Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Time, Speed & Distance (Boat and Streams) - 3 - Question 10


Time taken by the sheep to travel

Distance travelled by the signal = 60 × 200 = 12000 m. = 12 km.
Let the depth of the sea is x km.
then from ΔABC, AB  = x km, BC = (12 – x) km.
AC = 500m, = 0.5km.
Now, (BC)2 = (AB)2 + (AC)2
(12 – x)2 = x2 + (0.5)2.
144 –  24x = 0.25.
x = 6km.
