Q:

Train X crosses a stationary train Y in 60 seconds and a pole in 25 seconds with the same speed. The length of the train X is 300 m. What is the length of the stationary train Y ?

A) 360 m B) 420 m
C) 460 m D) 320 m

Answer:   B) 420 m



Explanation:

Let the length of the stationary train Y be LY
Given that length of train X, LX = 300 m
Let the speed of Train X be V.
Since the train X crosses train Y and a pole in 60 seconds and 25 seconds respectively.
=> 300/V = 25 ---> ( 1 )
(300 + LY) / V = 60 ---> ( 2 )
From (1) V = 300/25 = 12 m/sec.
From (2) (300 + LY)/12 = 60
=> 300 + LY = 60 (12) = 720
=> LY = 720 - 300 = 420 m
Length of the stationary train = 420 m
