Answer & Explanation
  1. (b); Due to stoppages, it cover 9 km less.

Time taken to cover 9 km=[(9/54)X60)min=10 min

  1. (c); To be 0.5 km apart, they take 1 hour

To be 8.5 km apart, they would take=[(1/0.5)X8.5]hrs=17 hrs.

  1. (b); To be (18+20) km apart, they take 1 hour

To be 47.5 km apart, they would take=[(1/38)X47.5]hrs=1(1/4) hrs.

  1. (d); Let distance=x km & usual rate=y km/hr.

(x/y)-x/(y+3)=40/60

2y(y+3)=9x…………….(i)

And, x/(y-2)-x/y=40/60

y(y-2)=3x……….(ii)

On dividing (i) by (ii), we get: (2(y+3))/(y-2)=3

y=12

Putting y=12 in (i), we get : x=40

  1. (c); Let the correct time to complete the journey be x min.

Then, distance travelled in (x+11) min at 40 kmph

=distance covered in (x+5) min. at 50 kmph.

Therefore, (x+11)X(40/60)=(x+5)X(50/60)

10x=190

x=19 min. 

  1. (c); Let the length of journey be x km. Then,

(x/45)-(x/60)=11/2

X=990 km.

  1. (b); With a speed of 5/6 th of the usual speed, the time taken is 6/5th of the usual time.

 

Therefore, (6/5 of usual time) – (usual time)=10 min.

Therefore, 1/5 of usual time=10 min. So, usual time=50 min.

  1. (c); Let original speed=x kmph.

(840/x)-(840/(x+10))=2

840(x+10)-840x=2x(x+10)

x^2+10x-4200=0

(x+70)(x-60)=0

x=60

Therefore, Original speed=60 kmph.

  1. (c); Suppose they meet x hrs after 8 p.m. Then,

Sum of distance covered by them in x hrs=240  km.

Therefore, 40x+50x=240

x=(240/90) hrs=2 hrs 40 min.

So, they will meet at 10.40 p.m. 

10 . (d); Let distance between Meerut & Delhi be x km and let the train meet y hours after 7 a.m.

Clearly, M covers x km in 4 hrs. & N covers x km in 3(1/2) hr.

Therefore, Speed of M=(x/4)kmph & Speed of N=(2x/7) kmph.

[Distance covered by M in (y+2) hrs] [Distance covered by N in y hr]=x 

(x(y+2))/4+(2xy/7)=x

((y+2)/4)+(2y/7)=1

y=(14/15) hrs=((14/15)X60) min=56 min.

So, the trains meet at 7.56 a.m.
