A) 150 m
B) 65 m
C) 190 m
D) 200 m

Correct Answer :200 m
Explanation :

Raman covers 1 km in 8 min and suman cover 1 km in 10 min.
If they starts together, then distance covered by suman in 8 min

In 1 km race, A beats B by 18 m or 9 s. Find the A' s time over the course.

A) 391 s
B) 591 s
C) 491 s
D) 500 s

Correct Answer :491 s
Explanation :

Clearly, B covers 18 m in 9 s.
B's time over the course = 9/18 x 1000 = 500 s
A' s time over the course = (500 - 9) = 491 s

In a 100 m race A runs at a speed of 5/3 m/s. If A give a start of 4 m to B and still beats him by 12 seconds, what is speed of B?

A)

5/4 m/s


B)

7/5 m/s


C)

4/3 m/s


D)

6/5 m/s



Correct Answer :

4/3 m/s


Explanation :

Let the distance is 100 m and speed of B be x m/s. Then, according to the question
96/x - 100/(5/3) = 12
96/x - 60 = 12
96/x = 72
x = 96/72
x = 4/3

Speed of B is 4/3 m/s.
