Q:

A 200 m long train passes a motorcycler, running in the same direction at 12 km/hr, in 15 second and a jeep travelling in the same direction in 20 s. At what speed is the car travelling (length of both the motorcycler and jeep is negligible)?

A) 36 kmph B) 32 kmph
C) 29 kmph D) 24 kmph

Answer:   D) 24 kmph



Explanation:

Let the speed of the train be 'S' kmph

From the given data,

Distance = Length of train = D = 200 mts = 200 x 18/5 kms

Time = 10 sec

given speed of the motorcycler = 12 kmph

Relative speed as they are moving in the same direction = (S - 12) kmph

(S- 12) = 200 x 18515S - 12 = 48S = 60 kmph 

Hence, the speed of the train = S = 60 kmph

Now,

Let the speed of the jeep be 'x' kmph

60 - x = 200 x 1852060 - x = 36x = 60 - 36x = 24 kmph

 

Therefore, the speed of the jeep = x = 24 kmph.
