Key With Explanations 2-b; Let the normal speed of the train be x and actual time taken be t.
Total distance = x t 3-d; Speed of train relative to man = (x + 8) kmph  Now, this is increased by 20 km/hr Hence, speed is 150 km/hr. At this speed time taken by the train to
cover  900 km = 900/150 = 6 hours

6-c; Let the length of the train be x. ⇒ 3x = x + 250 ⇒ x = 125 m

7-b; The speed of the man is 8-c;  Total distance covered = 10 + 12 = 22 km 9-d; Let the length of train be ‘x’
∴ Total distance while covering platform = x + 240
Total distance while passing man = x
Since the speed of the train remains the same 10-b; Let speed of the car be x km/hr.
Then, time taken to cover 300 km = 300/x Time taken by the train to cross the man = time taken by it to cover 200 m at 20 m / sec
200/20 = 10 sec

12-a; Samit runs 660 m in 88 sec
∴ Samit runs (660 - 60) m in 88/660 × 600 sec
i.e. 80 sec. But Sanjay runs 660 m in 81 sec So, Samit wins by (81 - 80) sec, i.e. 1 sec.

13-c; Let the length of the train be x metres. When a train crosses a platform it covers a distance equal to the sum of lengths of train and platform. Also, the speed of train is same. ⇒ 6x + 720 = 5x + 810
⇒ 6x - 5x = 810 - 720
⇒ x = 90
∴ The length of the train = 90 m.

14-b; Clearly, A beats B by 20 sec.
Distance covered by B in 20 sec ∴ A beats B by 100 m.

15-b; Distance travelled by bus at the rate of 60 km/hr = 300 - 30 × 2 - 40 × 3 = 120 km
Time taken to cover 120 km at the speed of 60 km/hr = 2 hrs
Hence, total time taken = 2 + 3 + 2 = 7 hr ⇒ 8x = 6x + 120
⇒ 2x = 120
⇒ x = 60 m
∴ Distance between A and B = 60 + 60 + 20 = 140 m

18-a;  Speed of train = 108 × 5/18 = 30 m/sec
Distance covered in passing the platform = (90 + 120)= 210 m.
∴Time taken = 210/30 = 7 sec.

19-c; Let the speed of the man when rowing upstream be x kmph, then his speed downstream = 3x kmph.
∴ Rate in still water = 1/2 (3x + x) = 2x kmph
So, 2x = 22 ⇒ x = 11
∴ Rate upstream = 11 km/hr
Rate downstream = 33 km/hr
Hence, the rate of stream
= 1/2 (33 - 11) = 11 km/hr

20-c; Speed downstream = 7 + 2 = 9 kmph
Speed upstream = 7 - 2 = 5 kmph
Let the distance be x. Then, Posted Date : 03-03-2021
