**Answers & Solutions forÂ Time and Work Questions for SBI PO PDF:**

**1) Answer (D)**

All the three friends will meet at the starting point again after X seconds, such that X is the LCM of the times taken by J, K and L to complete one round.

=> LCM of 12, 18 and 20 = 180 seconds = 3 minutes.

Hence 3 minutes is the answer.

**2) Answer (E)**

Let the speed of boat in still water be v and the speed of water be x.

Boat speed while going upstream = v-x = 28

Boat speed while going downstream = v+x = 32

=> 2v = 60 => v = 30

Hence, none of these is the correct answer.

**3) Answer (A)**

Suppose the required distance be d km/h

Then, d/4 – d/5 = 15min = 1/4 h â‡’ d 1/20 = 1/4 â‡’ d = 5km.

**4) Answer (D)**

Speed downstream = (15 + 3) kmph = 18 kmph.

Distance traveled =(18Ã—12/60)km = 3.6 km.

**5) Answer (D)**

Time taken to cover 375 km = (375 / 75)h = 5h

Number of stoppages = 375 / 125 – 1 = 2

Total time to stoppages = (5 Ã— 2 ) min = 10 min

Hence, total time taken = 5 h 10 min

**6) Answer (C)**

With the current => downstream

Against the current => upstream

Let the speed of the boat be â€˜sâ€™ and the speed of the river be â€˜râ€™.

So, s – r = 5 and s + r = 15

=>2s = 20 => s = 10 and r = 5 kmph

Speed of the current = 5 kmph

**7) Answer (C)**

Speed of train = x

Relative speed = x + 9(5 / 18) = x + 2.5

Speed = 210 / 6 = 35 m/s

x + 2.5 = 35 => x = 32.5 m/s = 32.5 * (18/5) = 6.5 * 18 = 117 kmph

**8) Answer (E)**

We know the formula of speed which is Speed = Distance/Time

Speed of a truck = 640/10 = 64

Speed of a car = 640/8 = 80

Ratio of speed of truck and car = 64:80 = 4:5

**9) Answer (B)**

Number of days in 4 weeks = 4*7 = 28

Since Faisal walks 325 m every day

Distance walked in 28 days = 325*28 = 9100 m

9100 m = 9.1 km

**10) Answer (C)**

Length of the train = 280 m

Length of the platform = (280*3) m

Since the train passes the platform completely

Total distance traveled by train = 280 + (3*280) = 4*280

Time take = 6 min 40 s = 360 + 40 = 400 s

Speed = 4*280 / 400 = 2.8 m/s.
