Delhi ---------------- Chandigarh ---------------- shimla Distance 3x/4 km x km Speed 3y/2 kmph y kmph Time (3x/4)/(3y/2) hrs = 3x/2y hrs x/y hrs average speed = (total distance)/(total time) 49 = (x + 3x/4)/(x/2y + x/y) = (7x/4)/(3x/2y) = 7y/6 49 = 7y/6 --- y = 42 kmph --- (ANS)

c) Since it is a relay race, all the runners ran the same distance. Hence for a same distance, (ratio of times) = 1/(ratio of speeds). Hence ratio of times taken by B t& D = 18 : 16 = 9 : 8.

n = 17. This is quite tricky. 1 to n natural numbers can be even number of numbers or odd number of numbers. ex - 1 2 3 4 5 or 1 2 3 4 5 6 so here n could be 5 or 6. We don't know hence we consider both the cases. n ---> even . Then there will be n/2 even and n/2 odd numbers in list of n numbers. Now we need observe that when we try to arrange odd number of numbers in between two even or odd numbers we end up having consecutive even and odd number always. So, number of ways will be n/2! * n/2! .Now lets try to equate it to 72. We get nothing as n/2! * n/2! is a perfect square and 72 is not. n -- > odd. Then we will have (n+1)/2 odd numbers and (n-1)/2 even numbers in the list of n numbers. we apply the same logic here too:- (n-1)/2 ! * (n+1)/2 ! = 72 (n^2 - 1)/4 = 72 ---- > n = 17. Hence there are 17 numbers 1 2 3 .... 17. Let me know if you need more explanation.
