SSC CGL Tier 1 Practice Test - 16 - Question 20

X and Y start moving towards each other from two places 200 m apart. After covering a distance of 60 m by each of them, Y turns left and goes 20 m, then he turns right and goes 40 m. He then turns right again and comes back at the road on which he had started walking. If X and Y walked with the same speed in the beginning, what is the distance between them now?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Tier 1 Practice Test - 16 - Question 20

Clearly Y moves 60 m from Q upto A, then 20 m upto B, 40 m upto C and then upto D.
So, AD = BC = 40 m
QD = (60 + 40) m = 100 m
Since A and B travel with the same speed, A will travel the same speed along the horizontal as B travels in the same time i.e.
Distance between X and Y = DE
=(200 – 100 – 60) m = 40 m

For the protection of his interests individual is free to become a member of any association.

PASSAGE – I

The Critical Faculty is the most potent one in the human make-up. Its pervasiveness and force have not properly been recognized because like breathing, it is so much a part and parcel of human activity. The difference between a simpleton and an intelligent man, according to the man who is convinced that he is of the latter category, is that the former whole heartedly accepts all things that he sees and hears while the latter never admits anything except after a most searching scrutiny. He imagines his intelligence to be a sieve of closely woven mesh through which nothing but the finest can pass.

The critical sense is essential for keeping social transactions in a warm state. Otherwise life would become very dull and goody-goody. The critical faculty is responsible for a lot of give and take in life. It increases our awareness of our surroundings; it sounds dignified no doubt, but it seems also to mean that we can watch someone else's back better than our own! We never know our own defects till they are pointed out to us, and even then we need not accept them. We always question the bonafides of the man who tells us unpleasant facts. On the surface it is all very well to say, 'I want an honest criticism; that will help me, not blind compliments'. I wish people would mean it.
