# Moderate Time, Speed & Distance Solved QuestionAptitude Discussion

 Q. In a kilometer race, If Abhishek gives Bharti a 40 m start, Abhishek wins by 19 sec. But if Abhishek gives Bharti a 30 sec start, Bharti wins by 40 m. Find the time taken by Bharti to run 5,000 m?
 ✖ A. 150 sec ✖ B. 450 sec ✔ C. 750 sec ✖ D. 825 sec

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

If Abhishek takes $x$ seconds and Bharti takes $y$ seconds to run 1 km, then:

$⇒ y=150$ sec and $x=125$ sec

$x+19=\dfrac{960y}{1000}\text{ and }$

$\dfrac{960x}{1000}+30=y$

$⇒ y=150$ sec and $x=125$ sec

Answer $=\dfrac{150}{1000}\times 500$

750 sec
