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


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

Two bike riders ride in opposite directions around a circular track, starting at the same time from the same point. Biker A rides at a speed of 16 kmph and biker B rides at a speed of 14 kmph. If the track has a diameter of 40 km, after how much time (in hours) will the two bikers meet?

A) 6.52 B) 8.14
C) 4.18 D) 5.02
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 4.18


Distance to be covered =  = 40  km

Relative speed of bikers = 16 + 14 = 30 kmph.

Now,  =   = 4.18 hrs.

A man is riding a bike with front and back wheel circumference of 40 inches and 70 inches respectively. If the man rides the bike on a straight road without slippage, how many inches will the man have travelled when the front wheel has made 15 revolutions more than the back wheel?

A) 1100 B) 1300
C) 1400 D) 1200
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 1400


Given the ratio of the circumference of front wheel  is 40 inches and back wheel is 70 inches 

Distance covered = Circumference of the wheel × No. of Revolutions made by the wheel

If n is the number of revolutions made by back wheel, the number of revolutions made by front wheel is n+15

Distance covered by both the wheels is the same



                Front wheel    :      Back Wheel

Circumference       40      :      70

Revolutions           35      :      20

Distance covered             40×35 = 70×20 = 1400 inches.

Two trains 85 m and 75 m long are running in same direction with speeds of 62 km/hr and 44 km/hr respectively. In what time will the first train cross the second train ?

A) 22 sec B) 32 sec
C) 42 sec D) 52 sec
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 32 sec


Given that,

1st train speed = 62 km/hr 

2nd train speed  = 44 km/hr

Hence the relative speed of two trains is 62-44 = 18 km/hr   m/s = 5 m/s.

There fore, the first train crosses the second train i.e (85+75)mts of distance with a speed of 5m/s in,


time   = 32 sec.
