(a) 10 minutes
(b) 12 minutes
(c) 13 minutes

(a) 4.15 o’clock
(b) 5.15 o’clock
(c) 6.25 o’clock
(d) Can’t be determined
Solutions
S1. Ans.(a)
Therefore,
(3/5)=(AE)/(AC – AE)
3(5.6 – AE) = 5AE
3 × 5.6 = 8AE
AE=(3 × 5.6)/8
AE = 2.1 cm

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Area of a triangle =1/2 [x1(y2-y3)+x2(y3-y1)+x3 (y1-y2)]
=(1/2)[4(-2+16)+3(-16-4)+3(4+2)]
=1/2 [56-60+18]=7

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol.
AO=√(OQ^2-AQ^2 )=√(5^2-4^2 )=√9=3
Now, from similar ∆s QAO & QPR
PR = 2OA = 2 × 3 = 6

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. We know that,
Sum of exterior angle in any polygon = 360°
So,
x + 90 + 115 + 75 = 360°
x = 80°

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. The triangle PQR is isosceles
⇒ MR/QR by converse of proportionally theorem.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Time of rest per hour
=(Difference in average speed )/(Speed without stoppage )
=(75 – 60)/75=(1/5) hr. = 12 minutes.

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Length of the second train = Relative speed × Time taken to cross each other – Length of first train
={(40-22)x(5/18)}×60-125=175 m.

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let first train also starts at 3 : 20 and add 40 km. to the total distance
Total distance = 490 km
Total speed = 140 km/hr
Total time =D/S=490/140 = 3.5 hr.
∴ They will meet at 3 : 20 p.m. + 3.5 hr.
= 6:50 p.m.

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Distance already covered by A when B starts moving at 2o’clock = 3km/hr × (2 – 1) hr. = 3 kms
Now, time taken by B to catch A
=(3 km )/(4-3) km/hr= 3 hrs
B will catch A at (2’o clock + 3 hrs) i.e. at 5 o’clock
Distance where B will catch A = 4 km/hr × (5 – 2) hr. = 12 km.
Also at 5’o clock, C will be at 5 km/hr × (5 – 3) hrs = 10 kms
i.e. at 5’o clock distance between (A or B) and C = (12 – 10)km = 2km
Now, time to meet A & C
(2 km )/(5+3) km/hr
=1/(4 hr)=15 min
Time of meeting of of A & C
= 5 : 15 o’clock
