61). A boat can travel 4.2 km upstream in 14 minutes. If the respective ratio of speed of the boat in still water and speed of the stream is 7 : 1. How much time will the boat take to cover 17.6 km downstream ? (in minutes)
 A). 52 B). 44 C). 48 D). 36
62). A tank has 3 inlets X, Y and Z and 1 outlet. P, Y fills the empty tank in 3 times the time taken by Z to fill the empty tank completely. X fills the empty tank completely in 1.5 times the time taken by Y to fill the empty tank completely. Also, Z fills the empty tank completely in half the time taken by P to empty the full tank completely. If the time taken to fill the empty tank completely when all of them are opened simultaneously is $$\Large 3 \frac{15}{19}$$ hours. how much time (in hours) will P take to empty the full tank completely ?
 A). $$\Large 6 \frac{1}{2}$$ B). 6 C). 8 D). 4

 A). 3 kmph B). 2 kmph C). 2.5 kmph D). 4 kmph
65). Boat A travels upstream from point X to point Y in 2 hours more than the time taken by Boat B to travel downstream from point Y to point Z. The distance between X and Y is 40 km and that distance between Y and Z is 24 km. The speed of Boat B in still water is 10 km/h and the speed of Boat A in still water is equal to the speed of Boat B downstream. What is the speed of Boat A in still water? (Consider the speed of the current to be the same).
 A). 20 km/h B). 10 km/h C). 12 km/h D). 14 km/h

66). A boat takes 3 hours less time in rowing from point X to point Y in downstream than that in rowing from point Y to point Z in upstream. The distance between X and Y is 20 km which is half of the distance between Y and Z. Speed of boat B in still water is 10 kmph. The speed of boat A in still water is equal to the rate upstream of boat B. What is the speed of boat A in still water? (in kmph).
 A). 12 B). 8 C). 10 D). 11
67). Some students planned a picnic. The budget for food was Rs. 500. But, 5 of them failed to go and thus the cost of food for each member increased by Rs. 5. How many students attended the picnic ?
 A). 15 B). 20 C). 25 D). 30
