Q:

Ram and Raj start a business with investments of Rs. 2500 and Rs. 2250 respectively. After 2 months, Ram takes out Rs.1250 from his capital. After 1 more month, Raj takes out Rs.750 of his capital while Rakesh joins them with a capital of Rs. 3500. At the end of 6 months, they earn a profit of Rs. 2540. Which of the following is the share of each member in the profit ?

A) Ram - Rs. 800, Raj - Rs. 900, Rakesh - Rs. 840 B) Ram - Rs. 900, Raj - Rs. 800, Rakesh - Rs. 840
C) Ram - Rs. 840, Raj - Rs. 920, Rakesh - Rs. 840 D) Ram - Rs. 800, Raj - Rs. 900, Rakesh - Rs. 940
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Ram - Rs. 800, Raj - Rs. 900, Rakesh - Rs. 840

Explanation:

Initial investment of Ram = Rs.2500.
After 2 months he withdraw Rs.1250 from his capital.
Therefore, we have, Ram invested Rs.2500 for 2 months and Rs.(2500-1250=) 1250 for 4 months.

Raj invested Rs. 2250 for 3 months and Rs.(2250-750=) 1500 for 3 months.

And, Rakesh invested Rs.3500 for 3 months;

Their investing ratio:
Ram:Raj:Rakesh = (2500x2 + 1250x4):(2250x3 + 1500x3):(3500x3)
= (10,000):(11,250):(10,500) = 1000:1125:1050 = 40:45:42

Total profit for 6 months = Rs.2540
Therefore, Ram's share = Rs.(2540 x 40/(40+45+42)) = Rs.(2540 x 40/127) = Rs.800
Raj's share = Rs.(2540 x 45/127) = Rs.900
Rakesh's share = Rs.(2540 x 42/127) = Rs.840

Q:

Without any stoppage, a person travels a certain distance at an average speed of 42 km/h, and with stoppages he covers the same distance at an average speed of 28 km/h. How many minutes per hour does he stop?

A) 15 minutes B) 20 minutes
C) 18 minutes D) 22 minutes
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 20 minutes

Explanation:

Let the total distance to be covered is 84 kms.
Time taken to cover the distance without stoppage = 84/42 hrs = 2 hrs
Time taken to cover the distance with stoppage = 84/28 = 3 hrs.
Thus, he takes 60 minutes to cover the same distance with stoppage.
Therefore, in 1 hour he stops for 20 minutes.
