### Question 1

A traveler travelled partly by camel @4 km/h and partly by car @14 km/h. He travelled a total distance 260 km in 20 hours. How much distance did he cover with the camel?

### Question 2

A train passes two persons walking in the same direction as the train. The time it takes to move past the man running at 37km/h is 17sec, whereas the time it takes to cross the other man running at 44km/h is 18sec. What is the speed of the train?

**A**

163km/h.

**B**

164km/h.

**C**

162km/h.

**D**

165km/h.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the speed of the train be v km/h. Length of the train calculated with the data for the first man = $(v - 37) × 17$. It should equal the length obtained from the data for the second man. So $(v - 37) × 17$ = $(v - 44) × 18$. Please note that we have not converted seconds to hours because that factor will ultimately cancel away. Solving for v we get 163km/h.

### Question 3

A traveler travelled partly by camel @3 km/h and partly by car @13 km/h. He travelled a total distance 200 km in 20 hours. How much distance did he cover with the camel?

### Question 4

A city bus has an average speed of 25 km/h if it doesn't stop anywhere. But if it stops in-between the average speed drops to 17 km/h. How many minutes does it stop in 1 hour?

### Question 5

Two cars A and B begin to move towards each other and meet midway after travelling equal distance. What is the initial distance between them if the speeds of A and B are 4 km/h and 8 km/h, and B started 1 hour late?
