Hello <geniuskids>

Believe in yourself and learn to instil more confidence in your work Smile . There are instances where <Answerkey> provided can be somewhat incorrect, as what you have encountered in Q7. Your answer of A,B and D looks good. Smile


Following is my worked solution to Q27:

Given time taken by both A and B, time ratio can be expressed and we can apply <Common Distance> method, where speed ratio is reverse / inverse of time ratio.

tA : tB
25 : 20
5 : 4

sA : sB
4 : 5

Given speed difference (B-A) of 30 m/min,
sB - sA = 30
5u - 4u = 30
1u --> 30

sA = 4u --> 4 × 30 = 120

Hence, d(SL) = 120 × 25 = 3000m

========

Trust this helps.

Do let me know again if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
