**Question 1:**

Find the length of the train travelling with 90 kmph if it crossed a 600m bridge in 56 seconds ?

a) 950 m

b) 900 m

c) 850 m

d) 800 m

Answer: d

Solution:

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.

**Question 2:Â **

Find the distance covered by a boat in 30 mins during downstream, if its speed in still water is 7 kmph and speed of the stream is 5 kmph ?

a) 6 km

b) 7 km

c) 8 km

d) 9 km

Answer: a

RRB Group D previous year papers

**Solution:**

Relative speed during downstream = 7+5 = 12 kmph

Time = 30 mins = 1/2 hr = 0.5 hrs Distance = Speed*Time = 12*0.5 = 6 km

So the answer is option A.

**Question 3:**

3 men and 2 women can complete a work in 12 days, then in how many days can 6 men and 4 women complete the work ?

a) 4

b) 5

c) 6

d) 8

Answer: c

**Solution:**

3 men and 2 women can complete a work in 12 days

If persons are doubled, Days will be halved

Hence 6 men and 4 women can complete the work in 12/2 = 6 days

So the answer is option C.

**Question 4:**

Find the speed of a train of length 600m, which crossed a man standing on the platform in 24 seconds ?

a) 40 kmph

b) 80 kmph

c) 45 kmph

d) 90 kmph

Answer: d

**Solution:**

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

So the answer is option D.

**Question 5:**

Find the speed of a car which travelled 100 metres in 4.5 seconds ?

a) 60 kmph

b) 80 kmph

c) 100 kmph

d) 120 kmph

Answer: b

**Solution:**

Speed = distance/time = 100/4.5 m/s = (100/4.5)*(18/5) kmph = 20*4 = 80 kmph

So the answer is option B.

**Question 6:**

Find the distance covered by a boat in 30 mins during downstream, if its speed in still water is 7 kmph and speed of the stream is 5 kmph ?

a) 6 km

b) 7 km

c) 8 km

d) 9 km

Answer: a

**Solution:**

Relative speed during downstream = 7+5 = 12 kmph

Time = 30 mins = 1/2 hr = 0.5 hrs

Distance = Speed*Time = 12*0.5 = 6 km

So the answer is option A.
