# APTITUDE QUESTIONS (SPEED TIME AND DISTANCE):

11. A man on tour travels first 160 km at 64 km/hr and the next 160 km at 80 km/hr. What will be the average speed for the first 320 km of the tour?

A) 30 km/hr

B) 60 km/hr

C) 71.11 km/hr

D) 70 km/hr

E) None of these

View Answer

Answer: option (C)

Explanation:

Let total time taken = (160/64+160/8 ) hrs = 9/2 hrs.

∴ Average speed = (320*2/9 ) km/hr = 71.11 km/hr

12. A train running at 7/11 of its own speed reached a place in 22 hours. If the train run at its own speed, than how much time could be saved?

A) 7 hours

B) 8 hours

C) 14 hours

D) 16 hours

E) None of these

View Answer

Answer: option (B)

Explanation:

New speed = 7/11 of usual speed

∴ New time = 11/7 of usual time

So, 11/7 of usual time = 22 hrs => usual time = ((22 * 7 )/11) = 14 hrs.

So, time saved = (22 – 14) = 8 hrs.

13. A man can reach a certain place in 30 hours. If the man speed is reduced by 1/15 th. Then he goes 10km less in that time. Find his speed.

A) 4 km/hr

B) 5 km/hr

C) 51/2 km/hr

D) 6 km/hr

E) None of these

View Answer

Answer: option (B)

Explanation:

Let the speed be x km/hr.

So, 30x – 30 * (14/15)x = 10 2x = 10 x = 5 km/hr

14. Excluding stoppages, the speed of a bus is 54 kmph and including stoppages, it is 45 kmph. So, for how many minutes does the bus stop per hour?

C) 6 kmph

D) 8 kmph

E) None of these

View Answer

Answer: option (A)
