Time Distance

A train can travel 50% faster than a car. Both start from point A at the same time and reach point B, 75 kms away from A at the same time. On the way, however, the train lost about 12.5 minutes while stopping at the stations. The speed of the car is:

  1. 100 kmph
  2. 110 kmph
  3. 120 kmph
  4. 130 kmph


Let the speed of car be x kmph.

Therefore, the speed of train = 1.5x kmph

Distance traveled by train and car is same. Time difference is 12.5 minutes.

(75/x) - (75/1.5x) = (125/10x60)

x = 120

The correct option is C.
