#1. A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. What is the length of the train?
Answer: Option D
Solution:
Speed=(60×5/18)m/sec=(503)m/sec
Length of the train = (Speed×Time)
∴Length of the train = (50/3×9)m=150m
#2. A train 125 m long passes a man, running at 5 km/hr in the same direction in which the train is going, in 10 seconds. The speed of the train is:
Answer: Option B
Solution:
Speed of the train relative to man=(125/10)m/sec
=(25/2)m/sec
=(25/2×18/5)km/hr
=45km/hr
Let the speed of the train be xkm/hr.
Then, relative speed=(x−5)km/hr
∴x−5=45⇒x=50km/hr
#3. The length of the bridge, which a train 130 metres long and travelling at 45 km/hr can cross in 30 seconds, is:
Answer: Option C
Solution:
Speed=(45×5/18)m/sec=(252)m/sec
Time=30sec Let the length of bridge be x metres
Then,130 x/30=25/2
⇒2(130 x)=750
⇒x=245m
#4. Two trains running in opposite directions cross a man standing on the platform in 27 seconds and 17 seconds respectively and they cross each other in 23 seconds. The ratio of their speeds is:
Answer: Option B
Solution:
Let the speeds of the two trains be x m/sec and ym/sec respectively.
Then, length of the first train=27x metres,
and length of the second train=17y metres.
∴27x 17y/x y=23
⇒27x 17y=23x 23y
⇒4x=6y
⇒x/y=3/2
#5. A train passes a station platform in 36 seconds and a man standing on the platform in 20 seconds. If the speed of the train is 54 km/hr, what is the length of the platform?
Answer: Option B
Solution:
Speed=(54×5/18)m/sec=15m/sec
Length of the train=(15×20)m=300m
Let the length of the platform be x metres
Then,x 300/36=15
⇒x 300=540
⇒x=240m
