Q13. A train 100m long is running at the speed of 30 km/hr. The time (in second) in which it passes a man standing near the railway line is:
(a) 10
(b) 11
(c) 12
(d) 15
S13. Ans.(c)
Sol. Speed = 30 km/hr = 30 × 5/18 m/sec.
= 25/3 m/sec
So, time = D/S=100/(25/3) = 12 sec.
Q14. A train crosses a pole in 15 seconds and a platform 100 metres long in 25 seconds. Length  of train (in metres) is
(a) 50
(b) 100
(c) 150
(d) 200
S14. Ans.(c)
Sol. We can inferred that train crosses only platform not its length in 25 – 15 = 10 second
⇒ Speed of the train = (100 metres)/(10 sec) = 10 m/s
∵ Train crosses the pole in 15 seconds and we know when train crosses a pole/tree/man this case it covers the equal distance of its length.
Therefore,
Length of train = 15 × 10
= 150 metres.
Q15. Two trains travel in the same direction at the speed of 56 km/hr and 29 km/hr. respectively. The faster train passes a man in the slower train in 10 seconds. The length of the faster train (in metres) is
(a) 100
(b) 80
(c) 75
(d) 120
S15. Ans.(c)
Sol. When a faster train crosses the man who sits in the other train, on that time faster train covers the distance equal to its length but the relative speed (opposite/same direction) is considered in respect of man.
Relative speed of the trains = (56 – 29) km/h = 27 km/h
Length of faster train = Distance covered by faster train in 10 second with Relative speed of 27 km/h
= 27 km/h × 10 sec.
= 27 × 5/18 × 10 m.
= 75 metres
