Answer & Explanation

1. (4) 
the average speed maintained by the train between different stations E and F 106 km in 5/4 h   =((106×4)  )/5 = 84.8 kmph
Similarly, average speed between F and G = 176 km
In 2h = 88 km/h
Between G and H = (110*4)/5  = 88 km/h


Over all average speed of the entire trip : 860 km in 11 hr 25 min
i.e. (685/137) h   =(860*12)/137   = 75.3 km/h
Average speed maintained by the train between station
A and B 140 km in 12/3h =  (140*3)/5 = 84 km/h
B and C 91 km in  4/3 h=91*(3/4) km/h=68.25 km/h
C and D 149 km in  103/60=(149*60)103  =86.8 km/h
D and E 88 km in 4/3 h=(88*3)/4=66 km/h
E and F = 84.8 km, FG = 88km/h, GH = 88km/h
Hence, for two stations it runs below the overall average speed


The train stops at station B for 3 min more
The train stops at station C for 36 sec more
The train stops at station D for 1.5 min more
The train stops at station E for 3 min more
The train stops at station F for 4.5 min more
In all the trains stops 15 min and 36 s more
The train will reach city H after departing from city A at 16h, 40 min, 36 sec i.e., 16h , 41 min approx
Let the distance between city H and city M be x km.
Time taken by the trains from H and A (return)
860/90 = 86/9h
Given, the trains reaches  city A (return) at 2.25 am
i.e, at 26.25(hours)
The train reaches at H (return)
At   =    (26+25/60)-86/9= (16+31/36)h
Time taken from H to M and back
(607/36) – (192/12)= 4/3h
Since the train runs from G to H 88km/h, therefore the train runs 88km/h from city H to city M also. Also speed between city M and city H = 90kmph
x = 59 km


Number of L types products sold by Store F=48
by Store E=40
Required percentage=  48/40 *100=120


Reqd. ratio = (61+54) : (54+48)


Average price = Rs 15750


Reqd. difference = Rs(60 *75-44 *15) *10^3  =Rs(4500-660)   =Rs 38.4 lakhs


Reqd. total amount earned by selling both products M and O by Store C = Rs(57 *5.6+48* 50) *10^3
=Rs(319.2+2400) *10^3 =Rs 27.192 Lakhs
