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.

Q:

Deepa started a business in 2009 by investing Rs.50,000. She invested Rs. 20,000 as additional amount in 2010 and her friend Sushma joined her with an amount of Rs.70,000. Deepa invested another Rs. 20,000 in 2011 and Avanthi joined them with Rs. 70,000. At the end of these 3 years, they earned a profit of Rs. 3,00,000. Find Sushma's share ?

A) Rs. 75,000 B) Rs. 85,000
C) Rs. 98,000 D) Rs. 1,00,000
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) Rs. 1,00,000

Explanation:

Deepa invested Rs.50,000 for 12 months, Rs.(50000 + 20000) for 12 months and Rs.(50000 + 20000 + 20000) for 12 months.
i.e, she invested Rs.50,000 for 12 months, Rs.70000 for 12 months and Rs.90000 for 12 months.
Sushma invested Rs. 70000 for 2 years; i.e, Rs.70000 for 24 months
And, Avanthi invested Rs.70000 for 1 year; i.e, Rs. 70000 for 12 months.

Their investing ratio:
Deepa : Sushma : Avanthi = (50,000 x 12 + 70000 x 12 + 90000 x 12):(70000 x 24):(70000 x 12)
= (25,20,000):(16,80,000):(8,40,000) = 252:168:84 = 3:2:1

Total profit for 3 years = Rs.3,00,000
Therefore, Sushma's share = Rs.(3,00,000 x 2 /(3+2+1)) = Rs.(3,00,000 x 2/6) = Rs.1,00,000.
