# CAT 2019 Quant Question with Solution 27

Question:
One can use three different transports which move at 10, 20, and 30 kmph, respectively. To reach from A to B, Amal took each mode of transport 1/3 of his total journey time, while Bimal took each mode of transport 1/3 of the total distance. The percentage by which Bimal’s travel time exceeds Amal’s travel time is nearest to

1. 21
2. 22
3. 20
4. 19

Let the total journey time taken by Amal be 3t hours.

Therefore, the total distance = 10t + 20t + 30t = 60t kms

Bimal took each mode of transport 1/3 of the total distance.

Therefore, total time taken by him = $\frac{20t}{10}+\frac{20t}{20}+\frac{20t}{30}=\frac{11t}{3}\ hours$

The percentage by which Bimal’s travel time exceeds Amal’s travel time $\left( \frac{\left( 11/3 \right)t-3t}{3t} \right)\times 100=22.22%$
