Total Distance = 48 x (50/60) km.
= 40 km
Required speed = [40 / (40/60)] km.Correct Option: C
Total Distance = 48 x (50/60) km.
= 40 km
Required speed = [40 / (40/60)] km.
= (40 x 60 )/ 40 km/hr.
= 60 km/hr.

Let the distance be y km.
From question
y/3  y/3.75 = 1/2Correct Option: C
Let the distance be y km.
From question
y/3  y/3.75 = 1/2
⇒ (3.75y  3y) / (3 x 3.75) = 1/2
⇒ 1.5y= 3 x 3.75
∴ y = ( 3 x 3.75 ) / 1.5
= 7.5 km.

Total time taken = (3/10 + 3/20 + 3/30 + 3/60) hrs.
= 3/5 hrs.
Correct Option: B
Total time taken = (3/10 + 3/20 + 3/30 + 3/60) hrs.
= 3/5 hrs.
∴ Average speed = {12 / (3 / 5)} km/hr.
= (12 x 5 ) / 3 km/hr.
= 20 km/hr.

Let the length of total journey be y km.
From question
( y/2 x 1/40 ) + ( y/2 x 1/60) = 8Correct Option: C
Let the length of total journey be y km.
From question
( y/2 x 1/40 ) + ( y/2 x 1/60) = 8
⇒ y/80 + y/120 = 8
⇒ 3y + 2y = 1920
∴ y = 384 km.
