1
The ratio of the speeds of the train and the man is 6 : 1. The length of the train is 650m and crosses a pole in 1 minute 5 seconds. In how much time will the man cross the 240m long platform?
» Explain it
D

Speed of the train = 6x m/s, speed of the man = x m/s
 

length of the train = 650m, time taken to cross a pole = 1 minute 5 seconds = 65 seconds

S =  D
T

6x =  650
65

x =  10  =  5
6 3

Speed of the man =  5  m/s
3

Man can cross the 240m platform in  240
5/3


= 144 seconds = 2 minutes 24 seconds

Hence, option D is correct.

2
A train started from point A at a speed of 60 km/hr and after 2 hours another train of same length started from A at a speed of 80 km/hr in the same direction as the first one. After how much time the second train will meet the first train?
» Explain it
C
Let after x hours the second train will meet the first train.

Because distance is same,

S1 t1 = S2 t2

60 (x + 2) = 80 × x

60x + 120 = 80x

80x – 60x = 120

20x = 120

x = 6 hours 

Hence, option C is correct.
3
A pilot flies an aircraft at a certain speed for a distance of 800 km. He could have saved 40 min by increasing the average speed of the plane by 40 km/h. Find the average speed of the aircraft.
» Explain it
A
Let the average speed be  a km/hr

Time taken by aircraft (t) =  800
a

As per the condition  t –  40  =  800
60 a + 40

⇒  800  –  800  =  2
a a + 40 3

⇒  32000  =  2
a(a + 40) 3

⇒ a( a + 40 ) = 48000

⇒ a = 200Km/hr

Hence option A is correct.
4
A train 125 m long passes a person, running at 8 kmph in the same direction in which the train is going in 25 seconds. The speed of the train is:
» Explain it
D
Speed of the train relative to Person

 =  ( 125 ) m/sec = 5 m/sec
25

⇒  ( 5 ×  18 ) km/hr = 18 km/hr.
5

Let the speed of the train be x kmph. then, relative speed = (x – 8) kmph

So,    (x – 8) = 18 ⇒ x = 26 kmph

Hence, option (D) is correct.


5
Two trains of lengths 160 m and 200 m travel at the speeds of 48 m/s and 52 m/s respectively in opposite direction to each other. What is the total time taken by them to cross each other?
» Explain it
A
Relative speed = 48 + 52 = 100 m/s

Total distance covered by both the trains = 160 + 200 = 360 m

Speed =  Distance
Time

   100 =  360
Time


∴   Time = 3.6 seconds

Hence, option A is correct.
