21.  A train speeds past a pole in 15 seconds and a platform 100 m long in 25 seconds. Its length is?

50 m
150 m
200 m

```Answer

Answer: Option  B Explanation:Let the length of the train be x meters and its speed be y m/sec
They x/y =15
Y=x/15
x+100/25 = x/15
x=150 m ```

22.  A train running at the speed of 60 km/hr crosses a pole in 9 seconds. What is the length of the train?

120 meters
180 meters
150 meters
None of these

```Answer

Answer: Option  C Explanation:Speed = (60*5/18) m/sec = (50/3) m/sec.
Length of the train = (speed * time) = (50/3*9) m = 150 m. ```

23.  A train running at 54 km/ph takes 20 seconds to pass a platform.Next it takes 12 seconds to pass a man walking at 6km/ph in the same direction in which the train is going.Find the length of the train and the length of the platform?

135 m
142 m
140 m
138 m

```Answer

Answer: Option  C Explanation:Let the length of the train be X meters and length of platform be Y meters.
Speed of the train relative to man = (54-6) km/ph =48 km/ph  = (48*5/18)m/sec = 40/3 m/sec
In passing a man the train covers its own length with relative speed.
Length of train =(relative speed * time) = (40/3*12)m =160m
Also speed of the train =(54*5/18)m/sec = 15 m/sec
Hence x+y/15 =20
x+y = 300
y= (300 -160) m = 140 m  ```

24.  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?

120 m
240 m
300 m
None of these

```Answer

Answer: Option  B Explanation:Speed = (54*5/18) m/sec = 15 m/sec.
Length of the train =(15*20) m = 300m
Let the length of the platform be X meters
Then X+300/36 = 15<=> X+300 = 540 <=> X= 240m ```
