(a) 27km/hr       (b) 30km/hr     (c) 31km/hr       (d) Cannot be determined
Answer & Explanation


Speed of train = 108km/hr= (108*5/18) m/sec

If the length of the platform be x meters, then

x+280/12 =30

x+ 280 = 360


then 80/10 = 8 m/s




5.(a) In one minute the pipe of 2cm diameter fills 1/61  of the cistern.

In one minute the pipe of 1cm diameter fills 1/61* 1/4   of the cistern

In one minute the pipe of 11/3 cm diameter fills 1/61* 4/9   of the cistern

In one minute (1/61+1/(61*4)+4/(61*9))=1/36   of the cistern is filled.

The whole cistern is filled in 36 minutes

6.(c)Work done by C in one day = 1/7

Work done by B in one day =  1/2*1/7=1/14

Work done by A in one day = 1/2*1/14=1/28

Work done by A, B and C in one day = 7/28=1/4

7.(b)  Let  the  two  numbers  be  x  and  y.

3x  =  1.2( 2y +105)

3x   =  2.4y  +126     ………………..(1)

2x +36  =  0.8(3y)

2x +36  =2.4y            ………………..(2)

x   =    162


9.(c)  Assume Aman got x rupees.

He gave x/2 – 2000 to his son.

And 2/3 ( x/2 + 2000 ) + 1000 to his daughter.

x/2 – 2000 = x/3 + 7000/3

x = 26000


Speed of boat in still water=  1/2(32+28)=60/2=30km/hr
