55. Car A leaves city C at 5pm and is driven at a speed of 40 kmph. Two hours later another car leaves city C and is driven in same direction as car A. In how much time car B be 9 km ahead of car A if the speed of car B is 60 kmph.

**Answer:**** Option D **

**Explanation:**

Given, car A speed = 40 kmph,

car B speed 60 kmph

Relative speed=(60-40)=20 kmph(as both are in same direction)

when car B started A has already covered distance = 40*2=80m

Time required for both car to be at same position = 80/20 = 4 hr

Additional distance = 9 km

Time required to cover this distance = (9/20)*60=27 min

Therefore, required time = 4hrs 27 min

58. There are two bottles A and B, each filled with milk and water in the ratio 5:3 and 1:2 respectively. A new mixture is formed by mixing the contents of A and B in the ratio 4:3.What is the ratio of composition of milk and water in the new mixture?

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

Bottle A mixture: milk = 5/8 & water=3/8

Bottle B mixture: milk = 1/3 & water=2/3

Given New mixture (Bottle A & B) ratio = 4:3

Now milk ratio = (5/8*4/7) + (1/3*3/7) = 1/2

and water = (3/8*4/7) + (2/3*3/7) = 1/2

So, New mixture ration milk : water = 1 : 1
