B)4 hrs 15 min

C)4 hrs 40 min

D)4 hrs 25 min

E)None of these

3)The speed of a boat in still water is 22 km/hr & the speed of the stream is 2 km/hr .The time taken by the boat to travel from P to Q downstream is 32 minutes less than the time taken by the same boat to travel from Q to R upstream.

Ans.

1.E-50)

Let the distance from Q to R is =X km

So P to R = x/5 Km

According to question

{X/(16+4) }+ {(x/5)/(16-4)}=7.5

X=50 km.

2.C-4 hrs 40 min)

DN speed = 24 km/hr

UP speed=18 km/hr

According to question

Reqd time=48/24 + 48/18=4 hrs 40 min

3.B-100 )

Let the distance between Q & R be X km & the distance P & Q be (x+6) km

According to question

(x/20) – (x+6)/24= 32/60

X=94 km

Distance between P & Q = (94+6)= 100 km

4.B-180 km)

Let the total distance be X km

According to question

X/(14+4) + (X/2)/(14-4)=19

X=180 km

5.A-231 km)

Let the distance be X km

According to question

X/(16-5) –X/(16+5) =10

X= 231 km
