**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

The distance travelled by the truck in 12 hours equals 12*70 = 840 km

Hence, the car travels 840 + 120 = 960 kms in 12 hours.

So, the average speed of the car equals $\frac{960}{12} = 80$ kmph

**2)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Time taken by the train to cross the pole is 70 seconds.

The length of the train is 420 metres.

Hence, the speed of the train is $\frac{420}{70}=6$ seconds.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Neela completes one round around the circular stadium in 10 seconds.

Saroj completes one round around the circular stadium in 6 seconds.

Paulami completes one round around the circular stadium in 14 seconds.

Hence, the three of them meet again at the starting point in LCM(10,6,14) seconds.

The least common multiple (LCM) of 10,6 and 14 is 210 seconds.

So, the three of them meet again after 210 seconds which is 3 minutes 30 seconds.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

The total distance travelled by the train equals 240+300 = 540 metres.

This distance is covered by the train in 27 seconds.

Hence, the speed of the train equals $\frac{540}{27} = 20$ m/s

This speed when converted to kmph equals $20 * \frac{18}{5} = 72$ kmph

As this is not given in the options, the correct answer is option (e)

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the length of the train be S.

So, the total distance travelled by the train while crossing the platform is S+200.

The speed of the train is 60 Kmph and the time taken is 27 seconds.

The speed of the train in m/s is $60*\frac{5}{18} = \frac{50}{3}$ m/s

So, $S+200 = \frac{50}{3}*27 = 450$

Hence, S = 250 metres.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the speed of the boat in still water be B and the speed of the water be W.

So, speed of the boat downstream is B+W and the speed of the boat upstream is B-W.

From the information given, the speed of the boat downstream is 16/2 = 8 kmph

Speed of the boat upstream is 16/4 = 4 kmph

Hence, B+W = 8 and B-W =4

So, B = 6 kmph and W = 2 kmph

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

66 kmph = 66 *5/18 m/s

It takes 18 secs to cross the post. So, length = 66 * 18* 5/18 = 330 metres.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the speed of car A be ‘x’ kmph and the speed of car B be ‘y’ kmph.

By the time car BÂ started running, car A covered 60 Km.

Distance covered by B in three hours is 3y

Distance covered by A in three hours is 3x

So, 3y = 3x + 60 or y=x+20

Hence, the speed of B is 20 kmph more than the speed of A. As we don’t know the speed of car B, we can’t find the exact speed of car A. We can just infer that the speed of car A is 20 kmph less than the speed of carÂ B.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The length of the train is 275 m.Â Hence, the length of the platform is also 275 m.

The train covers a total distance of 550 m in 33 seconds.

Hence, the speed of the train is $\frac{550}{33} = \frac{50}{3}$ m/s

To convert this speed into kmph, we need to multiply it by $\frac{18}{5}$

Hence, the speed of the train in kmph is $\frac{50}{3}*\frac{18}{5} = 60$ kmph

So, the correct option is option (b)

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the length of the train be ‘x’ metres

Length of the platform = 2x

Distance travelled by the train = x + 2x = 3x

Speed of the train = 60 kmph = $60 \times \frac{5}{18}$ m/sec

Distance = Speed $\times$ Time

$3x = 60 \times \frac{5}{18} \times 32.4$

$x = 180$

The length of the platform = 2x = 360 m

**11)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the length of the platform be ‘x’ metres

Distance travelled by the train = 160 + x

Speed of the train = 90 kmph = $90\times \frac{5}{18}$ = 25 m/sec

Distance = Speed $\times$ Time

$160 + x = 25 \times 18$

$x = 290$

Length of the platform = 290 m

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

In one hour, A fills 1/30th of the tank

In one hour, B fills 1/24th of the tank

In two hours, A and B alternately fill 1/30 + 1/24 = 4/120 + 5/120 = 9/120 = 3/40th of the tank

Hence, they will take 2/(3/40) = 80/3 hours to fill the tank.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the speed of the boat in still water be â€˜uâ€™.

Let the speed of the stream be â€˜vâ€™.

The speed of the boat upstream = u-v

The speed of the boat downstream = u+v

It is given that,

u-v = 8 and u+v = 18

Solving them we get, u = 13 and v = 5.

Thus the speed of the stream is 5 km/hr.

Hence the answer to this question is Option D.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Let the distance between A and B be ‘d’ km and time taken be ‘t’ hrs.

In both the cases, distance travelled is the same.

Distance = Speed $\times$ Time

Case (i) Time taken = 48 min late = (t + 0.8) hrs

$d = 5 \times (t + 0.8)$

Case (ii) Time taken = 15 min early = (t – 0.25) hrs

$d = 8 \times (t – 0.25)$

On equating them, we get

5t + 4 = 8t – 2

t = 2

Distance, d = 5 (2 + 0.8) = 14 km

**15)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Let the speed of Ram be ‘v’ kmph

Time taken by Shyam be ‘t’ hrs

Distance = Speed $\times$ Time

60 = v (t + 1)

After doubling the speed,

60 = 2v(t – 0.5)

Simplifying them, we get

v (t + 1) = 2v (t – 0.5)

t = 2

v = 60/3 = 20 kmph

**16)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the speed of boat in still water and speed of river be B km/hr and R km/hr respectively

Speed of boat in downstream = (B+R)km/hr

Speed of boat in upstream = (B-R) km/hr

It is given that $\frac{B-R}{B+R} = \frac{3}{4}$

we get , B = 7 R

Now it is given that boat covers 70 km in 3.5 hours downstream

so ,

70 = (B+R)3.5

B+R = 20

R = 2.5 km/hr

B = 17.5 km/hr

**17)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the speed of the train be x m/s

Speed of the man = 5km/hr = 1.388m/s

Relative speed of man when he is running in opposite direction = (x+1.388)

However train crossess him in 36 seconds = 350/36 =Â 9.722 m/s

x+1.388 = 9.722

x = 8.334 m/s

x = 30 km/hr

**18)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Let the speed of the boat be S and the speed of the stream be R.

So, 24 / 4 = 6 = S + R

24 / 6 = 4 = S – R

So, 2S = 10 => S = 5 and R = 1

So, speed of the boat in still water = 1 kmph

**19)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Distance = Speed $\times$ Time

Initial speed = 70 kmph

In first 2 hours, motor covers a distance = $70 \times 2 = 140~km$

Speed after 2 hours = 70 + 10 = 80 kmph

In the next 2 hours, it covers a distance = $80 \times 2 = 160~km$

Distance covered = 300 km

Now, the speed is 90 kmph

Remaining 45 km is covered in $\frac{45}{90}$ = 0.5 hr

Total time taken to cover 345 km = 2 + 2 + 0.5 = 4.5 hr

**20)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The number of days in 3 weeks is 3*7 = 21

Swati walks 150 metres everyday.

Hence, the distance covered by Swati in 3 weeks equals 150*21 = 3150 metres

1000 metres equal one kilometre. Hence, the distance covered by Swati in 3 weeks is 3.15 km
