Q:

If a student walks at the rate of 4 mts/min from his home, he is 4 minutes late for school, if he walks at the rate of 6 mts/min he reaches half an hour earlier. How far is his school from his home ?

A) 100 mts B) 96 mts
C) 98 mts D) 120 mts

Answer:   C) 98 mts



Explanation:

Let the distance between home and school is 'x'.
Let actual time to reach be 't'.
Thus, x/4 = t + 4 ---- (1)
and x/6 = t - 30 -----(2)
Solving equation (1) and (2)
=> x = 98 mts.

Q:

K and L starts walking towards each other at 4 pm at speed of 3 km/hr and 4 km/hr respectively. They were initially 17.5 km apart. At what time do they meet ?

A) 6:00 am B) 6:30 pm
C) 5:45 am D) 5:52 pm
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 6:30 pm

Explanation:

Suppose they meet after 'h' hours

Then

3h + 4h = 17.5

7h = 17.5

h = 2.5 hours

So they meet at => 4 + 2.5 = 6:30 pm

Q:

P, Q and R start simultaneously from A to B. P reaches B, turns back and meet Q at a distance of 11 km from B. Q reached B, turns back and meet R at a distance of 9 km from B. If the ratio of the speeds of P and R is 3:2, what is the distance between A and B ?

A) 99 B) 100
C) 89 D) 1
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 99

Explanation:

Let, Distance between A and B = d

Distance travelled by P while it meets Q = d + 11

Distance travelled by Q while it meets P = d – 11

Distance travelled by Q while it meets R = d + 9

Distance travelled by R while it meets Q = d – 9

Here the ratio of speeds of P & Q => SP : SQ = d + 11 : d – 11

The ratio of speeds of Q & R => SQ : SR = d + 9 : d – 9

But given Ratio of speeds of P & R => P : R = 3 : 2

=> 

=>  d = 1, 99

=> d = 99 satisfies.

Therefore, Distance between A and B = 99

Q:

A man can row 8 kmh in still water. If the river is running at 2 kmh, it takes 4 hrs more upstream than to go downstream for the same distance. Then the distance is given by

A) 54 kms B) 32 kms
C) 45 kms D) 60 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 60 kms

Explanation:

Let the distance be d.

=> 2d = 120 

=> d = 60 kms.

Q:

In what time a 360 m. long train moving at the speed of 44 km/hr will cross a 140 m. long bridge ?

A) 36 sec B) 39 sec
C) 41 sec D) 43 sec
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 41 sec

Explanation:

Speed = 44 kmph x 5/18 = 110/9 m/s

We know that, Time = distance/speed

Time = (360 + 140) / (110/9)

= 500 x 9/110 = 41 sec.

Q:

A person can row 8 1/2 km an hour in still water and he finds that it takes him twice as long to row up as to row down the river. The speed of the stream ?

A) 1.78 kmph B) 2.35 kmph
C) 2.83 kmph D) 3.15 kmph
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 2.83 kmph

Explanation:

Given speed of the person = 8 1/2 = 17/2 kmph
Let the speed of the stream = x kmph
speed of upstream = 17/2 - x
speed of downstream = 17/2 + x
But given that,
2(17/2 - x) = 17/2 + x
=> 3x = 17/2
=> x = 2.83 kmph.
