Dear maths lovers, Let your practice begins in minuteness but ends in magnificence.It is impossible to study maths properly by just reading and listening. So, practise, practise & more practise. For that, we are providing here Quant Quiz of 15 questions on Boat and Streams Questions in accordance with the syllabus of SSC CGL.We have also provided Study Notes and quizzes on all the topics.

(b) downstream in 12 hours
(c) upstream in 6 hours
(d) downstream in 4 hours

Q7. A swimmer swims from a point A against a current for 5 minutes and then swims backwards in favour of the current for next 5 minutes and comes to the point B. If AB is 100 meters, the speed of the current (in km per hour) is:
(a) 0.4
(b) 0.2
(c) 1
(d) 0.6

(a) 12
(b) 9
(c) 8
(d) 6

(a) 20
(b) 26
(c) 25
(d) 28
Q11. A boat goes 6 km an hour in still water, but takes thrice as much time in going the same distance against the current. The speed of the current (in km/hour) is:
(a) 4
(b) 5
(c) 3
(d) 2
Q12. In a fixed time, a boy swims double the distance along the current that he swims against the current. If the speed of the current is 3 km/hr, the speed of the boy in still water is
(a) 6 km/hr
(b) 9 km/hr
(c) 10 km/hr
(d) 12 km/hr

Q14. A man can row at 5 km/h, in still water. If the velocity of current is 1 km/h. And it takes him 1 hour to row to the place and come back, how far is the place?
