**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

Let the required distance be $x$ km

Acc to ques :

=> $\frac{x}{35} – \frac{x}{40} = \frac{15}{60}$

=> $\frac{8x – 7x}{280} = \frac{1}{4}$

=> $x = \frac{280}{4} = 70$ km

**2) Answer (A)**

Let the speed of the person be $x$ km/h and speed of stream be $y$ km/h

=> Speed when going upstream = $(x – y)$ km/h

and speed while going downstream = $(x + y)$ km/h

=> $\frac{1}{x – y} = \frac{10}{60}$

=> $x – y = 6$

Also, $\frac{1}{x + y} = \frac{4}{60}$

=> $x + y = 15$

Subtracting the two equations, we get :

$2y = 9$

=> Speed of stream = $y = 4.5$ km/h

**3) Answer (C)**

1st train crosses milestone in 15 seconds.

=> Speed of 1st train = $\frac{150}{15}$ = 10 m/s

Length of 2nd train = 150 m

Let speed of 2nd train = $x$ m/s

Acc to ques :

=> $\frac{150 + 150}{x + 10} = 12$

=> $x + 10 = 25$

=> $x = 25 – 10 = 15$ m/s

=> Speed of 2nd train = $15 * \frac{18}{5}$ km/h

= 54 km/h

**4) Answer (C)**

When two bodies move in the same direction their relative speed is the difference of their speeds.

The relative speed between the police and the thief is 1 km per hour.

1km per hour = 1 km in 60 minutes.

Therefore 100 m in 6 minutes.This is the distance between them after 6 minutes.

Hence Option C is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (D)**

Let us consider the capacity of the tank to be 48 litres.

Pipe A fills it in 8 hours at 6 litres per hour.

Pipe B fills it in 6 hours at 8 litres per hour.

Total of 28 litres would be filled in 2 hours with both pipes open.

Afetr 2 hours Pipe A is closed.Hence Pipe B has to fill the remaining tank.

Quantity of water needed to fill the tank is =48-28 = 20 litres.

Pipe B fills at the rate of 8 litres per hour.

Hence it takes 2.5 hours for Pipe B to fill remaining 20 litres of the tank.

Hence Option D is the correct answer.

**6) Answer (A)**

When speed is 5 km/hour time is t + (7/60) hours

When speed is 6 km/hour time is t – (5/60) hours

Distance is same.Hence the product of speed and time must be same.

5 (t + (7/60)) = 6(t – (5/60)

5t + (7/12) = 6t – (1/2)

t=(7/12)+(1/2)

t = 13/12 hours

Distance = 5 ( t + (7/60) )

=5t + (7/12)

=5 (13/12) + (7/12) = 72/12

=6 kms.

Hence Option A is the correct answer.

**7) Answer (B)**

Speed = $s$

Time =$ t mins$

Time taken when the man walks at $\frac{6}{7}$ th of his speed $= t+12$

Since distance is same the product of speed and time must be same.

$\frac{6\times (t+12)}{7} = t$

t= 72 mins = 1 hour and 12 minutes

Hence Option B is the correct answer.

**8) Answer (A)**

Three fourth of the work A is equal to half of what B had done.

Work done by A $=\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{3}{4}$ Work done by B $= \frac{2}{3}$ Work done by B

Work is completed in 18 days when both A and B work together.

$ 18 \times (A+B)$ $=1$

Replacing A with $\frac{2}{3}B$

$ 18 \times (\frac{2}{3}B+B) =1$

$ 18 \times (\frac{5}{3}B) =1$

$B=30$

Hence Option A is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (B)**

When speed is 2.5 km/hour time = t + (6/60) hours

When speed is 3 km/hour time is t – (10/60) hours

Distance is same.Hence the product of speed and time must be same.

2.5 (t + (6/60)) = 3(t – (10/60)

2.5t + (15/60) = 3t – (30/60)

0.5t=(15/60)+(30/60)

0.5t = 45/60 hours

t = 3/2 hours

Distance = 3 ( t – (10/60) )

=3t – (30/60)

=3 (3/2) – (30/60) = (9/2)-(1/2) = (8/2)=4 kms

Hence Option B is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (B)**

Speed $= 2km/hr = \frac{100}{3} m/min$

Volume of water flowing into sea = Depth of river $\times$ Width of River $\times$ Rate of flow

$=3 \times 40 \times \frac{100}{3} = 4000 m^3$

$1 m^3 = 1000$ litres

Volume of water flowing into sea $= 40,00,000$ litres

Hence Option B is the correct answer.
