10) Towns A and B are 225 km apart. Two cars P and Q travel towards each other from towns A and B respectively and meet after 3 hours. If the speed of P be 1/2 of its original speed and Q be 2/3 of its original speed, they would have met after 5 hours. Find the speed of the faster car.

A) 50 km/hr

B) 40 km/hr

C) 45 km/hr

D) 30 km/hr

E) 60 km/hr


1) Answer: A

Here we have two speeds. We get 2 equations as.
250/1hr = C+B—1 (Travelling in opposite direction, speed must be added ie C+B)
250/5hr = C-B—2 (Travelling in same direction, speed to be subtracted. ie C-B)
solving 2 eqn C=150km/hr.

2) Answer: D
Car A travels 3hrs. 3*30=90km
Difference between speeds 50-30=20km/hr
Distance ahead 12km . 90+12=102km
T=D/S ===>102/20=5 hrs 6 mins

3) Answer: A
Speed ratio 40:37 1/2==>40: 75/2==>80:75 ie 16:15
ratio diff  between speed is 1[16-15] 1 ===> 200 (more distance)
[16+15]31 ===>?

4) Answer: B

He takes 40 minutes less to cycle than to walk. Thus, on the whole he takes 40 more.

Required time = 3 hours 20 minutes

5) Answer: B

D = S * T

With 1st condition when speed decreases eq is–:  4S – T = 40 ——1)

With 2nd condition when speed increased eq is –:  (– 2S) + T = 10 ——–2)

Solving the a above two eq we get S = 25 kmph and T = 60 h

hence, distance = 25 * 60 = 1500 km

6) Answer: C

The speeds of two persons is 108 kmph and 75 kmph.

The first person covers (108*10)=1080 km in 10 hours and thus he makes (1080/90)=12 rounds.

Thus, he will pass over another person 12 times in any one of the direction.

7) Answer: A

Distance=> P*49 = Q*50 = R*51

P= Distance/49, Q= Distance/50, R= Distance/51

Time => P*10 = Q*9 = R*8

P = Time/10, Q = Time/9, R= Time/8

P’s speed = (Distance/49)/(Time/10) = 10/49

Same like that,

The ratio of speeds of P, Q, R = (10/49) : (9/50) : (8/51)

Hence, P is the fastest.

8) Answer: C

Speed of 2nd truck = [(400 + 200)/20] * [18/5] kmph  = 108 kmph

9) Answer: C

With 80 km/hr, distance travelled in 1 and half hours (9:30AM – 8AM) is 3/2 * 80 = 120 Km
Now second train also starts, and at this time distance between both trains is (545-120) = 425 km
Relative speed = 80+90 = 170 km/hr (when travelling in opposite direction, add speed)
So time when they meet = 425/170 = 2.5 hrs
So after 9:30 AM they meet after 2.5 hrs, so 12 PM

10) Answer: C
Let speeds be x km/hr and y km/hr
So 225/(x+y) = 3
And 225/(x/2 + 2y/3) = 5
Solve, x = 30, y = 45
