Question: Inspired by the ‘Golden quadrilateral project’ UP Government recently accomplished a diamond triangular project. Under this project the state Government laid down 6 lane roads connecting three cities Ayodhya, Banaras and Chitrakoot, which are equally separated from each other i.e., in terms of geometry they form an equilateral triangle. Angad and Bajrang start simultaneously from Ayodhya and Banaras respectively, towards chitrakoot. When Anged covers 100 kms, Bajrang covers Chitrakoot. When Anged covers between Anged and Bajrang makes 90° angle with the road joining Banaras and Chitrakoot. When Bajrang reaches Chitrakoot,Anged is still 150 km away from Chitrakoot. What is the distance between Ayodhya and Banaras?

Answer:300 km

Question: The markets M_1,M_2,M_3… etc of Vyapaar city are lying besides the circular paths P_1,P_2,P_3,… etc. All the circular paths are concentric at centre ‘O’ and their distances are 1 km, 2 km, 3 km, … etc from the centre ‘O’ respectively. At the centre ‘O’ there is a “Khoob Khao” tiffin agency which supplies the tiffins to all the markets M_1,M_2,M_3,… etc. A tiffine carrier starts from ‘O’ goes directly east of the shop and then on reaching the circular path it moved 1 km in counter clock direction on it. After completing its I km distance on P_1 the carrier moves to P_2. Similarly 3 km on P_3 and 4 km on P_4 etc in counter clock direction moving redially from P_2 to P_3 and P_3 to P_4 etc and motion of the carrier continued in this manner till it reaches exactly in the east direction.
After reaching east of the shop it can’t move on further than the given distance on the current path. For how many markets can it supply its tiffins directly?


Answer:7


Question: The markets M_1,M_2,M_3… etc of Vyapaar city are lying besides the circular paths P_1,P_2,P_3,… etc. All the circular paths are concentric at centre ‘O’ and their distances are 1 km, 2 km, 3 km, … etc from the centre ‘O’ respectively. At the centre ‘O’ there is a “Khoob Khao” tiffin agency which supplies the tiffins to all the markets M_1,M_2,M_3,… etc. A tiffine carrier starts from ‘O’ goes directly east of the shop and then on reaching the circular path it moved 1 km in counter clock direction on it. After completing its I km distance on P_1 the carrier moves to P_2. Similarly 3 km on P_3 and 4 km on P_4 etc in counter clock direction moving redially from P_2 to P_3 and P_3 to P_4 etc and motion of the carrier continued in this manner till it reaches exactly in the east direction.
The total distance covered by the carriers in providing the tiffins from centre ‘O’ to the last point in one way only is:


Answer:30 km


Question: The markets M_1,M_2,M_3… etc of Vyapaar city are lying besides the circular paths P_1,P_2,P_3,… etc. All the circular paths are concentric at centre ‘O’ and their distances are 1 km, 2 km, 3 km, … etc from the centre ‘O’ respectively. At the centre ‘O’ there is a “Khoob Khao” tiffin agency which supplies the tiffins to all the markets M_1,M_2,M_3,… etc. A tiffine carrier starts from ‘O’ goes directly east of the shop and then on reaching the circular path it moved 1 km in counter clock direction on it. After completing its I km distance on P_1 the carrier moves to P_2. Similarly 3 km on P_3 and 4 km on P_4 etc in counter clock direction moving redially from P_2 to P_3 and P_3 to P_4 etc and motion of the carrier continued in this manner till it reaches exactly in the east direction.
52- The ratio of distance covered on the circular path P_2 to that on the last path, where the carrier reaches directly eastward of its shop is:


Answer:1:1


Question: A train eniers into a tunnel AB at A and exits at B. A jackal is sitting at O in another by passing tunnel AOB, which is conneted to AB at A and B. where OA is perpendicular to OB.A cat is sitting at P inside the tunnel AB making the shortest possible distance between O and P. such that AO: PB=30:32 When a train before entering into the tunnel AB makes a whistle (or siren) somewhere before A, the jackal and cat run towards A, they meet with accident (with the train) at the entrance A. Further if the cat moves towards B instead of A it again meets with accident at the exit of the tunnel by the same train coming from the same direction.

Answer:5:3
