2. A 600m long train is running at 73 Kmph. How much time Train will take to cross an electric pole?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Formula Used: Time = ( Distance / Speed)

As all the option given in sec., so convert the train speed (Kmph) in to mps multiply by 5/18

speed (mps) = 73 * 5/18

Time = 600 / (73 * 5/18)

= (600 * 18 )/(73 * 5) sec

= (10800 / 365)

Time take by Train = 29.58Sec

3. A 120 m long train is running at 72 Kmph. How much time will it take to cross a man standing on the platform?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Formula Used: Time = ( Distance / Speed)

As all the option given in sec., so convert the train speed (Kmph) in to mps multiply by 5/18

speed (mps) = 72 * 5/18 = 20 mps

Time = (120 / 20) sec = 6 sec

Time take by Train = 6 Sec.

4. Two trains 400m and 300m long run at the speeds of 50 kmph and 40kmph respectively in opposite Directions on parallel tracks. The time taken to cross each other?

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

**Explanation:**

Trains are running in opposite Direction:

So need to find Length of two Trains = 300m + 400m = 700m

and Total Speed = 40 Kmph + 50 Kmph (Opposite Direction)

= 90 Kmph

so speed (m/sec) = 90 * 5/18 m/sec = 25 m/sec

Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed

Time = 700/ 25 sec

Time = 28 Sec

5. Two stations A and B are 110 km apart on a straight line. One train starts from A at 7 a.m. and travels towards B at 20 kmph. Another train starts from B at 8 a.m. and travels towards A at a speed of 25 kmph. At what time will they meet?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Let they meet x hours after 7 a.m.

Distance covered by A in x hours = 20x km.

Distance covered by B in (x - 1) hours = 25(x - 1) km.

So Total Distance

=> 20x + 25(x - 1) = 110

=> 45x - 25 = 110 => 45x = 135

=> x = 3.

As They meet x hrs after 7 a.m. so they meet at 10 a.m.

6. Two trains are running at 40 km/hr and 20 km/hr respectively in the same direction. Fast train completely passes a man sitting in the slower train in 5 seconds. What is the length of the fast train?

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

**Explanation:**

As train are running in same direction

so Relative speed = (40 - 20) km/hr = 20 km/hr

= ( 20 x 5/18 ) m/sec = 50/9 m/sec.

Formula Used: Distance = Speed * Time

Now Length of Faster Train = ( 50/9 x 5 ) m = 250/9 m

= 27 7/9 m

7. A train moves past a telegraph post and a bridge 264 m long in 8 seconds and 20 seconds respectively. What is the speed of the train?

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

**Explanation:**

Let the length of the train be x meters and its speed by y m/sec.

Then, x/y = 8 => x = 8y ----------- (1)

As per the question total distance = (x + 264) meters.

(x + 264)/20 = y

Put the value of x from equation 1.

=> 8y + 264 = 20y

=> y = 22.

Therefore Speed = 22 m/sec = ( 22 x 18 /5) km/hr = 79.2 km/hr.

8. An Athlete runs 200 metres race in 24 seconds. His speed is:

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

**Explanation:**

Speed = (200/24) m/sec = 25/3 m/sec

convert m/sec to km/hr

(25/3 * 18/5) km/hr = 30 km/hr.

9. Albert is travelling on his cycle and has calculated to reach point A at 2 P.M. if he travels at 10 kmph, he will reach there at 12 noon if he travels at 15 kmph. At what speed must he travel to reach A at 1 P.M.?

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

**Explanation:**

Let's Assume the distance travelled Albert = x km.

Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed

so (x/10 - x/15) = 2 hrs

=> (3x - 2x)/30 = 2 hrs.

=> (3x - 2x) = 60

x = 60 km.

Time taken to travel 60 km at 10 km/hr = 60/10 hrs = 6 hrs.

Formula Used: Speed = Distance/Time

So, Albert started 6 hours before 2 P.M. i.e @ 8 A.M.

Required speed = 60/5 kmph. = 12 kmph.

10. A person travelled by train for 1 hour at a speed of 50 kmph. He then travelled by a taxi for 30 minutes at a speed of 32 kmph to complete his journey. What is the average speed at which he travelled during the journey?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Total distance travelled in 1 hour

= 50 + (&frac; x 32) km

= 66 km

? Average speed = Total distance/Total time

= 66/(3/2) = 44 kmph.
