1. Raman covers 1 km in 8 min while suman covers the same distance in 10 min. By what distance does Raman beat Suman ?
1. 150 m
2. 65 m
3. 190 m
4. 200 m

1. Raman covers 1 km in 8 min and suman cover 1 km in 10 min.
If they starts together, then distance covered by suman in 8 min
= (1000/10) x 8 = 800 m

##### Correct Option: D

Raman covers 1 km in 8 min
and suman cover 1 km in 10 min.
If they starts together, then distance covered by suman in 8 min
= (1000/10) x 8 = 800 m
∴ Raman will beat suman by (1000 - 800 ) m = 200 m

1. In a race of 150 m, A gives B a start of 20 m. What distance will be covered by B ?
1. 100 m
2. 130 m
3. 170 m
4. 160 m

1. Required distance = (150 - 20) m

##### Correct Option: B

Required distance = (150 - 20) m = 130 m

1. In a race, P gives Q a start of 25 m making length of race for Q a distance of 175 m. Find the total length of race. ?
1. 250 m
2. 200 m
3. 225 m
4. 235 m

1. Required length = (175 + 25)m

##### Correct Option: B

Required length = (175 + 25)m = 200 m

1. In a 800 m race, A gives some start to B and this makes the length of race for B 725 m. What start does B get from A?
1. 22 m
2. 35 m
3. 45 m
4. 75 m

1. Start given by A to B = (800 - 725)m

##### Correct Option: D

Start given by A to B = (800 - 725)m = 75 m

1. In a game of 100 points, A scores 100 points while B scores only 65 points. In this game, how much points can A give to B?
1. 45
2. 35
3. 25
4. 55

1. Score of A = 100 points
Score of B = 65 points
∴ A can give (100 - 65 ) points

##### Correct Option: B

Score of A = 100 points
Score of B = 65 points
∴ A can give (100 - 65 ) = 35 points to B.
