MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 3

### A person generally reaches his office 0.50 hours late. One day, he increased his speed by 25% and arrived 15 minutes late. How much time does he need to complete his journey if he wants to reach his office on time?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 3

Speed → Initial : New = 100 : 125 = 4 : 5
Time → Initial : New = 5 : 4

= 75 minutes = 1.25 hours
So the answer = 1.25 – 0.50 = 0.75 hour
Hence, Option B is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 4

If a person reduces his speed by 60%, he reaches his destination 4.80 hours late. What is the time that he usually takes?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 4

Initial speed : New Speed → 100 : (100 – 60) = 5 : 2
Time → Initial : New = 2 : 5

Hence, Option C is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 5

Kamal reduces his speed by 20 km/hr and reaches his destination, which is 480 km away, exactly 2 hours late. What is the time (in hrs) he usually takes?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 5

240S – 240S + 4800 = S2 – 20S
S2 – 20S – 4800 = 0
S2 – 80S + 60S – 4800 = 0
S = 80

Hence, Option C is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 6

A and B start moving towards each other from points X and Y respectively. After A and B meet on the way, they take 49 seconds and 36 seconds to reach Y and X respectively. If the speed of A is 12 m/s, what is the distance between X and Y?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 6

So the answer = 12 × 49 + 14 × 36 = 1092 meters
Hence, Option C is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 7

Manoj is walking at 4.40 km/hr along the boundary of a circle-shaped field. He starts from Point A and reaches Point C after 24 minutes. If Point A is diametrically opposite to Point C, what is the area of the field?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 7

Distance covered in 20 minutes

πr = 1.76

r = 0.56 km = 560 meters

Hence, Option D is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 8

What is the average speed of a man who travels 28.57% of the time at 40 km/hr, 14.29% of the time at 30 km/hr and the rest of the time at 50 km/hr?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 8

Let the total time = 7
Time at 40 km/hr = 2 units
Time at 30 km/hr = 1 unit
Time at 50 km/hr = 7 – (2 + 1) = 4 units

Hence, Option C is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 9

Binni travels from Point X to Point Y at 40 km/hr and comes back to Point X at 60 km/hr. If she takes overall 20 hours, what is the distance between X and Y?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 9

Let the distance = D

D = 480
So the answer = 480 km

Initial time (at 20 km/hr)

Alternate solution:
Let the distance = D

D = 50

Hence, Option A is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 12

A and B start moving towards each other from points X and Y respectively. After they meet on the way, A and B take 76.50 seconds and 34 seconds to reach Y and X respectively. If the speed of A is 8 m/s, what is the distance between X and Y?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 12

76.50 : 34 = 9 : 4

So the answer = 8 × 76.50 + 12 × 34 = 1020 meters
Hence, Option D is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 13

A and B start from Point X and Point Y respectively at 5 am. They start moving towards Y and X respectively. If A reaches Y at 9 am and B reaches X at 11 am, at what time do they meet?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 13

Time taken by A to cover the distance = 9 – 5 = 4 hours
Time taken by B to cover the distance = 11 – 5 = 6 hours
Time → A : B = 4 : 6 = 2 : 3
Speeds → A : B = 3 : 2
So A has to cover 3 distance out of “3 + 2 = 5” till their meeting
Time taken by A till their meeting

= 2 hours 24 minutes
So the answer = 5 + 2:24 = 7:24 am
Hence, Option A is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 14

A leaves Point X for Point Y at 10 pm, and B leaves Point Y for Point X at 7 pm. The distance between X and Y is 729 km. Each of them can cover this distance in 8 hours. At what time do they meet on the way?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 14

If each of them can travel 1 unit distance in 1 hour,
Total distance = 8 units
Till 10 pm, B travels = (10 pm – 7 pm) = 3 hours = 3 units
Remaining distance = 8 – 3 = 5
After 10 pm, time taken by them till meeting

= 2 hours 30 minutes
So the answer = 10 pm + 2:30 = 12:30 am
Hence, Option B is correct.

MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 15

A and B start from Point X to Point Y, and their speeds are in the ratio 3 : 8. B takes 2.50 hours less than the time taken by A to reach Y. If the difference between their speeds is 15 km/hr, what is the distance between X and Y?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Speed, Time and Distance - 2 - Question 15

Speed → A : B = 3 : 8
Time → A : B = 8 : 3

So the answer = 9 × 4 = 36 km
Hence, Option D is correct.
