**Note**

**Few data are missing (indicated by --) in the table and you are expected to calculate them from the available data if required.**

__(1)__**There are in total 8 destinations (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII and VIII). If a car has to go from one destination to another destination it will have to travel through in between destinations. For ex. If car A travels from destination I to IV. it will have to travel through destinations II and III**

__(2)__**Time required column depicts time required by a car mentioned in the same row to cover the distance between destinations mentioned in the same row.**

### ANSWERS:

**1.**c

**2.**a

**3.**b

**4.**d

**5.**b

### EXPLANATION:

According to the given informationUseful formulas is

d=s×t , t=d/s ; d=distance , t=time , s=speed

two cars or trains are moving to opposite towards eachother the time take they meet is =(total distance)/(sum of the speeds)

Distance Between V and VI= 36× 8 2/3

= 36×26/3=312 km

Between VI and VII=22×6 7/11

=73×22/11= 146 km

Between VII and VIII=42×13/3= 182 km

**1. c**distance between destinations IV and V=162

distance between destinations VII and VIII=182

ratio is 162 : 182 è81:91

**2. a**t =distance b\w IV and V/speed

=162/18=9 hrs

t= distance b\w V and VI/speed

=312/60=5 1/5 hrs

Avg speed= total dis/total time

=474/(9+5 1/5)

=38.85

Approximately 39 kmph

**3. b**t=( total distance I to V) /(sum of speeds of A&D)

total dis=(188+254+228+162)=832 km

D ‘s speed=162/6=27 kmph

total speeds=77+27=104 kmph

time taken by they meet=832/104= 8 hrs

that means they at 1 pm (5 am +8 hrs=1pm)

**4.d**Total distance b\w =188+254+228+162+312+146+182

=1472 km

B’s speed=254/ 5 12/23

=254×23/127

=46 kmph

Time taken by B to travel I to VIII=1472/46=32 hrs

**5.b**Total distance I to VIII =1472

Time taken by to reach I to VIII= 1472/77=19.11

=19

H’s speed =77+10=87

Time taken by to reach I to VIII=1472/87=16.88

=17

So H reach destination 2 hrs early than A (approx)
