac{0.2y \times 100}{y}$ = 20%

**8) Answer: 20**

Let the number of workers remaining during unlock phases be x.

The average number of workers working per day during the unlock phase = (0.2x + 0.4x + 0.6x + 0.8x)/4 = 0.5x

Let the number of workers before lockdown be = y.

The average number of workers per day before lockdown = y.

It is given 0.5x = 40% of y

=> 0.5x = .4y

=> x = .8y

Hence the number of workers who migrated = y – 0.8y = 0.2y

Percentage of workers who migrated = $\frac{0.2y \times 100}{y}$ = 20%

**9) Answer: 20**

The average number of workers working per day during the unlock phase = (0.2x + 0.4x + 0.6x + 0.8x)/4 = 0.5x

Let the number of workers before lockdown be = y.

The average number of workers per day before lockdown = y.

It is given 0.5x = 40% of y

=> 0.5x = .4y

=> x = .8y

Hence the number of workers who migrated = y – 0.8y = 0.2y

Percentage of workers who migrated = $\frac{0.2y \times 100}{y}$ = 20%

**10) Answer (A)**

Assume the

speed of person

is n and that of

the escalator is

N

Then, (n+N) =

d/60

(n-N) = d/80

Adding both the

equation,

2n = d/60 + d/80

Hence, d/n =

480/7 = 68.5

**11) Answer (A)**

Assume the

speed of person

is n and that of

the escalator is

N

Then, (n+N) =

d/60

(n-N) = d/80

Adding both the

equation,

2n = d/60 + d/80

Hence, d/n =

480/7 = 68.5

seconds

**12) Answer (A)**

Since the watch loses 5

seconds every minute

It loses 5 minutes every

hour.

The correct time would be

when it loses 12 hours=

12*60 minutes

Time taken= (12*60)/ 5=

144 hours= 6days.

The clock would show

correct time at 10 pm

Tuesday.

**13) Answer (A)**

Let the time taken by A be x hours => Time taken by B is x – 2 hours.

1/x +1/x-2 = 7/24

48x- 48= 7×2-14x

7×2- 62x+48=0

x=8 annd 6/7

A takes 8 houre as A must be greater than 2.

**14) Answer (A)**

At 4pm the angle between the minute and hour hand= 30×4 =120 degrees

Initial distance between min and hour hand = 120$^{\circ\ \ }$

Relative velocity of minutes hand wrt to hour hand = 11/2 $^{\circ\ \ }$ / min

Time taken for them to meet= 120/(11/2) = 240/11 minutes

**15) Answer (A)**

At 4pm the angle between the minute and hour hand= 30×4 =120 degrees

Initial distance between min and hour hand = 120$^{\circ\ \ }$

Relative velocity of minutes hand wrt to hour hand = 11/2 $^{\circ\ \ }$ / min

Time taken for them to meet= 120/(11/2) = 240/11 minutes

**16) Answer (A)**

At 4pm the angle between the minute and hour hand= 30×4 =120 degrees

Initial distance between min and hour hand = 120$^{\circ\ \ }$

Relative velocity of minutes hand wrt to hour hand = 11/2 $^{\circ\ \ }$ / min

Time taken for them to meet= 120/(11/2) = 240/11 minutes

**17) Answer (B)**

Time taken by A to complete the marathon: 5hrs

Time taken by B to complete the marathon: 7hrs

Time taken by C to complete the marathon: 10hrs

They started the marathon at 10:10 AM, 9:30 AM and 7: 40 AM respectively

Let’s say A meet B after he travelled x minutes, B would have travelled x+40 minutes.

Now, x/x+40=5/7

7x= 5x+200

x=100 minutes.

Similarly,

Let’s say A meet C after he travelled y minutes, C would have travelled y+150 minutes.

y/(y+150)= 5/10

y=150

y-x=50 minutes

Option B

**18) Answer (B)**

Time taken by A to complete the marathon: 5hrs

Time taken by B to complete the marathon: 7hrs

Time taken by C to complete the marathon: 10hrs

They started the marathon at 10:10 AM, 9:30 AM and 7: 40 AM respectively

Let’s say A meet B after he travelled x minutes, B would have travelled x+40 minutes.

Now, x/x+40=5/7

7x= 5x+200

x=100 minutes.

Similarly,

Let’s say A meet C after he travelled y minutes, C would have travelled y+150 minutes.

y/(y+150)= 5/10

y=150

y-x=50 minutes

Option B

**19) Answer (B)**

Time taken by A to complete the marathon: 5hrs

Time taken by B to complete the marathon: 7hrs

Time taken by C to complete the marathon: 10hrs

They started the marathon at 10:10 AM, 9:30 AM and 7: 40 AM respectively

Let’s say A meet B after he travelled x minutes, B would have travelled x+40 minutes.

Now, x/x+40=5/7

7x= 5x+200

x=100 minutes.

Similarly,

Let’s say A meet C after he travelled y minutes, C would have travelled y+150 minutes.

y/(y+150)= 5/10

y=150

y-x=50 minutes

Option B

**20) Answer (A)**

A is the correct answer.
