Q:

Den Bosch and Eastbourne are two famous cities 300 km apart. Maradona starts from Den Bosch at 8:24 am . An hour later pele starts from Den Bosch. After travelling for 1 hour , Pele reaches Nottingham that Maradona had passed 40 minutes earlier. Nottingham falls on the way from Den Bosch to Eastbourne. If pele and Maradona just reaches  Eastbourne at the same time, what are thespeeds of the Maradona and Pele Respectively? 

A) 100 km/h , 125 km/h B) 60 km/h , 80 km/h
C) 60 km/h , 75 km/h D) 75 km/h , 100 km/h

Answer:   D) 75 km/h , 100 km/h

Explanation:

Let Pele x km in 1 hour. so Maradona takes (2h-40min)=1 h 20 min to cover x km. Let speed of Maradona and Pele be M and P respectively than 

                          x = \inline M\times \frac{4}{3}  and x= P x 1

    \inline \Rightarrow              \inline \frac{M}{P}=\frac{3}{4}

Again            \inline \frac{300}{M}=\frac{300}{P}=1

    \inline \Rightarrow \: \: \frac{300}{3k}-\frac{300}{4k}=1

    \inline \Rightarrow  k= 25

    \inline \Rightarrow  M= 3k = 75 km/h

and     P= 4k = 100 km/h

( Through options it is very easy to solve)

    

Q:

Two motor bikes cover the same distance at the speed of 60 and 64 kmps respectively. Find the distance traveled by them if the slower bike takes 1 hour more than the faster bike ?

A) 1102 km B) 1060 km
C) 960 km D) 1250 km
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 960 km

Explanation:

60(x + 1) = 64x

X = 15

60 x 16 = 960 km

Q:

A man whose speed is 4.5 kmph in still water rows to a certain upstream point and back to the starting point in a river which flows at 1.5 kmph, find his average speed for the total journey ?

A) 5 kmph B) 7 kmph
C) 3 kmph D) 4 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 4 kmph

Explanation:

Speed of Man = 4.5 kmph
Speed of stream = 1.5 kmph
Speed in DownStream = 6 kmph
Speed in UpStream = 3 kmph
Average Speed = (2 x 6 x 3)/9 = 4 kmph.

Q:

The current of a stream at 1 kmph. A motor boat goes 35 km upstream and back to the starting point in 12 hours. The speed of the motor boat in still water is ?

A) 8 kmph B) 6 kmph
C) 7.5 kmph D) 5.5 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 6 kmph

Explanation:

Speed of the stream = 1
Motor boat speed in still water be = x kmph
Down Stream = x + 1 kmph
Up Stream = x - 1 kmph
[35/(x + 1)] + [35/(x - 1)] = 12
x = 6 kmph

Q:

A Bus is running at 9/10 of its own speed reached a place in 22 hours. How much time could be saved if the bus would run at its own speed ?

A) 1.5 hrs B) 1.7 hrs
C) 2.2 hrs D) 3.5 hrs
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 2.2 hrs

Explanation:

Let the original Speed be "s" kmph
And the usual time be "t" hrs
Given that if the bus is running at 9s/10 kmph the time is 22 hrs
=> [9s/10] x 22 = t x s
=> 99/5 = t
=> t = 19.8 hrs

 

Hence, if bus runs at its own speed, the time saved = 22 - 19.8 = 2.2 hrs.

C) 38 D) 42
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 48

Explanation:

Here distance d = 800 mts
speed s = 63 - 3 = 60 kmph = 60 x 5/18 m/s
time t = = 48 sec.
