2. A man covers a certain distance in t hours. If he met with an accident after 40 km and then he covers remaining distance at 4/5th of his normal speed, then he reaches 30 minutes late. But if he met with an accident after further 10 km, then he reaches 24 minutes late. Find the total distance

B) 90 km
C) 94 km
D) 84 km
E) 112 km
Option B

:
In 6 minutes he covers 10 km

3. A can complete a work in 30 days, B in 35 days. If they work on alternate days starting with A first, then find in how many days they complete the whole work.
A) 32 2/7 days
B) 28 3/7 days
C) 35 2/3 days
D) 25 1/5 days
E) None of these
Option A
Solution
:
LCM of 30 and 35 is 210
A = 30, so 210/30 = 7
A = 35, so 210/35 = 6
2 days work = 7+6 = 13
Multiply by 16  both sides
so 32 days work = 208
Now A’s turn, he completes remaining 2 work in 2/7 work
So total 32 2/7 days

So 1/6 * Q = 7
So total = 42 kg
