Answer & Explanation


1.(e); Distance covered by car=8 X 10=800 km

Speed=800/8=100 kmph

Required Speed=100-80=20 kmph


2.(c); Distance=300

Required speed=(4/5) X 5 = 4 hr

So, Required Speed=500/4 = 75 kmph.


3.(b); C covered the journey in 42 min.

B covered the journey in 14 min.

So, A covered the same journey in 7 min.


4.(e); Required time=(4/5) X 25=20 hr

Required Speed= 300/20 = 15 kmph


5.(a); Required time=180/(60+20) = 2 hr

So, meeting point of two train=60 X 2=120 km




7.(c); Let distance be x

x/(3+1) + x/(3-1) = 45/60

(x+2x)/4 = 3/4

x=1 km.


8.(b);Let distance be x and speed of stream be y.


2x/(6+y) = x/(6-y)



y=2 kmph


9.(b); Required distance= 2[1+ 2/3 + (2/3)^2+………………]

=2 X [1/(1- 2/3)]=2 X 3=6
