Questions and Answers

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

Answer : A

Explanation

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

Q 2 - A 130 m long train crosses a bridge 30 seconds at 45 kmph. The length of the bridge is ?

A - 200 m

B - 225 m

C - 245 m

D - 250 m

Answer : C

Explanation

Let the length  of the bridge be x m.
Speed of the train = (130+x)/30 m/sec.
But, speed =(45*5/18)m/sec. =25/2 m/sec.
⇒ (130+x)/30 = 25/2 
⇒ 130 + x = 375
∴ x = 245 m

Q 3 - A train crosses a pole in 15 sec. while it crosses a 100m long platform in 25 sec. The length of the train is

A - 125 m

B - 135 m

C - 150 m

D - 175 m

Answer : C

Explanation

Let the length of the train be x metres. Then,
 x/15 =(100+x)/25  ⇒ 25x=1500+15x ⇒ 10x = 1500 ⇒ x = 150
Hence, the length  of the train is 150 m.

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

Answer : D

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 of length 150m takes 10 sec. to pass over another train 100m long coming from the opposite direction. If the speed of the first train be 30 kmph, then the speed of the second train is

A - 54 kmph

B - 60 kmph

C - 72 kmph

D - 36 kmph

Answer : B

Explanation

Relative speed =(150+100)/10 m/sec.  =25 m/sec.= (25*18/5)km/hr = 90 km/hr 
∴ speed of the  second train = (90-30) kmph  = 60 kmph

Q 6 - A train is running at the rate of 40kmph. A man is going in the same direction parallel to the train at 25kmph . If the train crosses the man in 48 sec. , the length of the train is

A - 50 m

B - 100 m

C - 150 m

D - 200 m

Answer : D

Explanation

relative speed = (40-25)kmph =15kmph  =(15*5/18) m/sec. =25/6 m/sec.
Length of the train = (25/6*48)m= 200 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

Answer : A

Explanation

Let the distance between meerut and Ghaziabad be x km.
Time taken by y to cover x km =3/2 hours.
Time taken by X to cover x km = 1 hours
Speed of x = xkm/hr    speed of y = 2x/3 km/hr 
Xy+2xy/3 =x   ⇒ y (1+2/3) =1 ⇒ y = 3/5 hours = (3/5*60) min. =36 min.
Hence, the two train meet at 4.36 p.m
