How to study this subject


11. 

A 270 metres long train running at the speed of 120 kmph crosses another train running in opposite direction at the speed of 80 kmph in 9 seconds. What is the length of the other train?

A.230 mB.240 m
C.260 mD.320 m
E.None of these

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Relative speed = (120 + 80) km/hr

   =200 x5m/sec
18
   =500m/sec.
9

Let the length of the other train be x metres.

Then,x + 270=500
99

 x + 270 = 500

 x = 230.



12. 

A goods train runs at the speed of 72 kmph and crosses a 250 m long platform in 26 seconds. What is the length of the goods train?

A.230 mB.240 m
C.260 mD.270 m

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Speed =72 x5m/sec= 20 m/sec.
18

Time = 26 sec.

Let the length of the train be x metres.

Then,x + 250= 20
26

 x + 250 = 520

 x = 270.



13. 

Two trains, each 100 m long, moving in opposite directions, cross each other in 8 seconds. If one is moving twice as fast the other, then the speed of the faster train is:

A.30 km/hrB.45 km/hr
C.60 km/hrD.75 km/hr

14. 

Two trains 140 m and 160 m long run at the speed of 60 km/hr and 40 km/hr respectively in opposite directions on parallel tracks. The time (in seconds) which they take to cross each other, is:

A.9B.9.6
C.10D.10.8

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Relative speed = (60 + 40) km/hr =100 x5m/sec=250m/sec.
189

Distance covered in crossing each other = (140 + 160) m = 300 m.

Required time =300 x9sec=54sec = 10.8 sec.
2505



15. 

A train 110 metres long is running with a speed of 60 kmph. In what time will it pass a man who is running at 6 kmph in the direction opposite to that in which the train is going?

A.5 secB.6 sec
C.7 secD.10 sec

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Speed of train relative to man = (60 + 6) km/hr = 66 km/hr.

   =66 x5m/sec
18
   =55m/sec.
3
 Time taken to pass the man =110 x3sec = 6 sec.

16. 

A train travelling at a speed of 75 mph enters a tunnel 31/2 miles long. The train is 1/4 mile long. How long does it take for the train to pass through the tunnel from the moment the front enters to the moment the rear emerges?

A.2.5 minB.3 min
C.3.2 minD.3.5 min

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Total distance covered
=(7+1(miles
24
=15miles.
4
Therefore Time taken
=(15(hrs
4 x 75
=1hrs
20
=(1x 60(min.
20
= 3 min.



17. 

A train 800 metres long is running at a speed of 78 km/hr. If it crosses a tunnel in 1 minute, then the length of the tunnel (in meters) is:

A.130B.360
C.500D.540

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

Speed =(78 x5(m/sec=(65(m/sec.
183

Time = 1 minute = 60 seconds.

Let the length of the tunnel be x metres.

Then,(800 + x(=65
603

=> 3(800 + x) = 3900

=> x = 500.



18. 

A 300 metre long train crosses a platform in 39 seconds while it crosses a signal pole in 18 seconds. What is the length of the platform?

A.320 mB.350 m
C.650 mD.Data inadequate

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Speed =(300(m/sec =50m/sec.
183

Let the length of the platform be x metres.

Then,(x + 300(=50
393

=> 3(x + 300) = 1950

=> x = 350 m.



19. 

A train speeds past a pole in 15 seconds and a platform 100 m long in 25 seconds. Its length is:

A.50 mB.150 m
C.200 mD.Data inadequate

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

Let the length of the train be x metres and its speed by y m/sec.

Then,x= 15     =>     y =x.
y15
Thereforex + 100=x
2515

=> 15(x + 100) = 25x

=> 15x + 1500 = 25x

=> 1500 = 10x

=> x = 150 m.



20. 

A train moves past a telegraph post and a bridge 264 m long in 8 seconds and 20 seconds respectively. What is the speed of the train?

A.69.5 km/hrB.70 km/hr
C.79 km/hrD.79.2 km/hr

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let the length of the train be x metres and its speed by y m/sec.

Then,x= 8     =>     x = 8y
y
Now,x + 264y
20

=> 8y + 264 = 20y

=> y = 22.

Therefore Speed = 22 m/sec =(22 x18(km/hr = 79.2 km/hr.
