AVG SPEED = Total Distance / Total Time

AVG Speed = 240 km/hr
Total Distance = 4 Km
Total Time = 2/120 + 2/X (assume X is the speed for next 2 KM)

So we have
240 = 4/(2/120 + 2/X)
60 = 1/(2/120 + 2/X)
1+120/X = 1

which is impossible...

So answer is Impossible

he can't acheive average speed of 240 km/h for entire course.
because for avergae speed of 240 km/h for entire course he should complete his course in one minute but he already spent 1 minute for first two km.

so Answer is IMPOSSIBLE

Jim keeps all his ties in a drawer.

He has 7 yellow, 10 blue, 9 red, 20 green and 3 purple colored ties.

He does not sort and keep them.

There is a power outage and Jim needs 2 ties of the same color.

Since he cannot see which color he is picking up from the drawer, how many ties does Jim have to take to be sure that he has at least 2 ties of the same color?

Eeshan learnt how to ride a horse recently. Just to test his skills, he rode the horse from his home till a mine which he covered in three minutes and returned back home from the same path only this time he took four minutes. The reason was that while riding away from home, he was supported by wind however while riding back, he was riding against the wind.

How fast do you think he could have rode a mile if there was no wind ?
