When B scores 50 points, C scores 45 points.
When B scores 90 points, C scores (45/50 *90) points = 81 points.
∴ B can give C, 9 points   in a game of 90.

Q 2 - A can run 20 m while B runs 25 m. In a km race, B beats A by:

A - 125m

B - 200m

C - 225m

D - 250m

Answer : B

Explanation

In a 25m race, B beats A by 5 m.
In a km race , B beats A by (5/25*1000) m = 200m

Q 3 - In a 100m race, A can beat B by 25m and B can beat C by 4m. In the same race, A can beat C by

A - 29m

B - 21m

C - 26m

D - 28m

Answer : D

Explanation

A :B = 100:75  and B :C = 100:96
∴ A :C = (A/B * B/C ) = (100/75*100/96 ) = 100/72 = 100:72
So, A  beats C by (100-72) m = 28m

Q 4 - In a 500 m race, the ratio of the speeds of A and B is 3:4. A has a start of 140m. A wins by:

A - 10m

B - 20m

C - 40m

D - 60m

Answer : B

Explanation

.To reach  the winning  post A has to cover (500-140)m = 360m
 While A covers 3 m , B covers 4 m.
While A  covers 360m , B covers (4/3*360)m = 480m
∴    A wins by 20 m.

Q 5 - In a 100m race, A beats B by 10m and C by 13m. In a race of 180m, B will beat C by :

A - 4.5m

B - 5.4m

C - 6m

D - 7.5m

Answer : C

Explanation

A: B :C = 100: 90:87 
  ∴ B/C = 90/87 = 90*2/87*2  = 180/174
Thus,  while B covers 180m , C covers 174 m.
∴  B beats C by 6m.

Q 6 - A and B take part in a 100m race. A runs at 5km/hr. A gives B a start of 8m and still beats him by 8 sec. B?s speed is:

A - 5.15 km/hr

B - 4.15 km/hr

C - 4.25 km/hr

D - 4.14 km/hr

Answer : D

Explanation

A's  speed  =(5*5/18) m/s = 25/18m/s.
Time taken by A to cover 100m  = (100* 18/25) sec.  =72 sec.
∴    B covers 92 m in (72+8) sec.= 80 sec.
∴ B's speed = (92/80)m/sec. = (92/80* 18/5) km/hr =  4.14km/hr

Q 7 - At a game of billiards, A can give B 15 points in 60 and A can give C 20 in 60. How many can B give C in a game of 90 ?

A - 10 points

B - 12 points

C - 14 points

D - 16 points

Answer : A

Explanation

A: B :C = 60:45: 40
 ∴  B:C = 45/40 =9/8 = 9*10/8*10 = 90/80
Thus , if B score 90 points , then C score 80 points.
B can give C 10 points in a game of 90.
