21. Three runners A, B and C run a race, with runner A finishing 12 meters ahead of runner B and 18 meters ahead of

runner C, while runner B finishes 8 meters ahead of runner C. Each runner travels the entire distance at a constant

speed. What was the length of the race?

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

Lets assume distance of race = x mtrs.

Then when A finishes x m , B has run (x- 12)mtrs and C has run (x-18) mtrs.

=> at this point B is 6 m ahead of C. Now to finish race b needs to run another 12 m,

=> he runs another 12 m. when B finishes race he is 8 m ahead of C.

so last 12 m B has run, C has run 10 m.as speeds are constant,

=> x-12/ x-18 = 12/10 => x = 48 mtrs.
