What is the speed of the boat in still water? 6 Km/h 8 Km/h 3 Km/h 10 Km/h 6. If a boat goes 7 Km upstream in 42 minutes and the speed of the stream is 3 Km/h, then the speed of the boat in still water is: 17 Km/h 15 Km/h 13 Km/h 19 Km/h 7. A boat takes 90 minutes less to travel 36 miles downstream than to travel the same distance upstream. If the speed of the boat in still water is 10 m/h, the speed of the stream is: 3 m/h 4 m/h 5 m/h 2 m/h 8. A boat can travel with a speed of 13 Km/h in still water. If the speed of the stream is 4 Km/h, find the time taken by the boat to go 68 Km downstream. 6 hours 7 hours 10 hours 4 hours 9. The speed of a boat in still water is 10 Km/h. If it can travel 30 Km downstream and comes back in a total of 4 hours 30 minutes. Ihe speed of the stream is: 7 8 5 10 10. A man’s speed with the current is 15 Km/h and the speed of the current is 2.5 Km/h. The man’s Speed against the current is: 12 Km/h 10 Km/h 7 Km/h 15 Km/h 11. A boat covers a certain distance downstream in one hour, while it comes back in 1.5 hours. If the speed of the stream be 3 Km/h, what is the speed of the boat in still water? 18 Km/h 20 Km/h 17 Km/h 15 Km/h 12. lf a man rows at the rate of 5 Km/h in still water and his rate against the current is 3.5 Km/h, then the man’s rate along the current is: 5 Km/h 7.5 Km/h 6.5 Km/h 8 Km/h 13. A man takes twice as long to row a distance against the stream as to row the same distance in favour of the stream. The ratio of the speed of the boat and the stream is: 4:5 2:1 3:1 3:2 14. A man rows to a place 48 km-distance and back in 14 hours. He finds that he can row 4 Km with the stream in the same time as 3 Km against the stream. The rate of the stream is 4 Km/h 3 Km/h 1 Km/h 5 Km/h 15. A man can row at 15 Km/h in still water. If the veracity of current is one Km/h and it takes him one hours to row a place and come back, how far is the place? 4.5 Km 3.5 Km 2.4 Km 5 Km 16. A man rows downstream 32 Km and 14 Km upstream. If he takes 6 hours to cover each distance, then the velocity of the current is? 2.5 Km/r 2 Km/h 1 Km/h 1.5 Km/h 17. A man can row upstream at 8 km/hr and downstream at 13 km/hr.
