2.  A is twice as fast as B and B is thrice as fast as C is. the journey covered by C in 54 minutes will be covered by B in?

18 min
27 min
38 min
9 min

```Answer

Answer: Option  A Explanation:Let  C's speed = x km/hr. then, B's speed = 3x km/hr and A 's speed = 6x km/hr.
Hence, ratio of speed of A,B,C = 6x : 3x : x = 6 : 3: 1.
Ratio of times taken = 1/6 : 1/3 : 1= 1 : 2 : 6.
If C takes 6 min., then B takes 2 min.
If C takes 54 min., then B takes (2/6*54) min. = 18 min. ```

3.  If a person walks at 14 km/hr instead of 10km/hr, he would have walked 20km more. the actual distance traveled by him is?

50 km
56 km
70 km
80 km

```Answer

Answer: Option  A Explanation:Let the actual distance traveled be x km

6 km
7.5 km
8 km
9.5 km

```Answer

Answer: Option  B Explanation:Let the distance be x km then
x/3- x/3.75 = 1/2 = 2.5x - 2x = 3.75
x = 3.75/0.50 = 15/2 = 7.5km ```

640 km
None of these

```Answer

Answer: Option  B Explanation:Let the distance be x km then
x/7 1/2 - x/8 =4 = 2x/15 - x/8 = 4 = x = 480km ```
