# Quant Quiz (Boat and Streams) For IBPS/RBI Exam

We have started the 56 days Study Plan for IBPS PO Prelims. This study plan is to efficiently utilise time and hard work to channelise it towards smart work. From now quizzes on Bankersadda will be according to the given study plan and this will help you prepare important topics in limited time.
Today is DAY 12 of the study plan and in Quantitative Aptitude today’s chapter is Boat and Streams

(a) 8 Km
(b) 12 Km
(c) 6 Km
(e) None of these

Q10. A person can swim at 7 (1/2) Km/h in stagnant water. In a river with 1.5 Km/h current, the person swims to a certain distance and comes back within 50 min. What is the distance between the two points?
