(a) 31 min
(b) 36 min
(c) 38 min
(d) 40 min

Answers and Solution:
1.(d) Speed of train = 120*5/18=100/3 m/s
(320 + x) = 24 x  100/3
320 + x = 800
∴x = 480
So platform length = 480
So, speed of man = 480/(4*60 = 2 m/s

2.(c)Total distance = 39 + 25 = 64 km
Time taken = 45 + 35 = 80 minutes = 4/3 hours
So, average speed = 64/(4/3) = 48 km/h

3.(c)1st 2 hours =70 x 2 = 140
Next 2 hours = 80 x 2 = 160
After 4 hour total distance cover = 300
So next 45 km with speed of 90 km/h is 45/90=1/2 hour
So, total time taken = 4 1/2 hour

4.(a) For 150 km he take 150/15 = 10  hour
For 150 km he stop =  150/20=(7x10) = 70 minute
So total time taken = 11 hours 10 minutes

5.(b)Speed of train = 120/4 = 30  m/s
Total distance = 225 + 120 = 345 m
Relative speed = 345/15 = 23 m/s
But the speed of 1st train is 30 m/s.
So, speed of 2nd train = 30 – 23 = 7 m/s

6.(a)Speed of bike = 720/9*3/4 = 60 km/h
Speed of train = 60/15*27 = 108 km/h
So, train cover = 108 x 7 = 756 km

7.(b)Speed = 108 x 5/18 = 30 m/s
Length of platform = 30 x 12 – 280 = 80 m
Speed of boy = 80/10 = 8 m/s

8.(d)Time = 210/35 = 6 hours
Speed of truck = (210-18)/6 = 32 km/h

9.(b) 224/4*1/4*7 = 98 km

10.(d) (44*50)/(50+5)= 40 min.
