Q:

Two trains started at the same time, one from A to B and the other from B to A . If they arrived at B and A respectively 4 hours and 9 hours after they passed each other the ratio of the speeds of the two trains was 

A) 2:1 B) 3:2
C) 4:3 D) 5:4

Answer:   B) 3:2

Explanation:

Note : If two trains (or bodies) start at the same time from points A and B towards each other and after crossing they take a and b sec in reaching B and A respectively, then: (A's speed) : (B's speed) = (b : a)

Therefore, Ratio of the speeds of two trains =  = 3 : 2

Q:

Two passenger trains start at the same hour in the day from two different stations and move towards each other at the rate of 16 kmph and 21 kmph respectively. When they meet, it is found that one train has traveled 60 km more than the other one. The distance between the two stations is ?

A) 387 kms B) 242 kms
C) 145 kms D) 444 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 444 kms

Explanation:

1h ----- 5 kms
? ------ 60 kms

Time = 12 hrs

Relative Speed = 16 + 21 = 37 kmph

T = 12 hrs

D = S x T = 37 x 12 = 444 kms.

Q:

A train covers a distance between station A and station B in 45 min.If the speed of the train is reduced by 5 km/hr,then the same distance is covered in 48 min.what is the distance between the stations A and B ?

A) 80 kms B) 60 kms
C) 45 kms D) 32 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 60 kms

Explanation:

Let 'd' be the distance and 's' be the speed and 't' be the time
d=sxt
45 mins = 3/4 hr and 48 mins = 4/5 hr
As distance is same in both cases;
s(3/4) = (s-5)(4/5)
3s/4 = (4s-20)/5
15s = 16s-80
s = 80 km.
=> d = 80 x 3/4 = 60 kms.

Q:

A train for Fathehpur leaves for every 2 hrs 30 min from Agra station. An announcement was made that train left 37 mins ago and next train comes at 17:00hrs. At what time was the announcement made ? 

A) 15:07 hrs B) 15:20 hrs
C) 15:05 hrs D) 15:00 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 15:07 hrs

Explanation:

Next train comes at 17:00 hrs.
So, last train will be = 17:00hrs - 2:30hrs
= 14:30hrs
Announcement made after 37 min of the last train.
S0, 14:30hrs + 00:37 min
= 15:07 hrs.

Q:

A train moving at 2/3 rd of its normal speed reaches its destination 20 minutes late. Find the normal time taken ?

A) 4/3 hrs B) 2/3 hrs
C) 3/2 hrs D) 1/4 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2/3 hrs

Explanation:

Let the original speed and time is S and T
then distance = S x T
Now the speed changes to 2/3S and T is T+20
As the distance is same
S x T = 2/3Sx(T+20)
solving this we get t = 40 minutes
=40/60 = 2/3 hour

Q:

Train K crosses a stationary Train L in 50 seconds and a pole in 20 seconds with the same speed. The length of the Train K is 240 meters. What is the length of stationary Train L ?

A) 60 mts B) 120 mts
C) 240 mts D) 360 mts
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 360 mts

Explanation:

Speed of the Train K is given by s = d/t = 240/20 = 12 m/s
Distance covered by Train K in 50 seconds = 12 x 50 = 600 mts.
But it crosses Train L in 50 seconds
Therefore, the length of the Train L is = 600 - 240 = 360 mts.
