Answer : 10 km/hr
Explanation :
Explanation :
Man's rate in still water = (15  2.5) km/hr = 12.5 km/hr.
Man's rate against the current = (12.5  2.5) km/hr = 10 km/hr.

1)  20 km/hr  2)  22 km/hr 
3)  24 km/hr  4)  28 km/hr 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 22 km/hr
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let the speed of the man in still water be x km/hr. then,
km/hr.
10/(x2) + 10/(x+2) = 55/60
or x = 22 km/hr

Q536. 

1)  17 kg  2)  20 kg 
3)  26 kg  4)  31 kg 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 31 kg
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let A, B, C represent their respective weights. Then, we have:
A + B + C = (45 x 3) = 135 .... (i)
A + B = (40 x 2) = 80 .... (ii)
B + C = (43 x 2) = 86 ....(iii)
Adding (ii) and (iii), we get: A + 2B + C = 166 .... (iv)
Subtracting (i) from (iv), we get : B = 31.
B's weight = 31 kg.

Q537. 

1)  3500  2)  4000 
3)  4050  4)  5000 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 4000
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let P, Q and R represent their respective monthly incomes. Then, we have:
P + Q = (5050 x 2) = 10100 .... (i)
Q + R = (6250 x 2) = 12500 .... (ii)
P + R = (5200 x 2) = 10400 .... (iii)
Adding (i), (ii) and (iii), we get: 2(P + Q + R) = 33000 or P + Q + R = 16500 .... (iv)
Subtracting (ii) from (iv), we get P = 4000.
P's monthly income = Rs. 4000.

Explanation :
Let the average age of the whole team by x years.
Then,11x  (26 + 29) = 9(x 1)
or 11x  9x = 46
or 2x = 46
or x = 23.
So, average age of the team is 23 years.
