= (1000 * 800)/900 = 8000/9 = 888.88 m.

B can give C = 1000 - 888.88 = 111.12 m.

Explanation:

A can give B (5 min - 4 1/2 min) = 30 sec start.

The distance covered by B in 5 min = 1000 m.

Distance covered in 30 sec = (1000 * 30)/300 = 100 m.

A can give B 100m start.

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

When A runs 1000 m, B runs 900 m and when B runs 800 m, C runs 700 m.

When B runs 900 m, distance that C runs = (900 * 700)/800 = 6300/8 = 787.5 m.

In a race of 1000 m, A beats C by (1000 - 787.5) = 212.5 m to C.

In a race of 600 m, the number of meters by which A beats C = (600 * 212.5)/1000 = 127.5 m.

5. In a game of billiards, A can give B 20 points in 60 and he can give C 30 points in 60. How many points can B give C in a game of 100?

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

A scores 60 while B score 40 and C scores 30.

The number of points that C scores when B scores 100 = (100 * 30)/40 = 25 * 3 = 75.

In a game of 100 points, B gives (100 - 75) = 25 points to C.
