Q:

Two trains are moving in opposite directions at 60 km/hr and 90 km/hr. Their lengths are 1.10 km and 0.9 km respectively. The time taken by the slower train to cross the faster train in seconds is ?

A) 42 sec B) 44 sec
C) 46 sec D) 48 sec

Answer:   D) 48 sec



Explanation:

Relative speed = 60 + 90 = 150 km/hr.

= 150 x 5/18 = 125/3 m/sec.

Distance covered = 1.10 + 0.9 = 2 km = 2000 m.

Required time = 2000 x 3/125 = 48 sec.

Q:

A passenger train covers the distance between station K and L, 40 minutes faster than a goods train. Find this distance between K and L if the average speed of the passenger train is 50 km/h and that of goods train is 30 km/h?

A) 50 kms B) 48 kms
C) 46 kms D) 44 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 50 kms

Explanation:

Let the distance be 'd' kms.

According to the given data,

d30 - d50 = 4060 hrs=> 6d = 300=> d = 50 kms.

Q:

A train travelling with a speed of 60 km/hr catches another train travelling in the same direction and then leaves it 120m behind in 18 seconds. The speed of the second train is

A) 42 kmph B) 72 kmph
C) 36 kmph D) 44 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 36 kmph

Explanation:

Given speed of the first train = 60 km/hr = 60 x 5/18 = 50/3 m/s

Let the speed of the second train = x m/s

Then, the difference in the speed is given by

503 - x = 12018

=> x = 10 m/s

=> 10 x 18/5 = 36 km/hr

Q:

Two trains are running at 40 km/hr and 20 km/hr respectively in the same direction. Fast train completely passes a man sitting in the slower train in 5 seconds. What is the length of the fast train?

A) 27 7/9 mts B) 25 8/7 mts
C) 21 1/4 mts D) 22 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 27 7/9 mts

Explanation:
Relative speed = (40 - 20) km/hr = ( 20 x 5 ( m/sec = ( 50 ( m/sec.
18 9
Therefore Length of faster train = ( 50 x 5 ( m = 250 m = 27 7 m.

Q:

A train is moving and crossing a man who is running on a  platform of 100 m at a speed of 8 kmph in the direction of the train, in 9 sec. If the speed of the train is 74 kmph. Find the length of the train ?

A) 202 mts B) 188 mts
C) 165 mts D) 156 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 165 mts

Explanation:

Let the length of the train = L mts

Relative speed of train and man = 74 - 8 = 66 kmph = 66 x 5/18 m/s

=> 66 x 5/18 = L/9

=> L = 165 mts.

Q:

A train travelling at 48 kmph crosses another train, having half its length and travelling in opposite direction at 42 kmph, in 12 sec. It also covers a bridge in 45 sec. Find the length of the bridge ?

A) 250 mts B) 400 mts
C) 320 mts D) 390 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 400 mts

Explanation:

Let the length of the 1st train = L mts

Speed of 1st train = 48 kmph

Now the length of the 2nd train = L/2 mts

Speed of 2nd train = 42 kmph

Let the length of the bridge = D mts

Distance = L + L/2 = 3L/2

Relative speed = 48 + 42 = 90 kmph = 90 x 5/18 = 25 m/s(opposite)

Time = 12 sec

=> 3L/2x25 = 12

=> L = 200 mts

Now it covers the bridge in 45 sec

=> distance = D + 200

Time = 45 sec

Speed = 48 x5/18 = 40/3 m/s

=> D + 200/(40/3) = 45

=> D = 600 - 200 = 400 mts

Hence, the length of the bridge = 400 mts.

Q:

The difference between the time taken by two trains to travel a distance of 350 km is 2 hours 20 minutes. If the difference between their speeds is 5 km/hr, what is the speed of faster train ?

A) 36 kmph B) 30 kmph
C) 34 kmph D) 40 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 30 kmph

Explanation:

Let the speed of the faster train be 'S' kmph

 

Then speed of the slower train will be '(S-5)' kmph

 

Time taken by faster train = 350/S hrs

 

Time taken by slower train = 350/(S-5) hrs

 350s-5 - 350s = 2 hrs 20 min = 213 = 73

 

=> S = 30 km/hr.

Q:

Find the length of a train if it takes 10 seconds to cross a pole and double of this time to cross a platform of length 200 mts ?

A) 180 mts B) 190 mts
C) 200 mts D) 210 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 200 mts

Explanation:

Let the length of the train be 'L' mts

let the speed of the train be 'S' m/s

Given it crosses a pole in 10 sec=> L/S = 10 ......(1)
Given it takes 20 sec (double of pole) to cross a platform of length 200 mts

=> (L + 200)/S = 20

=> L/S + 200/S = 20

But from (1) L/S = 10

=> 200/S = 20 - 10

=> S = 20 m/s

Then, from (1)

=> L = 10 x 20 = 200 mts.

Hence, the length of the train = 200 mts.

Q:

The length of two superfast trains are 140 mts and 160 mts respectively. If they run at the speed of 60 km/hr and 80 km/hr respectively in opposite direction, find the time in which they will cross each other ? 

A) 7.71 sec B) 10.48 sec
C) 9.36 sec D) 8.45 sec
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 7.71 sec

Explanation:

Given L1 = 140 m

L2 = 160 m

S1 = 60 km/hr

S2 = 80 km/hr

From the question we get,

S1 + S2 = (L1 + L2) / T

=> (60 + 80) 5/18 m/s = 140 + 160/T

=> T = 54/7 = 7.71 sec
