381. Number of positive integers valued pairs (x, y) satisfying 4x – 17y = 1, x is <=1000 is :

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

**Explanation:**

4x - 17y = 1 and x £ 1000 Þ x = (1 + 17y) /4 Þ (1 + 17y)/4 £ 1000

Þ 1 + 17y £ 4000 Þ 17y £ 3999 Þ y £ 3999/17 Þ y £ 235.

Considering multiples of 4 (for x), we get 235/4 = 58.75. Hence 58 such pairs can exist.

385. Two stations Ahmedabad and Baroda are 100 kms apart. Navjeevan Express travelling at 50 kmph leaves Ahmedabad at 6.30 AM and Howrah-Ahmedabad Express travelling at 40 kmph leaves Baroda at 7 AM. At 7.30 AM Mr. Shah, the traffic controller, discovers that both the trains are travelling on the same line. How much time is available to avert an accident?

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

**Explanation:**

Let A, B and C be the points for the first train to start, second train to start and the trains to meet respectively. Distance travelled by first till 7:30 = 50 * 1 = 50.

Distance travelled by second till 7:30 = 40 * 0.5 = 20.

Remaining distance = 100 - 50 - 20 = 30.

Time available = [30/(50 + 40)] hrs. = 1/3 hrs. = 20 min.
