Q:

A boat takes 2 hours to travel from point A to B in still water. To find out its speed upstream, which of the following information is/are required?

A. Distance between point A and B.

B. Time taken to travel downstream from B to A.

C. Speed of the stream of water.

A) Only A and B B) Only B and C
C) All are required D) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient

Answer:   D) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient



Explanation:

Let distance between A & B = d km
Let speed in still water = x kmph
Let speed of current = y kmph

from the given data,
d/x = 2

From A) we get d
From B) we get d/x+y
From C) we get y

 

So, Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient to give the answer i.e, the speed of upstream.
