Discussion

  1. If a train runs at 5/6 of its original speed, then it reaches the station 10 min late. Then find out the usual time taken by train to cover the distance.
    1. 40 min
    2. 45 min
    3. 50 min
    4. 55 min
  1. Correct Option: C

    Let the actual speed of train be x and actual time taken be y

    Then new speed of train = 5x/6

    Therefore, new time taken = 6y/5 (as distance is same in both case)

    Given, 6y/5 - y = 1/6 hr , therefore actual time = 50 min
