Data Interpretation Quiz on Boats & Streams (SBI PO Mains Pattern)

Hello and welcome to exampundit. Here is a set of Data Interpretation Quiz on Boats & Streams based on the pattern of SBI PO Mains 2017.

In the question given below, the triangular chart depicts split up of, by distances,
the percentages of distances covered by the three boats A,B and C. The different
distances are given which are 1000km, 1500km and 2000km respectively. In the Bar
Graph Chart, the speeds of boats in still water and the speeds of the rivers are
given in kmph. Answer the following questions accordingly:

Q1) Calculate the total distance covered by boats A,B,C in the ‘Distance 1’ , ‘Distance 2’ and ‘Distance 3’ categories.
a)1000km,2560km,1570km
b)1250km,1313km,1750km
c)750km,880km,999km
d)1350km,1870km,3400km
e) none of these

Answer & Solutions

Option: B

Explanation:

Q2) If the Speed of the boat of A increases by 20%,then what is the difference between the time taken by boat A to travel upstream with the increased time and the given time in the ‘Distance 3’ region?
a)12.22hr
b)54.55hr
c)44.45hr
d)none of these
e)66.66hr

Answer & Solutions

Option: C

Explanation:

Q3) What is the ratio of time taken by Boat B in travelling downstream in ‘Distance 2’ region to the time taken by Boat B in travelling upstream in ‘Distance 3’ region?
a)13:15
b)8:9
c)17:71
d)5:11
e)51:15

Answer & Solutions

Option: C

Explanation: ( Time taken by Boat B downstream ) / ( Time taken by Boat B upstream )
= [ 750/(25+18) ] / [ 500/(25-18) ]
= 17.44/71.42
= 17/71.

Q4) Suppose another Boat D joins whose speed is 25% more than the speed of boat C, find the speed of the river in this case if the time taken to travel upstream and downstream is same(Distance upstream = Distance downstream = 1200km).
a)11.11kmph
b) 60kmph
c) 66.66kmph
d) 33.25kmph
e) cannot be determined

Answer & Solutions

Option: E

Explanation:

Q5) Total distance covered by Boat A in ‘Distance 1’ is how much percent less than the total distance travelled by Boat C in ‘Distance 3’ region?
a)33.45%
b)53%
c)77.89%
d)11.33%
e)29%
