Time and Distance Questions for IBPS PO and SSC CGL
Basic Concepts :
1) When two bodies are moving around a circular track/ straight line track,
The relative motion of two bodies moving around in the same direction is taken as
= S_{1} – S_{2}
Also, when bodies are moving in opposite direction, then relative speed
= S_{1} + S_{2}
2) Trains are special case in the concept of speed, time and distance. The basic relation is same as,
Speed * time= distance.
a) When a train is crossing a moving object, the speed has to be taken as relative speed of the train with respect to the object.
b) The distance to be covered while crossing an object whenever a train crosses an object will be equal to
Length of train + Length of the object
c) Time taken by the train to cross a pole, man etc. by a train,
= Length of train /Speed of train.
3) A monkey or man tries to climb a pole ‘x’ m high. In ‘t’ time he climbs ‘y’ m but slips down ‘z’ m. How much time will be required by him to reach the top?
Reqd. time = [(ht. of pole – slipped distance)/(climbed distance – slipped distance)]*t
= [(xz)/(yz)]*t
4) Suppose a car goes from A to B at an average speed S_{1} and then comes back from B to A an average speed of S_{2}. If you have to find the average speed of the whole journey, then average speed is given by,
Average speed = 2S_{1} *S_{2}/ (S_{1} +S_{2})
Average speed= 2* products of speeds/ sum of speeds.

I was not able to solve 10th question quickly but i saw your method..
Your method is very effective. Thanks.
Sir please kindly solved
Q.1. A sells an item to B at a loss of 20% and B
sell it to C at a loss of 25%. If C Rs. 6000 than what is the
original price?
Q.2. The population of a city is 300000. Out of these there are
180000 males. 50% population are literate. If 70% males are literate, what is
the number of literate females?
Q.3. Amit’s annual income is Rs. 3500. He pays no income tax on
allowances. On the remainder he pays Rs. 256 as income tax at 4%. What amount
does he get as allowances?
Q.1. A sells an item to B at a loss of 20% and B sell it to C at a loss of 25%. If C Rs. 6000 than what is the original price?
Let original price be P
P x 0.8 x 0.75 = 6000
P = 10000 Rs
Q.2. The population of a city is 300000. Out of these there are 180000 males. 50% population are literate. If 70% males are literate, what is the number of literate females?
Total population = 300000
Total males = 180000
Total females = 300000 – 180000 = 120000
Total literate = 50 % of 300000 = 150000
Male literate = 70 % of 180000 = 126000
Female literate = 150000 126000 = 24000
Illiterate female = 120000 – 24000 = 96000
Q.3. Amit’s annual income is Rs. 3500. He pays no income tax on allowances. On the remainder he pays Rs. 256 as income tax at 4%. What amount does he get as allowances?
Let Remainder be R
Tax = 4 % of Remainder = 0.04 x R = 256
R = 6400
From here, questions is not framed correctly. So answer can’t be justified
