    C) 3 : 1
    D) 3 : 5
    E) None of these

    Distance of first part of his journey = x
    Distance of first part of his journey = y
    x/30 + y/60 = (x + y)/40
    6x + 2y = 3x + 3y
    x/y = 3:1

    Total Journey in Km = 19.8 * 10 = 198 km

    A) 36 minutes
    B) 24 minutes
    C) 42 minutes
    D) 54 minutes
    E) None of these

    Option D

    3/4 of speed = 4/3 of original time
    4/3 of original time = original time + 18 minutes;
    1/3rd of original time = 18 minutes;
    Thus, original time = 18*3 = 54 minutes.
  6. Mr. Ravi completes a certain journey by a car. If he covered 40% of the distance at the speed of 20kmph, 50% of the distance at 25 kmph and the remaining of the distance at 10 kmph, then what will be the speed?

    B) 20 kmph
    C) 18 kmph
    D) 14 kmph
    E) None of these
    View Answer

    Assume Total distance = 100 km.
    So speed = 100/[(40/20)+(50/25)+(10/10];
    speed = 100/[(2)+(2)+(1)];
    = 100/[5]
    = 20 kmph.

    A) 132 km
    B) 145 km
    C) 128 km
    D) 120 km
    E) None of these
    View Answer
    Option D

    Total distance = 18*10 = 180
    Journey traveled by auto = x hours
    30 * x + (10-x )10 = 180
    30x + 100 – 10x = 180
    20x = 80
    x = 4 hours
    Distance traveled by auto = 4 * 30 = 120 km

    B) 1.2 kmph
    C) 2.2 kmph
    D) 3.5 kmph
    E) None of these

  9. Two Rabbits started running towards each other, one from A to B and another from B to A. They cross each other after 1.2 hours and the first Rabbit reaches B, 1 hour before the second rabbit reaches A. If the distance between A and B is 60 km, what is the speed of the slower rabbit?
    A) 10 kmph
    B) 15 kmph
    C) 25 kmph
    D) 18 kmph
    E) 20 kmph
    View Answer
    Option E

    Let speed of faster rabbit = x
    & speed of slower rabbit = y
    x + y = 60/1.2
    x + y = 50 —- (A)
    60/y – 60/x = 1 —- (B)
    Solve equations, we get y = 150 and 20 bt y cannot be 120 as x+y = 50. So y = 20 kmph and x = 30 kmph
  10. Walking at 3/2 of his normal speed Sehwag takes 40 minutes less than the usual time. What is the new time taken by Sehwag?
    A) 6 hours
    B) 5 hours
    C) 4 hours
    D) 8 hours
    E) 2 hours
    View Answer
    Option E

    3/2 of speed = 2/3 of original time
    2/3 of original time = original time – 40 minutes;
    1/3rd of original time = 40 minutes;
    Thus, original time = 40*3 = 120 minutes = 2 hours
