Solutions

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Since both Manoj and Ravi are running for the same time, T is constant. Hence, the ratio of the distance covered by them will be the same as the ratio of their speed.
So, AX/BX = Speed of Manoj /Speed of Ravi = 60/40 = 3: 2
S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Time taken by A to cover 70 m = Time taken by B to cover 100 m
Since the distance is constant, the ratio of speed of A and B = 10: 7

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. Since they are running in the opposite direction, relative speed = 10 + 20 = 30 m/s
So, time taken = distance/relative speed = 1000/30 = 33.33 seconds
S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. The train takes 10 s to cross its own length and 20 s to cross its own length and length of the platform. So, it is inferred that the train takes 10 s to cross the platform and 10 s to cross its own length.
Since the time taken to cross the platform = time taken to cross its own length
So, length of the platform = length of the train = 200 m
S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Speed of train =(36 Ã— 5/18) = 10 m/s
Distance covered = 10 Ã— 25 = 250 m
So, length of train = 250 m
