a) 36 seconds

b) 24 seconds

c) 48 seconds

d) 42 seconds

e) None of these

**Answers :**

**Directions (1 - 5): **

Length of train A = 20% of 1250 = 250 meters

Speed of train A = 180 * (80/360) = 40 km/h

Length of train B = 24% of 1250 = 300 meters

Speed of train B = 180 * (70/360) = 35 km/h

Length of train C = 12% of 1250 = 150 meters

Speed of train C = 180 * (50/360) = 25 km/h

Length of train D = 16% of 1250 = 200 meters

Speed of train D = 180 * (100/360) = 50 km/h

Length of train E = 28% of 1250 = 350 meters

Speed of train E = 180 * (60/360) = 30 km/h

**1) Answer: D**

Let the length and speed of train P is ‘x’ meters and ‘y’ km/h respectively.

According to the question:

x = y * 72 * (5/18)

x = 20y…………. (1)

(x + 250) = (40 – y) * 79.2 * (5/18)

From equation (1):

[20y + 250] = 22(40 – y)

20y + 250 = 880 – 22y

42y = 630

y = 15 km/h

x = 300 meters

Let time taken by train A to cross train P when both the trains are travelling in opposite direction = t

(250 + 300) = (40 + 15) * t * (5/18)

550 = 55 * t * (5/18)

t = 36 seconds

**2) Answer: A**

Let the length of platform and train P is ‘x’ meters.

According to the question:

(300 + x) = 35 * 72 * (5/18)

300 + x = 700

x = 400 meters

Now,

(300 + 400) = (63 – 35) * t * (5/18)

700 = 28 * t * (5/18)

t = 90 seconds

**3) Answer: B**

Let the speed of car = ‘x’ km/h

According to the question:

150 = (x – 25) * 27 * (5/18)

(x – 25) = 20

x = 45 km/h

Reduced speed of car = 80% of 45 = 36 km/h

**4) Answer: C**

Let the length of platform = ‘x’ meters

According to the question:

(200 + x) = 50 * 36 * (5/18)

(200 + x) = 500

x = 300 meters

Persons is running inside the train with speed 10 km/h and in opposite direction as that of train, then effective speed of person inside the train

= 50 – 10 = 40 km/h

Time taken by person to cross the train = (300/40) * (18/5) = 27 seconds

**5) Answer: A**

Let the speed of person = ‘x’ km/h

According to the question:

150 = (25 + x) * 13.5 * (5/18)

25 + x = 40

x = 15 km/h

Reduced speed of persons = x/3 = 5 km/h

Now,

350 = (30 + 5) * t * (5/18)

t = 36 seconds
