D
Ratio of speeds = 5:6
Ratio of time =6:5
Suppose P takes 6x hrs and Q takes 5x hrs to reach the target. Then,
6x – 5x = 45/60
X=3/4
Time taken by P = 6x hrs
=(6*3/4)hrs
=4.5 hrs
i.e., the time taken by P to reach the target is 4hrs 30mins

A girl covered a definite distance at same speed. Had she moved 6 km/hr faster, she would have taken 30 mins less. If she had moved 4 km/hr slower, she would have taken 30 mins more. The distance (in km) is. a) 50 b) 40 c) 70 d) 60

Last answer:
D Let distance = x km Rate = y km/hr x/y - x / (y+6) = 30/60 (x(y+6)-xy) / y(y+6) = ½ (xy +6x - xy) / y(y+6) = ½ 12x = y(y+6) ------------>1 And x/ (y-4) - x/y = 30/60 (Xy - x(y-4 ... = (y+6) / (y-4) 3y - 12 = 2y +12 Y = 24km Put y value in 1 we get 12x = 24 (24+6) 12x = 24 *30 X=60km

The average speed of a bus in the upward journey is 50% more than that in the return journey. The bus halts for 2 hrs on reaching the destination. The total time taken for the complete to and from trip is 34 hrs covering a distance of 1600 km. the speed of the bus in the upward journey is. a) 63.24 b) 65.67 c) 63.49 d) 62.49

Last answer:
D Let the speed in return journey be x km/hr Then speed in upward journey = 150 /100 x = (3/2 x)km/hr Average speed = (2*3x/2*x) / (3x/2 +x) =3x2 / (5x/2) =6x2 / 5x =6x/5 km/hr Therefore (1600 ... 192x = 8000 X = 41.66 Speed in upward journey = (3/2 x ) km/hr =(3/2*41.66) =62.49 km/hr

Last answer:
B Part filled by (P+Q) in 1 min = 1/120 + 1/80 =2+3/240 = 5/240 = 1/48 Suppose the cistern is filled in x mins then, x/2 (1/48 + 1/80) = 1 x/2(5+3/240)=1 8x/480 = 1 x=480/8 x= 60 mins or 1 hr

Last answer:
D Time taken = 2 hr 15 mins = 2 ¼ hrs Time = 9/4 hrs Let the required distance be x km Then x/20 + x/1 = 9/4 (X+20x) / 20 = 9/4 21x / 20 = 9/4 84x = 180 X= 2.14 km Therefore the required diatance is 2.14 km

Last answer:
A Let speed of the car be x kmph The speed of the train = 125x/100 =5x/4 km/hr Therefore 37.5 / x – 37.5 /(5x/4) = 6.25 /60 37.5 / x – (37.5*4)/5x = 6.25 / 60 37.5 / x – 150 / 5x = 6.25 / 60 37.5 / x – 30/x = 6.25 / 60 7.5 / x = 6.25 / 60 6.25x = 7.5*60 X=72 km/hr

A boys rows to a certain place and comes back, but by mistake he covers 2/3rd more distance while coming back. The total time for this journey is 20 hours. The ratio of speed of boat to that of stream is 2 : 1. If the difference between upstream and downstream speed is 24km/hr, then how much time will the man take to reach to starting point from his present position? A) 2hr 13mints B)1hr 30 mins C) 2hr 30mins D)1hr 40 mins

Last answer:
ANSWER : A Explanation: let speed of boat and stream be 2x and x respectively So downstream speed = 2x+x = 3x, and upstream speed = 2x-x = x Let total distance between points is d km So he covered d ... with speed 3x = 48 km/hr(downstream) So time is 80/36 * 60 = 133.33 minutes = 2hr 13mins

Last answer:
D Part filled in 5 min = 5(1/12 +1/15) = 5*9/60 = ¾ Part emptied in 1 min when all the pumps are opened, = 1/6 – (1/12 + 1/15) = 1/6 – 3/20 = 1/60 Now 1/60 is part emptied in 1 min Therefore ¾ part will be emptied in 60 * ¾ = 45 mins

Last answer:
A Let the distance travelled be x km x/30 – x/45 = 2 (3x – 2x) / 90 = 2 x/90 = 2 x = 180km Time taken to travel 180 km at 30 km/hr = 180 / 30 = 6 hrs So ganesh started 6 hrs before 8 pm That is 2 pm Required speed = distance / time =(180/5) =36 km/hr

A van travels from namakkal to Madurai at a constant speed. If its speed were increased by 40km/hr it would have taken 1 hr lesser to cover the distance. It would have taken further 45 mins lesser if the speed was further increased by 40km/hr. what is distance between the 2 cities. a) 1680 b) B1660 c) 1670 d) 1675

Last answer:
A Let distance = x km Usual rate = y km/hr Then x/y - x/(y+40) =1 X(y+40) / y(y+40) = 1 Xy+40x - xy = y(y+40) 40x = y(y+40) ---------->1 x/y - x/y+80 = 7/4 x(y+80) - xy / y(y+ ... (y+80) / y(y+40) 8(y+40) = 7y + 560 8y +320 = 7y+560 Y=240 Substitute y value in 1 40x = 240*280 X=1680 km

Karthiga jogs a speed of 18 km/hr at a distance of 27 km. at what speed would she need to jog during the next 4.5 hrs to have an average of 27km/hr for the entire jogging session. a) 40km/hr b) 30 km/hr c) 20 km/hr d) 35 km/hr
Karthiga jogs a speed of 18 km/hr at a distance of 27 km. at what speed would she need to jog during the next 4.5 hrs to have an average of 27km/hr for the entire jogging session. a) 40km/hr b) 30 km/hr c) 20 km/hr d) 35 km/hr
Last answer:
B Let the speed of jagging be x km/hr Total time taken = (27/18 hrs + 4.5 hrs) =(1.5 hrs + 4.5 hrs) =6 hrs Total distance covered = (27+4.5 x) km Therefore (27 +4.5x) / 6= 27 27+4.5x = 162 4.5x = 135 X=135/4.5 =30 So jagging speed is 30 km/hr

Two pipe P & Q fill a tab in 5 hrs and 20 hrs respectively. If both the pipes are open then due to the leakage, it took 30mins more to fill the tab. If the tab is full, how long will it take for the leakage alone to empty the tank? A) 28 B) 24 C) 36 D) 12

Last answer:
C Part filled by(P+Q) in 1 hr = 1/5 + 1/20 = ¼ So P & Q together can fill the tank in 4 hrs. Work done by the leak in 1 hr = 1 / 4 - 2/9 Leak will empty the tank in 36 hrs.

Last answer:
D Time taken by 1 pump to fill tha half tank = 6 hrs Part filled by the 4 pumps in 1 hr = 4 * 1/12 =1/12 =>1/3 Remaining part = (1 – 1/2)= 1/2 Therefore 1/3 :1/2 :: 1:x X=1.5 hrs So total time takem = 6hrs + 1.5 hrs = 7.5 hrs.

Last answer:
A At the time of meeting, Let the distance travelled by the second bus be xkm Then distance covered by the 1st bus is (x+300)km x/120= (x+300) /150 150x = 120(x+300) 150x = 120x +36000 30x = ... X=36000/30 X=1200 So the distance covered between A & B =(x+x+300) =(1200+1200+300) =2700km.

Last answer:
B Time required = (5 hrs – 5/3 hrs) =(5 hrs – 100 mints) = (5 hrs – 1hr 40 mints) = 3 hrs 20 mints = 3 1/3 hrs Required speed = (100*3/10) km/hr =30 km/hr Original speed = (100/5)km/hr = 20 km/hr Difference speed = required speed – original speed =(30-20) =10km/hr

Last answer:
ANSWER : D Explanation: Let the speed of upstream be x' km/hr Then speed in downstream = 3x km/hr[thrice as much as time to cover up than as to cover down the same distance in running water] Speed in ... Speed in downstream = 30 km/hr Hence speed of the current = (30 -10)/2 = 10 km/hr.

In a 2700 m race around a round track of length 300m, abi and kabi meet at the end of the 3rd minute, for the first time after the start of the race. All the runners maintain uniform speed throughout the race. If abi runs at twice the speed of the kabi. Find the time taken by abi to finish the race. a) 27 mints b) 32 mints c) 5 mints d) 23 mints

Last answer:
A As, abi is twice as fast as the kabi, abi would have completed two rounds by the time kabi completes one round. And that is their second meeting. Their first meeting takes place after the abi ... 300m ⇒He takes 2700/300 *3 =27 mints Hence he takes 27 minutes to finish the race.

Last answer:
B Work done by P,Q & R in 8 days = 1/20 * 8 =2/5 Remaining work = (1 - 2/5) = 3/5 Now 3/5 work is done by Q & R in 20 days Whole work will be done by Q & R in(20*5/3) =100/3 days (P+Q+R ... (Q+R)'s 1 day work =1/20 - 3/100 =5-3/100 =2/100 =1/50 P alone could complete the work in 50 days..

A boat takes 38 hrs for travelling downstream from point p to point q and coming back to a point r midway between p and q. If the velocity of the stream is 8 km/hr and the speed of the boat in still water is 28 km/hr. What is the distance between p and q? A) 720 B) 640 C) 510 D) 450

Last answer:
ANSWER: A Explanation: Speed downstream = (28 + 8)km/hr = 36 km/hr Speed upstream = (28 – 8)km/hr = 20 km/hr Let the distance between p and q be ‘x’km Then, x/36 + (x/2)/20 = 38 x/36 +x/40 = 38 19x = 13680 X = 720 km Therefore the distance between p and q is 720km

Last answer:
A Let r = running time of the train s= stoppage time of the train D= total distance travelled by train We have: D/r= 120 and ..(1) D/(r+s) =80 ..(2) Diviving (1)&(2), D/r *(r+s)/D = ... , D=480 kms 480/r= 120 r=4 put r value in (3),we get s/4 =1/2 S = 2 hours

Last answer:
C When speed of gowtham = 30 km/hr =d/t and, When speed of the gowtham = 45 km/hr =d/(t−2) Equating the value of d: 30t =45(t-2) 30t=45t-90 15t=90 t=6 hours Finally desired speed =d/(t-1) =30t/(t-1) =30*6/(6-1) =180/5 =36 km/hr

A 240m train crosses a standing object in 6 seconds. Find the time taken by the train to cross a long pole of length 162.5 m. A) 25 B) 45 C) 10 D) 15
Last answer:
ANSWER:C Explanation: Length of the train = 240 m Time taken to cross an object = 6 seconds Speed of the train = Length of the train / Time taken to cross an object = 240/6 m/s = 40 m/s Length of ... = (240 + 162.5)/40 = 402.5/40 = 10.06 seconds Hence the answer is 10 seconds.
