A) 500 B) 600

Q:

A boy can swim in still water at 4.5 km/h, but takes twice as long to swim upstream than downstream. The speed of the stream is ?

A) 1.8 kmph B) 2 kmph
C) 2.2 kmph D) 1.5 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 1.5 kmph

Explanation:

Speed of Boy is B = 4.5 kmph

Let the speed of the stream is S = x kmph

Then speed in Down Stream = 4.5 + x

speed in Up Stream = 4.5 - x

As the distance is same,

=> 4.5 + x = (4.5 - x)2

=> 4.5 + x = 9 -2x

3x = 4.5

x = 1.5 kmph

Q:

In a mens hostel, there were 95 students. To accommodate 30 more students the average is decreased by rupees 5. But total expenditure increased by Rs.500. Find the total expenditure of the hostel now ?

A) Rs. 4680 B) Rs. 4420
C) Rs. 4960 D) Rs. 5480
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Rs. 4680

Explanation:

Let the expenditure on the 95 students be 'x'

Then,

95x + 500 = 120(x – 5)
95x + 500 = 120x - 600
120x - 95x = 1100
25x = 1100
=> x = 44

Therefore, total expenditure of the hostel becomes
95 x 44 + 500 = 4680.
