Races and Games of skills is an important chapter for banking examinations point of view. Here on BankExamsToday.com I am analyzing various exam question papers from past many years. Today I am listing down 10 questions that repeated in almost all the exams.

Time taken by A to finish the race = 200-=6 = 194 seconds = 3 minutes 14 seconds

Hence speed of B = 4.75 m/s.

A beats B by 20 metres .

i.e. when B covers 88 m C covers 85 m.

when B covers 176 m, C would cover

B would beat C by 6 m in a race of 176 m.

Hint : Speed of Ram with respect to shyam= 5x - 4x = x ms -1

Hint : Let the speed of P and Q be P m/s and q m/s respectively .

## Ques 1 .
