Q:

A Person X started at 3 hours earlier  at 40km/h from a place P, then another person Y followed him at 60km/h. Started his journey at 3 O'clock, afternoon. What is the diference in time when X was30 km ahead of Y and when Y was 30 km ahead of X?

A) 2h B) 3h
C) 3.5h D) 4.25h

Answer:   B) 3h

Explanation:

Time ( when X was 30 km ahead of Y) = (120-30)/20 =4.5h

Time ( when Y was 30 km ahead of X) = (120+30)/20 = 7.5 h

Thus, required  difference in time = 3h

Q:

An employee may claim Rs. 7.00 for each km when he travels by taxi and Rs. 6.00 for each km if he drives his own car. If in one week he claimed Rs. 595 for traveling 90 km. How many kms did he travel by taxi ?

A) 55 kms B) 35 kms
C) 25 kms D) 65 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 55 kms

Explanation:

Let x and y be the respective km's travelled by man via taxi and by his own car.
Given x + y = 90 => x = 90 - y
But according to the question,
7x + 6y = 595
7(90-y) + 6y = 595
=> 630 - 7y + 6y = 595
=> y = 630 - 595 = 35
=> x = 90 - 35 = 55
Therefore, the distance travelled by taxi is 55 kms.

Q:

K is 50% faster than L. If L starts at 9 A.M. and K starts at 10 A.M. L travels at a speed of 50 km/hr. If L and K are 300 kms apart, The time when they meet when they travel in opposite direction is ?

A) 12 pm B) 1 pm
C) 11 am D) 11:30 am
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 12 pm

Explanation:

let 't' be the time after which they met since L starts.

Given K is 50% faster than L

50 t + 1.5*50(t-1) = 300

50 t +75 t = 300 + 75

t = 375 / 125 = 3 hrs past the time that L starts

So they meet at (9 + 3)hrs = 12:00 noon.

Q:

A goods truck travels from a place at a certain time and at fixed speed. After 6hrs another truck leaves the same place and move in same direction of uniform speed of 90kmph. The truck catches up the goods truck in 4hrs. Find the speed of the goods truck ?

A) 36 kmph B) 32 kmph
C) 28 kmph D) 34 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 36 kmph

Explanation:

Let the speed of goods truck be 'p' kmph
Distance covered by goods truck in 10hrs (4+6) = Distance covered by other truck in 4 hrs.
10p = 4 x 90
p = 36kmph.
Therefore, the speed of the goods truck is p = 36 kmph.

Q:

A man covers a distance of 1200 km in 70 days resting 9 hours a day, if he rests 10 hours a day and walks with speed 1½ times of the previous in how many days will he cover 840 km ?

A) 39 days B) 37 days
C) 35 days D) 33 days
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 35 days

Explanation:

Distance d = 1200km
let S be the speed

he walks 15 hours a day(i.e 24 - 9)
so totally he walks for 70 x 15 = 1050hrs.

S = 1200/1050 => 120/105 = 24/21 => 8/7kmph


given 1 1/2 of previous speed
so 3/2 * 8/7= 24/14 = 12/7

New speed = 12/7kmph

Now he rests 10 hrs a day that means he walks 14 hrs a day.

time = 840 x 7 /12 => 490 hrs
=> 490/14 = 35 days

So he will take 35 days to cover 840 km.

Q:

You drive to the store at 20 kmph and return by the same route at 30 kmph. Discounting the time spent at the store, what was your average speed ?

A) 25 kmph B) 24 kmph
C) 26 kmph D) 22 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 24 kmph

Explanation:

Average speed=total distance/total time
Let distance to store be  K
then, total time =(K/20)+(K/30)=K/12
and, total time =(2K)
so average speed= 2K / (K/12) = 24kmph.
