Study the following information carefully and answer the questions that follow.

A country has the following types of traffic signals.

- 3 green lights = go at 60 kmph speed
- 2 green lights = go at 40 kmph speed
- 1 green light = go at 20 kmph speed
- 3 red lights = stop
- 2 red lights = turn left
- 1 red light = turn right

A person starts driving from a point in West direction and he encounters the following traffic signals:

- Starting point – 1 green light;
- After 15 minutes, 1st signal – 2 red & 2 green lights;
- After 24 minutes, 2nd signal – 1 red & 3 green lights;
- After 45 minutes, 3rd signal – 1 red & 2 green lights;
- After 18 minutes, 4th signal – 3 red lights;

#### Q-14) Find the total distance he covered up to the last signal.

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(e)

**Explanation:**

Starting in West direction: 1 green light means 20 km/hr

So 15 minutes at 20km/hr, means covers $ 15/60$ x 20 = 5 km

Next, 2 red & 2 green lights, means turn left and 24 minutes at 40 km/hr

So now distance covered = $24/60$ x 40 = 16 km

Now for next 45 minutes, 1 red & 3 green lights, means turned right and drove at 60 km/hr,

so covered$ 45/60$ x 60 = 45 Km

Next – 1 red & 2 green lights, turned right and 18 minutes at 40 km/hr

So covered = $18/60$ x 40 = 12 km. Next 3 red lights so stopped

So total distance = 5+16+45+12 = 78 km
