6.

7.

 A. I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer B. II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer C. Either I or II alone sufficient to answer D. Both I and II are not sufficient to answer E. Both I and II are necessary to answer

8.

 A. I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer B. II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer C. Either I or II alone sufficient to answer D. Both I and II are not sufficient to answer E. Both I and II are necessary to answer

9.

 Two cars pass each other in opposite direction. How long would they take to be 500 km apart? I. The sum of their speeds is 135 km/hr. II. The difference of their speed is 25 km/hr.
 A. I alone sufficient while II alone not sufficient to answer B. II alone sufficient while I alone not sufficient to answer C. Either I or II alone sufficient to answer D. Both I and II are not sufficient to answer E. Both I and II are necessary to answer

1.

Distance = (240 x 5) = 1200 km.

Speed = Distance/Time

Speed = 1200/(5/3) km/hr.     [We can write 1 hours as 5/3 hours] Required speed = 1200 x 3 km/hr = 720 km/hr. 5

2.

Let speed of the car be x kmph.

 Then, speed of the train = 150 x = 3 x kmph. 100 2 75 – 75 = 125 x (3/2)x 10 x 60 75 – 50 = 5 x x 24 x = 25 x24 = 120 kmph. 5

3.

 (1/2)x + (1/2)x = 10 21 24 x + x = 20 21 24 15x = 168 x 20 x = 168 x 20 = 224 km. 15

4.

 Time taken = 1 hr 40 min 48 sec = 1 hr 40 4 min = 1 51 hrs = 126 hrs. 5 75 75

Let the actual speed be x km/hr.

 Then, 5 x x 126 = 42 7 75 x = 42 x 7 x 75 = 35 km/hr. 5 x 126

5.

Let the speed of the train be x km/hr and that of the car be y km/hr.

 Then, 120 + 480 = 8 1 + 4 = 1 ….(i) x y x y 15
 And, 200 + 400 = 25 1 + 2 = 1 ….(ii) x y 3 x y 24

Solving (i) and (ii), we get: x = 60 and y = 80. Ratio of speeds = 60 : 80 = 3 : 4

6.

Since ratio of speed of X : Y is 3 : 4, then ratio of time will be 4 : 3.

I. If Y takes 3 min, then X takes 4 min.

 II. If Y takes 36 min, then X takes 4 x 36 min = 48 min. 3

Thus, I and II together give the answer. Correct answer is (E)

7.

I. AB = 125% of CB 100 = 125 x (100 – x) 100 100 – x = 100 x 100 = 80 125 x = 20 km. AC = 20 km.

Thus, I alone gives the answer.

 II. AC = 1 CB 4 x = 1 (100 – x) 4 5x = 100

x = 20. AC = 20 km.

Thus, II alone gives the answer. Correct answer is (C).

8.

Let the distance between the two stations be x km.

I. Then, speed of the mail train = (y + 12) km/hr.

 II. x – x = 40 . y (y + 12) 60

Thus, even I and II together do not give x. Correct answer is (D)

9.

I gives, relative speed = 135 km/hr. Time taken = 500 hrs. 135

II does not give the relative speed. I alone gives the answer and II is irrelevant. Correct answer is (A).
