**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

The frog jumps back and forth

**2) Answer (D)**

**3) Answer (C)**

**4) Answer (D)**

let the speeds be 2x and 5x.

As both the trains are moving towards each other their relative velocity will be 2x+5x=7x

Therefore 280/7x =4/3

x=120/4

x=30 km/hr

dIfference=5x-2x

=3x

=90 km/hr

**5) Answer (C)**

let the speeds be x and 2x.

As both the trains are moving towards each other their relative velocity will be x+2x=3x

Therefore 200/3x =8/3

x=200/8

x=25 km/hr

dIfference=2x-x

=x

=25 km/hr

**6) Answer (A)**

Speed of second train = $\frac{800}{5}=160$ km/hr

Ratio of speeds of first train to second train = 3 : 4

=> Speed of first train = $\frac{3}{4}\times160=120$ km/hr

=> Ans – (A)

**7) Answer (C)**

As both are travelling in opposite directions relative velocity=62+82=144 km/hr

144*5/18 =40 m/s

Total distance=155+95

=240 m

Time taken=240/40

=6 sec

**8) Answer (C)**

Let the distance between A and B be ‘d’

speed of Q be q

‘t’ be the time taken for them to meet

d/(90+q) =t

d/(t+10)=q

d/(t+(5/2))=90

d=90t+225

d=90t+qt

d=qt+10q

qt=225

q=9t

$t^{2}$=25

t=5 hours

q=9*5=45 km/hr

**9) Answer (B)**

Time taken by train-1 to cross the man = 25 seconds

Time taken by train-2 to cross the man = 32 seconds

Time taken by trains to cross each other = 30 seconds

**10) Answer (B)**

**11) Answer (C)**

Let the speeds of the trains be 2x kmph and 5x kmph

Given that the speed of the faster train = 120 kmph

5x = 120

⇒ x = 24

Difference between their speeds = 5x – 2x = 3x = 3*24 = 72 kmph.

**12) Answer (C)**

Speed of the faster train = 800/4 = 200 km/hr

Faster train: 4 → 200 km/hr

1 → 50 km/hr

Slower train: 3 → 150 km/hr

Hence, The speed of the slower train = 150 km/hr

**13) Answer (A)**

**14) Answer (B)**

Relative speed $= 48-30 = 18 km/hr = 18\times\dfrac{5}{18} = 5 m/sec$

Faster train crosses a man in slower train in 22 seconds.

Length of the faster train = 5*22 = 110 m

**15) Answer (C)**

Speed of A, $a = \dfrac{900}{9} = 100$ km/hr

Speed of B, $b = \dfrac{4}{5} \times 100 = 80$ km/hr

On day 1, distance travelled by A before B starts = $2 \times 100 = 200$ kms.

When B starts moving, the relative speed between A and B, $r = 100+80 = 180$ km/hr

When B starts moving, the distance between A and B = 900 – 200 = 700 kms.

Thus, time taken for the 2 trains to meet = $\dfrac{700}{180} = \dfrac{35}{9}$ hours.

Location of point P = $\dfrac{35}{9} \times 80$ from Y = $\dfrac{2800}{9} $ kms from Y

On day 2, distance travelled by B before A starts = $2 \times 80 = 160$ kms.

When B starts moving, the relative speed between A and B, $r = 100+80 = 180$ km/hr

When B starts moving, the distance between A and B = 900 – 160 = 740 kms.

Thus, time taken for the 2 trains to meet = $\dfrac{740}{180} = \dfrac{37}{9}$ hours.

Location of point Q = $\dfrac{37}{9} \times 100$ from Y = $\dfrac{3700}{9} $ kms from Y

Therefore, distance between P and Q = $\dfrac{3700}{9} – \dfrac{2800}{9} = 100$ kms.
