(b) 36.5
(c) 40/9
(d) 45
(e) none of these

10. Pushpak express leave Lucknow at 6 am and two hours later another train Bhopal express leaves Lucknow. Both trains arrive Bhopal at 4 pm on the same day. If the difference between their speeds be 10 km/h, what is the average speeds of both the trains over entire route :
(a) 40 km/h
(b) 44(4/9) km/h
(c) 42(3/5) km/h
(d) 43 km/h
(e) none of these

1.(D)
Let speed of faster horse = x
& speed of slower horse = y
x + y = 50/1
x + y = 50 ---- (I)
50/y – 50/x = 5/6 ---- (II)
With the help of option
x = 30 kmph
y = 20 kmph

2.(C)
Total distance = 17*10=170
Let Journey travelled by auto in x hr
25 * x + (10-x ) 5 = 170
25 x + 50 – 5x = 170
x = 6
Required Ans = 6 * 25 = 150 km

3.(B)
S1/S2 = (9/16)^1/2
S1/S2 = ¾
3 = 120
4 = 160

4.(C)
Distance covered in 3 minute = 3*(1000/60) = 50
Now he has to cover (500+50) meters in (30-3) minutes
Required speed = (550/1000)/(27/60) = 11/9 km/h

5.(B)
Let Speed of train x = a kmph
& Speed of train y = b kmph
a + b = 300/3 = 100 kmph
The faster trains takes be atleast = (3+2) hr = 5 hr
i.e speed of slower train = 40 kmph
i.e time = 300/40 = 7.5 hr

6.(B)
Let the time token in first third part of the Journey be x minute, then  the required in second third part of the Journey is 3x/2 & in the last third part of the Journey time required is 15x/8
i.e x+3x/2+15x/8=350 min
x = 80 min

7.(A)
From 1st condition
48/u+72/d = 12 ---- (I)
72/u+48/d = 13 ---- (II)
From eq (I) & (ii)
u = 8 kmph
d = 12 kmph
Speed of streem = (12-8)1/2 = 2 kmph

8.(B)
D = 9/2 = 4.5 kmph
U = 9/6 = 1.5 kmph
x = (4.5+1.5) 1/2 = 3.5 kmph
y = (4.5-1.5)1/2 = 1.5 kmph

9.(C)
Let speed of 1st train = x m/s
& speed of other train = y m/s
(d/x)/(d/y) = 4/5
y/x = 4/5
Required time = (d+d)/(x+y)
= (4x+5y)/(x+y)
=( 4*5+5*4)/(4+5) = 40/9

10.(B)
Let speed of 1st train = x kmph
& speed of 2nd train = (x+10) kmph
So,
X*10 = (x+10) 8
X= 40 kmph
Required Average speed = (2*40*50)/(40+50) = 44(4/9)
