# Races and Games Aptitude Test Paper 1

1) In a kilometer race, A beats B by 40 meters or by 5 seconds. What is the time taken by A over the course?

1. 1 minute 57 seconds.
2. 2 minutes.
3. 1.5 minutes.
4. None of these.

Explanation:

A runs 1km = 1000 m, it means B runs 1000 - 40 = 960 meters
Time is taken by B for 40 meters = 5 seconds
Time is taken by B for 960 meters = × 960=120 seconds

The time in which B covered 960 meters, A has covered 1000 meters.
∴ A's time over the course = 120 seconds
= 2 minutes

2) In a race of 600 m, A can beat B by 50 m, and in another race of 500 m, B can beat C by 60 m. Then by how many meters will A beat C in a race of 400 meters?

1. 77 m

2. 77 m
3. 70 m
4. None of these.

Explanation:

When A runs 600 m,
Then B runs (600 - 50) = 550 m
Now, When B runs 500 m,
Then C runs (500 - 60) = 440 m
When B runs 550 m then C runs = = 484 m

When A runs 600 m then C runs 484 m,

Now in a 400 meters race, when A runs 400 runs, C will run: ∴ A beats C in a 400 m race by 3) In a 500 m race, the ratio of the speeds of two participants A and B is 3: 4. A has a start of 140 m. Then, A wins by

1. 60 m
2. 40 m
3. 20 m
4. 10 m

Explanation:

To reach the winning point, A has to cover a distance of
(500 - 140) = 360 m
According to the question
When A covers 3 m, then B covers 4 m
And when A covers 360 m, then B covers Thus, when A reaches the winning point, B covers 480 m and remains 20 m behind.
Therefore A wins from B by 20 m.

4) A can run 22.5 m while B runs 25 m. In a one kilometer race, B beats A by

1. 100 m
2. 111 1/9 m
3. 25 m
4. 50 m

Explanation:

When B runs 25 m, A runs m

When B runs 1000 m, A runs ∴ B beats A by 100 m.

Solution 2:

When B runs 25 m, A runs m

But ATQ, B has to cover 1000 m

If we multiply B = 25 by 40 then we get 1000 m

Then A covers * 40 = 45*20 = 900 m

Therefore, B beats A by 100 m

5) A and B take part in a 100 m race. A runs at 5 km per hour. A gives B a start of 8 m and still beats him by 8 seconds. The speed of B is

1. 5.15 km/hr
2. 4.14 km/hr
3. 4.25 km/hr
4. 4.41 km/hr
