### Question 1

A bus for Mumbai leaves every forty minutes from a bus stand. An enquiry clerk told a passenger that the bus had already left 10 minutes ago and the next bus will leave at 10.45 a.m. At what time did the enquiry clerk give this information to the passenger?

10.05 a.m.

**B**

9.55 a.m.

**C**

10.35 a.m.

**D**

10.15 a.m.

**Soln.**

**Ans: d**

As buses are left from Mumbai after every forty minutes and the next bus had to go at 10:45 a.m. hence, the previous bus left at 10:05 a.m. Since the enquiry clerk told that it had left just 10 minutes ago. Hence the enquiry clerk gave the information at 10:15 a.am.

Tuesday.

**Soln.**
