Mr. Singh, who lives in a village was a cycling enthusiast, so he decided to go to town to watch a movie. He travels by his cycle at a constant speed for 2 hours, but suddenly his cycle got the puncture. It took Mr. Singh 10 minutes to change the tire. Now Singh travels at 30 km/hr for the rest of his journey. Mr. Singh reaches for the movie 30 minutes late. He thought if he does not get the puncher than he will be late by just 15 minutes.

How much distance Mr. Singh traveled?

Not enough information is given to have only 1 answer.
For instance, if he only needed another 10 km, then he would get the puncture when the movie started.
To travel that 10 km in only 15 minutes means cycling at 40 km/hr. This would be his original speed for the previous 2 hours as well.
Total time = 2 hr 15 min @ 40 km/hr = 90 km total
If he needed another 15 km, his original speed would have been 36 km/hr and total distance 87 km.
