a) 544 km
b) 444 km
c) 333 km
d) 244 km
e) 504 km
Solutions:
1. C) Required Average = [(x × 75/100 × 70/100)/(x × 120/100)] × 100 = 43.75%
2. A) Required Ratio = 15/100 × 120 : 19/70 × 100 = 63 : 95
3. E) Data Inadequate
4. D) Required Difference = 1984/124 × 100 – 1886/82 × 100 = 1600 – 2300 = 700 lakhs
5. D) In 2015 for company P,
E : I =( 5 : 6 )×4= 20 : 24
In 2015 for company Q,
E : I = (4 : 5 )×5= 20 : 25
profit of company P in 2016= 4 × 140/100 = 5.6
profit of company Q in 2016= 5 × 68/100 = 3.4
Ratio of income of company P and company Q=25.6 : 23.4=128 : 117 
6. C) Total time = 630/21 = 30 hr
Time taken by car in first half = 30/10 × 3 = 9hr
Speed of car in first half = 315/9 = 35 km
7. D) time taken by train in first half of journey=375/150=2.5 hr.
remaining time= 8- 2.5 =5.5 hr,
Required average speed =375/5.5=68.18 km/hr
8. B) since first half and second half is same hence and let speed of bike to cover the second half of journey ,hence average speed
=> 2xy/(x + y) = 53.33 => (2 × 60 × y)/(60 + y) = 53.33 => y = 48
now total distance= 2 ×48×5=480 km
9. A) total time taken by jeep=540/45=12 hr.
now,
T1 + T2 = 12 => 270/S1 + 270/30 = 12 => S1 = 90
Speed during the first half of the journey = 90 km/hr.
10. A) Average distance covered by all the vehicles = (750 + 630 + 560 + 540 + 240)/5 = 544km
