A train 150 m long passes a km stone in 15 seconds and another train of the same length travelling in opposite direction in 8 seconds. The speed of the second train is:
  • A.
    60 km/hr
  • C.
    72 km/hr
  • B.
    66 km/hr

Answer : [D]
Explanation :
 
Speed of first train =  
150
15
   m/sec = 10 m/sec.    
 
Let the speed of second train be x m/sec.
 
Relative speed = (10 + x) m/sec.
 
 
 
300
10 + x
 = 8
 
300 = 80 + 8x
 
x =
220
8
=

So, speed of second train =

Explanation :
 
Speed =   72 x
5
18
   m/sec = 20 m/sec.    
 
Total distance covered = (110 + 132) m = 242 m.
 
 
  Required time =  
242
20
   sec = 12.1 sec.

Answer : [C]
Explanation :
 
Speed =   45 x
5
18
   m/sec =  
25
2
   m /sec; Time = 30 sec.    
 
Let the length of bridge be x meters.
 
Then,
130 + x
30
=
25
2
 
2(130 + x) = 750
 
x = 245 m.

A train overtakes two persons walking along a railway rack. The first one walks at 4.5 km/hr. The other one walks at 5.4 km/hr. The train needs 8.4 and 8.5 seconds respectively to overtake them. What is the speed of the train if both the persons are walking in the same direction as the train?
  • A.
    66 km/hr
  • C.
    78 km/hr
  • B.
    72 km/hr
  • D.
    81 km/hr

Answer : [D]
Explanation :
 
4.5 km/hr =   4.5 x
5
18
   m/sec =
5
4
 m/sec = 1.25 m/sec, and    
 
5.4 km/hr =   5.4 x
5
18
   m/sec =
3
2
 m/sec = 1.5 m/sec.    
 
Let the speed of the rain be x m/sec.
 
Then, (x 1.25) x 84 = (x 1.5) x 8.5
 
 
  8.4x - 10.5 = 8.5x - 12.75
 
  0.1x = 2.25
 
  x = 22.5
 
 
  Speed of the train =   22.5 x

   km/hr = 81 km/hr.
