 Question 1
In a 500 m race, the ratio of the speeds of two contestants A and B is 3 : 4. A has a start of 140 m. Then, A wins by:
 A 60 m B 40 m C 20 m D 10 m
Question 1 Explanation:
To reach the winning post A will have to cover a distance of (500 - 140)m, i.e., 360 m. While A covers 3 m, B covers 4 m. While A covers 360 m, B covers ((4/3)x360)m= 480 m. Thus, when A reaches the winning post, B covers 480 m and therefore remains 20 m behind. A wins by 20 m.
 Question 2
In 100 m race, A covers the distance in 36 seconds and B in 45 seconds. In this race A beats B by:
 A 20 m B 25 m C 22.5 m D 9 m
Question 2 Explanation:
Distance covered by B in 9 sec. =((100/45)x9)m ==> 20 m. A beats B by 20 metres.
 Question 3
In a 200 metres race A beats B by 35 m or 7 seconds. A's time over the course is:
 A 40 sec B 47 sec C 33 sec D None of these
Question 3 Explanation:
B runs 35 m in 7 sec. B covers 200 m in ((7/35)x200) ==> 40 sec. B's time over the course = 40 sec. A's time over the course (40 - 7) sec = 33 sec.
 Question 4
In a 300 m race A beats B by 22.5 m or 6 seconds. B's time over the course is:
 A 86 sec B 76 sec C 80 sec D None of these
Question 4 Explanation:
B runs 45/2 m in 6 sec. B covers 300 m in (6 x (2/45)x 300)sec ==> 80 sec.
 Question 5
In a 100 m race, A can beat B by 25 m and B can beat C by 4 m. In the same race, A can beat C by:
 A 21 m B 26 m C 28 m D 29 m
Question 5 Explanation:
A : B = 100 : 75 B : C = 100 : 96. A : C =(A/B)x(B/C))==>(100/75)x(100/96)) ==>100/72= 100 : 72. A beats C by (100 - 72) m = 28 m.
