A. 9
B. 10
C. 12
D. 20
The right answer is B i.e, 10

Due to stoppages, it covers 9 km less.
Time taken to cover 9 km = {9/54 * 60}min = 10 min

A. 8 hours
B. 10 hours
C. 12 hours
D. 24 hours
Option C is the right answer.

Explanation :
A's 1 hour's work = 1/4;
(B + C)'s 1 hour's work = 1/3
A + C)'s 1 hour's work = 1/2
A + B + C)'s 1 hour's work -= [1/4 + 1/3] = 7/12
B's 1 hour's work = [7/12 - 1/2] = 1/12

So B alone will take 12 hours to do the work.

C. 70 km
D. 80 km
Answer: Option A i.e, 50 km

Explanation:

Let the actual distance traveled be x km.
Then, x/10 = x+20/ 14
14x = 10x + 200
4x = 200
x = 50km.
