### Question 1

Bus X travels 50% faster than bus Y. They start together and meet at the same time after travelling a distance of 36km. What is the speed of the bus X, if the bus Y wasted 6 hours during its journey?

### Question 2

Two cars A and B begin to move towards each other and meet midway after travelling equal distance. What is the initial distance between them if the speeds of A and B are 3 km/h and 9 km/h, and B started 1 hour late?

### Question 3

A train takes 5 hours less if its speed is increased by 12 km/hr. What is the normal speed if the distance is 120km?

**A**

12.

**B**

13.

**C**

11.

**D**

14.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the normal speed be x km/hr. We have been given $120/x$ - $120/{x + 12}$ = 5. This translates to the quadratic equation $5x^2 + 60x - 1440 = 0$, which can be solved to obtain x = 12 as the answer. If you don't want to solve the equation, then you can put each option into this equation and check that way. But this trick will work only if all the options have some numerical value.

### Question 4

Two trains start simultaneously. The first train moves from Hyderabad to Bangalore, whereas the second train moves from Bangalore to Hyderabad. After they meet at a point in between, they respectively take 36 hours and 25 hours to reach their destinations. What is the ratio of their speeds?
