Q 1 - A train 210 m long is travelling with a speed of 63 kmph. How long will it take to pass a signal post?

A - 12 sec

B - 14 sec

C - 15 sec

D - 18 sec

### Explanation

```speed =(63*5/18)m/sec =35/2 m/sec
Required time =(210*2/35) sec. =12 sec.```

Q 2 - A train 100 m long crosses a bridge of length 100 m in 6 sec. The train will cross another bridge of length 200 m in:

A - 8 sec

B - 9 sec

C - 10 sec

D - 11 sec

### Explanation

```Time taken to cover (100+100)m= 6 sec
Speed of the train = 200/6  m/sec.
Time taken to cover (100+200)m = (300*6/200) sec =9 sec.```

Q 3 - A train 100 m long moving at a speed of 50km/hr crosses a train 120m long coming from opposite side on parallel tracks in 6 sec. The speed of the second train is

A - 132 kmph

B - 82 kmph

C - 60 kmph

D - 50 kmph

### Explanation

```let the speed of the second  train be x kmph.
Their relative speed = (50+x) kmph ={ (50+x)* 5/18) m/sec.
Sum of their lengths = (100+120)m =220 m
220/ [(50+x)*5/18] = 6   ⇒30 (50+x)= 3960
⇒ 30x  =(3960-1500) = 2460
X = 82
Speed of the second train = 82 kmph.```

Q 4 - Two trains are running in opposite directions at 36kmph and 45kmph cross each other in 20 sec. if one train is 200m long, the length of the other train is

A - 144 m

B - 200 m

C - 240 m

D - 250 m

### Explanation

```let the length of the other train be x meters.
Sum of their length =(200+x)m
Relative speed =(36+45) kmph =81kmph = (81*5/18)m/sec. = 45/2 m/sec.
(200+x)/ (45/2) = 20  ⇒ 400 +2x = 900 ⇒ 2x = 500  ⇒ x = 250
∴  length of the other train is 250m ```

Q 5 - A train takes 5 sec. to pass an electric pole. If the length of the train is 120 m, the time taken by it to cross a railway platform 180 m long ,is

A - 25/2 sec

B - 15/2 sec

C - 13/2 sec

D - 10/3 sec

### Explanation

```Speed of the train = (120/5)m/sec. =24m/sec.
Time taken to cross the platform =(120+180)/24 sec. =300/24 sec= 25/2 sec.```

Q 6 - A train is running at 36kmph completely crosses another train having half its length and travelling in the opposite direction at 54kmph, in 12 seconds. If it passes a platform in 3/2 minute , the length of the platform is

A - 560 m

B - 600 m

C - 700 m

D - 750 m

### Explanation

```Let the length of slower train be x meters.
Then, the length of faster train = x/2 m.
Relative speed = (36+54)kmph =(90*5/18)m/sec. =25m/sec.
(x+x/2)/25= 12 ⇒  3x/2*25= 12  ⇒3x =600 ⇒ x =200
Length of slower train = 200m
Let the length of the platform be y meters. Then,
(200+y)/(36*5/18)= 90 ⇒ 200+y= 900 ⇒ y= 700
Hence, the length of the platform is 700 m.```

Q 7 - A train X start from Meerut at 4 pm and reaches Ghaziabad at 5p.m while another train Y start from Ghaziabad at 4p.m and reaches Meerut at 5.30 p.m . The two train will cross each other at

A - 4.36 pm

B - 4.42 pm

C - 4.48 pm

D - 4.50 pm

```Let the distance between meerut and Ghaziabad be x km.
