Q:

Jagan went to another town covering 240 km by car moving at 60 kmph. Then he covered 400km by train moving at 100 kmph and then rest 200 km he covered by a bus moving at 50 kmph. The average speed during the whole journey was ?

A) 36 kmph B) 35 kmph
C) 72 kmph D) 70 kmph

Answer:   D) 70 kmph



Explanation:

By car 240 km at 60 kmph
Time taken = 240/60 = 4 hr.

By train 240 km at 60 kmph
Time taken = 400/100 = 4 hr.

By bus 240 km at 60 kmph
Time taken = 200/50 = 4 hr.

So total time = 4 + 4 + 4 = 12 hr.
and total speed = 240+400+200 = 840 km
Average speed of the whole journey = 840/12 = 70 kmph.

Q:

Kamal consistently runs 240 meters a day and on Saturday he runs for 400 meters. How many kilometers will he have to run in four weeks ?

A) 5.75 kms B) 7.36 kms
C) 8.2 kms D) 6.98 kms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 7.36 kms

Explanation:

Total running distance in four weeks = (24 x 240) + (4 x 400)

= 5760 + 1600

= 7360 meters

= 7360/1000

=> 7.36 kms

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.
