**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

Time taken when they work together = $ \frac {1}{\frac{1}{6}+\frac{1}{12}}$

= 4 days

**2) Answer (D)**

Work done in an hour when both pipe were opened = $\frac{1}{6} – \frac{1}{8} = \frac{1}{24}$

Let’s say after x hours outlet pipe was closed, so total tank filled in that time = $\frac{x}{24}$

After that for remaining (9-x) hours, tank filled = $\frac{(9-x)}{6}$

Hence, $\frac{x}{24}$ + $\frac{(9-x)}{6}$ = 1

Now after solving for x, x=4 hours

So answer will be d

**3) Answer (C)**

-Number of stations in 350 kilometers = 350/ 42 = 50/6 = 8 stations.

Time stopped at stations = 8 x 5 = 2/3 hrs

Time taken for travel = 350/72 + 2/3 = 5 hours 31 minutes 40 seconds

**4) Answer (B)**

Relative distance to be covered = length of the train = 600 m

Relative speed = Speed of the train + Speed of the person (opposite direction)

= 54 * 5/18 m/s + 5 m/s = 15 + 5 = 20 m/s

So, time taken = 600/20 = 30 seconds

**5) Answer (B)**

Work done by 2 women = Work done by 1 man

Work done by 20 women = Work done by 10 men

So, 10 men + 10 men = 20 men take 20 days to finish the work

So, to complete it in 1 day, the number of men required = 20*20 = 400

**6) Answer (D)**

Let the number of days taken by Krishna to complete the work be N.

Ram’s one-day work + Krishna’s one-day work = 1/60 + 1/N

Total one day work = 1/40

=> 1/60 + 1/N = 1/40 => 1/N = 1/40 – 1/60 = 1/120

=> N = 120 days

**7) Answer (C)**

Let the usual speed be s.

So, time of journey = 1200/s

Reduced speed = s-10

Time of journey = 1200/(s-10)

So, 1200/(s-10) – 1200/s = 4

Solving, we get, s = 60 kmph

So, time of journey = 1200/60 = 20 hours

Time of journey in this case = 24 hours

**8) Answer (A)**

Chetan’s one-day work = 1/10

Dhanush’s one-day work = 1/15

One-day work of Chetan + Dhanush = 1/10 + 1/15 = 10/60 = 1/6

So, number of days required to complete the work = 1/(1/6) = 6 days

So, after 5 days, the fraction of work remaining = (6-5)/6 = 1/6

**9) Answer (D)**

Let the speed of the second train be ‘s’.

Case 1: Relative speed = 100 – s

Relative distance = 50 m + 100 m = 150 m

Time taken = 7.5 seconds

Relative speed = Relative distance / time = 150 / 7.5 = 20 m/s = 72 kmph

So, speed of the second train = 28 kmph = 7.77 m/s

Time taken by the second train to cross a pole = Relative distance / Speed

= 100/7.77 = 12.85 seconds = 13 seconds approximately

**10) Answer (A)**

1st tap’s 1 hour work = ¼

2nd tap’s 1 hour work = -1/6

One hour work of both the taps together = ¼ – 1/6 = 1/12

So, time taken to fill an empty tank = 1/(1/12) = 12 hours

**11) Answer (B)**

Total work = 18 * 150

108 persons can complete it in $\frac{18*150}{108}$

= $\frac{150}{6}$ = 25 days

**12) Answer (D)**

Let the total work be x.

P completes $\frac{x}{40}$ work every day.

Q completes $\frac{x}{120}$ work every day.

P + Q => $\frac{x}{40}$ + $\frac{x}{120}$ = $\frac{1}{30}$

=> P and Q together will take 30 days to complete the work.

**13) Answer (B)**

In 1 hour the car can travel 80 km if stoppages are excluded.

In the same time, the care can travel only 50 km if stoppages are included.

=> 30 km less because of stoppages

Time taken to cover 30km = $\frac{30}{80}$ = 0.375 hours = 0.375 * 60 minutes = 22.5 minutes

**14) Answer (D)**

$\frac{1}{a} + \frac{1}{b}$ = $\frac{1}{18}$

$\frac{1}{a} + \frac{1}{c}$ = $\frac{1}{24}$

$\frac{1}{b} + \frac{1}{c}$ = $\frac{1}{36}$

=> 2($\frac{1}{a} + \frac{1}{b} + \frac{1}{c}$) = $\frac{1}{18}$ + $\frac{1}{24}$ + $\frac{1}{36}$ = $\frac{1}{8}$

=> ($\frac{1}{a} + \frac{1}{b} + \frac{1}{c}$) = $\frac{1}{16}$

=> It takes 16 days for A, B and C together to complete the work.

**15) Answer (A)**

A’s 1 day work = 1/10

B’s 1 day work = 1/15

(A+B)’s 1 day work = 1/10 + 1/15 = 5/30 = 1/6

Hence they will take 6 days to complete the same work.
