The distance between two stations A and B is 440 km. A train starts at 4 p.m. from A and move towards B at an average speed of 40 km/hr. Another train starts B at 5 p.m. and moves towards A at an average speed of 60 km/hr. How far from A will the two trains meet and at what time?

Option: 1

200,8 p.m.

Option: 2

300,9 p.m.

Option: 3

200,9 p.m.

Option: 4

300,8 p.m.

The sum of the distances covered by both trains should be equal to the total distance between the stations A and B: 40t+60(t−1)=44040t + 60(t - 1) = 44040t+60(t−1)=440


So, the trains will meet 5 hours after Train A starts from A.

Train A starts at 4 p.m. so 5 hours from 4 p.m. is 4 p.m. + 5 hours = 9 p.m.

The two trains will meet 200 km from A at 9 p.m.

Option 3: 200, 9 p.m.

PQ is a tunnel. A dog sits at the distance of 5/ 11 of PQ from P. The train whistle coming from any end of the tunnel would make the dog run. If a train approaches P and dog runs towards P the train would hit the dog at P. If the dog runs towards Q instead, it would hit the dog at Q. Find ratio of speed of train and dog?


Option: 1


Option: 2


Option: 3


Option: 4


Option 3 - 11:1

########            P____5_____¶______6_____Q

"¶" is the dog located inside the tunnel PQ and #####... is a train approaching to it. 

Case 1 - Dog decides to reach point P 

Distance covered by Dog - 5 parts and train reaches at P

Case 2 - Dog decides to run towards point Q

At the time train reaches to point P, the dog covers 5 parts in direction of Q. Now the left out part covered by dog will be 1 part towards Q .

At the time dog covers 1 part and reaches Q, train covers whole 11 parts of tunnel and reaches from P to Q. 

So, 11 part of train is eual to the 1 part covered by the dog to reach Q. 

Ratio of their speeds - Train:Dog = 11:1
