1. A train , 800 meter long is running with a speed of 78 km/hr. It crosses a tunnel in 1 minute. What is the length of the tunnel (in meters)?

1. 440 m

2. 500 m

3. 260 m

4. 430 m

Answer & Explanation

Answer:- 2

Explanation :-

Let length of tunnel is x meter

Distance = (800+x)meter

Time = 1 minute = 60 seconds

Speed = 78 km/hr = (78*5/18) m/s = 65/3 m/s

Distance = Speed*Time

(800 + x) = (65/3)*60

(800 + x) = 20*65

800 + x = 1300

x = 500

Therefore , the length of the tunnel = 500 meters.

2. Two train each 500 m long, are running in opposite directions on parallel tracks. If their speeds are 45 km/hr and 30 km/hr respectively, the time taken by the slower train to pass the driver of the faster one is

1. 50 sec

2. 58 sec

3. 24 sec

4. 22 sec

Answer & Explanation

Answer:- 3

Explanation :-

Relative Speed = 45 + 30 = 75 km/h = 750/36 m/s = 125/6 m/s

Distance = Length of the smaller train

Time = Distance/Speed = 500/(125/6) = 24 s

3. Two trains are running at 40 km/hr and 20 km/hr respectively in the same direction. If the fast train completely passes a man sitting in the slower train in 5 seconds, the length of the fast train is :

1. 19 m

2. 27 7/9 m

3. 13 2/9 m

4. 33 m

Answer & Explanation

Answer:- 2

Explanation :-

As Trains are moving in same direction,

So, Relative Speed = 40-20 = 20 km/h = 20*(5/18) = 50/9 m/sec

Length of Train= Speed * Time

Length of train = (50/9)*20 = 250/9 = 27 7/9 m

4. Two trains are running in opposite directions in the same speed. The length of each train is 120 meter. If they cross each other in 12 seconds, the speed of each train (in km/hr) is

1. 42

2. 36

3. 28

4. 20

Answer & Explanation

Answer:- 2

Explanation :-

Distance covered = 120+120 = 240 m

Time = 12 s

Let the speed of each train = x m/s

Therefore ,

Relative speed = x + x = 2x

Speed = Total distance/Time

2x = 240/12 = 20 m/s

x = 10 m/s

Speed of each train = 10 m/s

= 10 × 36/10 km/hr = 36 km/hr

5. A train 108 m long is moving at a speed of 50 km/hr . It crosses a train 112 m long coming from opposite direction in 6 seconds. What is the speed of the second train?

1. 82 kmph

2. 76 kmph

3. 44 kmph

4. 58 kmph

Answer & Explanation

Answer:- 1

Explanation :-

Speed of 1st Train = 50 km/h

Let the speed of Second train = x km/h

Relative Speed = (x +50) km/h = (x + 50) (5/18) m/s = (5x + 250)/18 m/s

Distance Covered = (108 + 112) = 220 m

Speed = distance / Time

(5x + 250)/18 = 220 / 6

5x + 250 = 660

5x = 410 => x = 82 km/h
