Answer & Explanation

Let the normal speed be ‘s’ km/hr
Then new speed =(s+5) km/hr
300/s-2 =300/(s+5)
On solving this equation
s = 25 km/hr
2. (B)
3. (A)
4. (A)
5. (B)
6. (C)
Let the numbers be a and b.
Then, a + b = 55 and ab = 5 x 120 = 600.
The required sum = (1/a)+(1/b) = (a+b)/ab = 55/600 = 11/120
L.C.M. of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 is 120.
So, the bells will toll together after every 120 seconds(2 minutes).
In 30 minutes,they will together (30/2)+1=16 times
