**SSC CGL Quantitative Aptitude: Sample Questions**

**Q1. A thief is noticed by a policeman from a distance of 200 m. The thief starts running and the policeman chases him. The thief and the policeman run at the rate of 10 km and 11 km per hour respectively. What is the distance between them after 6 minutes?**

(a) 50 meters

(b) 100 meters

(c) 120 meters

(d) None of above

**Answer: Option B**

**Explanation:**

Relative speed of the thief and policeman = (11 – 10) km/hr = 1 km/hr

Distance covered in 6 minutes = 1/60∗6=1/10=100meters

So the distance between them after 6 minutes = 200 – 100

= 100 meters

**Q2. A man in a train notices that he can count 41 telephone posts in one minute. If they are known to be 50 metres apart, then at what speed is the train travelling?**

(a) 100 Km/hr

(b) 110 Km/Hr

(c) 120 Km/Hr

(d) 150 Km/Hr

**Answer: Option C**

**Explanation:**

Number of gaps between 41 poles = 40

So the total distance between 41 poles = 40*50

= 2000 meter = 2 km

In 1 minute train is moving 2 km/minute.

Speed in hour = 2*60 = 120 km/hour
