**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

LCM of 10 and 20 is 20 and so total units of work has to be done.

Each day P can do 2 units of work

Each day Q can do 1 unit of work

After 2 days 6 units of work is done so 14 units is left

Given in next 2 days work has been completed along with C.

So 2(1+2+x)=14

3+x=7

x=4

C does 4 units of work each day and so it takes 5 days for him to complete the whole work.

**2) Answer (A)**

Let the total work be 42 units (LCM of 14 and 21)

Efficiency of A = 42/14 = 3 units/hour

Efficiency of B = 42/21 = 2 units/hour

A is assisted by B on every alternate hour

A can complete 3 units of work in first hour

A and B can complete 5 units of work in second hour.

Hence, 8 units of work will be completed in 2 hours.

Then, 40 units of work will be completed in 10 hours.

Remaining work = 2 units.

A can do 2 units of work in 2/3rd of an hour = $\dfrac{2}{3}\times60 = 40$ minutes

Therefore, Total work will be completed in 10 hours 40 minutes.

**3) Answer (B)**

Let the total work be 60 units (LCM of 12 and 20)

Efficiency of A = 60/12 = 5 units/hr

Efficiency of B = 60/20 = 3 units/hr

They work on alternate days.

Then, A and B can do 8 units in 2 hours.

⇒ 56 units of work will be completed in 14 hours.

Remaining work = 4 units

A can complete 5 units in 1 hour

Then, 4 units of work can be completed by A in 4/5th of an hour = $\dfrac{4}{5}\times60 = 48 min

Therefore, Total work will be completed in 14 hours 48 min.

**4) Answer (C)**

Let the total work be 48 units (LCM of 12,16 and 24).

Efficiency of A = 48/12 = 4 units/day

Efficiency of B = 48/16 = 3 units/day

Efficiency of C = 48/24 = 2 units/day

Then, Total work done by A,B,C in one day = 9 units

In 4 days, 36 units of work will be completed.

Remaining work = 48-36 = 12 units.

12 units will be completed by C in 12/2 = 6 days.

Therefore, Total work will be done in 4+6 = 10 days

**5) Answer (B)**

Let the speed of boat upstream be 3x km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = 4x km/hr

Then speed of stream = 4x-3x = x km/hr

Given x = 24 km/hr

Then, Speed of boat downstream = 4x+x = 5x km/hr = 5*24 = 120 km/hr

**6) Answer (D)**

Relative speed $= 56-38 = 18 km/hr = 18\times\dfrac{5}{18} = 5 m/sec$

Faster train crosses a man in slower train in 24 seconds.

Length of the faster train = 5*24 = 120 m

**7) Answer (C)**

Due to stoppages, the bus travelled 30 km less in an hour.

Time required to travel 30 km without stoppages = $= \dfrac{30}{75}\times60 = 24$ min

**8) Answer (C)**

Let the speed of boat upstream = 5x km/hr

Let the speed of boat downstream = 14x km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = (14x+5x)/2= 19x/2 km/hr

Speed of stream = Speed of boat in still water – Speed of boat upstream = (19x/2) – 5x = 9x/2 km/hr

Given Speed of stream = 18 km/hr

9x/2 = 18

⇒ 9x = 36

⇒ x = 4

Then, Speed of boat in still water = 19*4/2 = 38 km/hr

**9) Answer (B)**

Let the onward and return distance be 60 km (LCM of 60 and 30)

Time taken for onward journey = 60/60 = 1 hour

Time taken for return journey = 60/30 = 2 hours

Total time = 3 hours

Total distance = 60+60 = 120 km

Average speed = Total Distance/Total Time = 120/3 = 40 km/hr

**10) Answer (D)**

Let the onward distance be d km

As the distance is same, return distance = d km

Total distance = 2d km

Time to travel from his home to his office $=\dfrac{d}{40}$ hr

Time to travel from his office to his home $ =\dfrac{d}{60}$ hr

Average speed = $\dfrac{Total distance}{Total time}

$= \dfrac{2d}{(\dfrac{d}{40})+(\dfrac{d}{60})$

$ = \dfrac{2d}{(\dfrac{5d}{120}) = 48 km/hr

**11) Answer (D)**

Given that the distance $= 480$ km

Let the speed of the train $= x$ km/hr

Then, time in which it can travel $240$ km $= \dfrac{480}{x}$ hr

Now, Speed is reduced by $8$ km/hr

Reduced speed $= (x-8)$ km/hr

Time in which it can travel $240$ km at reduced speed $= \dfrac{480}{(x-10)}$

Difference in time = 3 hours

⇒ $\dfrac{480}{(x-8)} – \dfrac{480}{x} = 3$

⇒ $\dfrac{480(x-x+8)}{x^2-8x} = 3$

⇒ $3640 = 3(x^2-8x)$

⇒ $x^2-8x-1280 = 0$

⇒ $x^2-40x+32x-1280 = 0$

⇒ $x(x-40)+32(x-40) = 0$

⇒ $(x-40)(x+32) = 0$

$x-40 = 0$ | $ x+32 = 0$

$x = 40$ | $x = -32$

Speeds cannot be negative.

Hence, Initial speed $= 40$ km/hr

**12) Answer (B)**

Given that the distance $= 240$ km

Let the speed of the train $= x$ km/hr

Then, time in which it can travel $240$ km $= \dfrac{240}{x}$ hr

Now, Speed is reduced by $10$ km/hr

Reduced speed $= (x-10)$ km/hr

Time in which it can travel $240$ km at reduced speed $= \dfrac{240}{(x-10)}$

Difference in time = 4 hours

⇒ $\dfrac{240}{(x-10)} – \dfrac{240}{x} = 4$

⇒ $\dfrac{240(x-x+10)}{x^2-10x} = 4$

⇒ $2400 = 4(x^2-10x)$

⇒ $x^2-10x-600 = 0$

⇒ $x^2-30x+20x-600 = 0$

⇒ $x(x-30)+20(x-30) = 0$

⇒ $(x+20)(x-30) = 0$

x+20 = 0 | x-30 = 0

x = -20 | x = 30

Speeds cannot be negative.

Hence, Initial speed = 30 km/hr

**13) Answer (D)**

Let the speed of boat upstream = x km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = 2x km/hr

Speed of stream = 2x-x = x km/hr

Speed of boat downstream = 2x+x = 3x km/hr

Required ratio = 3x:x = 3:1

**14) Answer (C)**

Given, Speed of boat downstream = 54 km/hr

Speed of current = 14 km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = 54-14 = 40 km/hr

Speed of boat upstream = Speed of boat in still water – Speed of current = 40-14 = 26 km/hr

**15) Answer (A)**

Let the speed of stream = x km/hr

Speed of boat in still water = 3x km/hr

Then, Speed of boat upstream = 3x-x = 2x km/hr

Speed of boat downstream = 3x+x = 4x km/hr

Required ratio = 2x : 4x = 1:2

**16) Answer (B)**

Let the speed of boat upstream = 2x km/hr

Speed of boat downstream = 4x km/hr

Then speed of boat in still water = (2x+4x)/2 = 6x/2 = 3x km/hr

Speed of current = 4x-3x = x km/hr

Required ratio = 3x:x = 3:1

**17) Answer (B)**

Let the length of the train be ‘x’ m

Total distance it needs to travel to cross the platform = (180+x) m

Equating speeds

$\dfrac{180+x}{16} = \dfrac{x}{4}

⇒ x+180 = 4x

⇒ 3x = 180

⇒ x = 60

Hence, Length of the train = 60 m

**18) Answer (A)**

Total distance travelled by the train to cross the platform = 120+160 = 280 m

Time = 14 seconds

Speed of the train in m/sec = 280/14 = 20 m/sec

Speed of the train in km/hr = $\dfrac{20\times18}{5} = 72 km/hr$

**19) Answer (D)**

Let x be the length of the train,

Speed = 90 kmph = 90*(5/18) = 25 m/s

Distance = Speed*time

x+600 = 25*(56) = 1400

x = 1400 – 600 = 800m

So the answer is option D.

**20) Answer (D)**

Speed = distance/time = 600/24 = 25 m/s = 25*(18/5) = 5*18 = 90 kmph

So the answer is option D.

**21) Answer (C)**

Let the number of children = c

Number of children is proportional to quantity of chocolates and inversely proportional to number of days.

==> $\frac{(12)(6)}{48} = \frac{(c)(6)}{72}$

==> $3/2 = c/12$

==> $ c = 18$

So the answer is option C.

**22) Answer (A)**

Let the speed of train X is x kmph

Relative speed = 90-x kmph (if train Y is faster than train X)

Speed = distance/time = (850+950)/(6*60) = 1800/360 = 5 m/s = 5*(18/5) = 18 kmph

90 – x = 18 kmph

x = 90 – 18 = 72 kmph

So the answer is option A.

Case 2 :(If train Y is slower than train X)

x – 90 = 18, then x = 90 + 18 = 108 kmph

**23) Answer (D)**

6 hrs 30 mins = 6.5 hrs

Speed = $\frac{distance}{time} = \frac{2210}{6.5} = 340 kmph$

SO the answer is option D.

**24) Answer (A)**

Time in case 1 = x/60 hrs

Time in case 2 = 2x/40 = x/20 hrs

Total time = x/60 + x/20 = x/15 hrs

Total distance = x+2x = 3x km

Average speed = total distance/ total time = (3x)/(x/15) = 45 kmph

So the answer is option A.

**25) Answer (D)**

50.4 kmph = 50.4*(5/18) = 14 m/s

Distance = speed*time

x+200 = (14)*(50)

x+200 = 700

x = 500m

So the answer is option D.
