(b) 100 m
(c) 120 m
(d) 180 m

Q9. A train running at certain speed crosses a stationary engine in 20 seconds. To find out the speed of the train, which of the following information is necessary? 
(a) Only the length of the train
(b) Only the length of the engine
(c) Either the length of the train or the length of the engine
(d) Both the length of the train and the length of the engine

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. Since the sum of the length of the train and the engine is
needed, so both the lengths must be known.

(b) 10 a.m.
(c) 11 a.m.
(d) 10.30 a.m.

Q12. Two trains are running in opposite directions towards each other with speeds of 54 kmph and 48 kmph respectively. If the length of one of the train is 250 m and they cross each other in 18 seconds, the length of the other trains is-
