Naresh could either walk or drive to office. The time taken to walk to the office is 14 times the driving time. One day, his wife took the car making him walk to office. After walking 1 km, he reached a temple when his wife called to say that he can now take the car. Veerbhadhran figured that continuing to walk to the office will take half as long as walking back home and then driving to the office. Calculate the distance between the temple and the office in KMs?

1 2/7 kms

If x is speed of walking and y is distance between temple & office, then
y/x= 1/x + (y+1)/8x

solving it, we get
x=9/7=1 2/7 kms

Arnav and Sarthak decided to take their respective car out of the garage and race. None of them cheated and they both stood at the start time and decided to cover a distance in full throttle. The first to reach the mark was to be declared the winner.

Upon reaching the finishing mark, they found out that Arnav's car is 1.2 times faster than Sarthak's. Now, Sarthak had reached the mark about 1 minute and 30 seconds later than Arnav. Sarthak's car reached the mark at 60 kmph on average.
