    Eg:- The thief flashed a big(size) sharp(shape) knife

    and asked the cashier to fill the black leather bag with money.

    Eg:- They are looking for a dark2colourangry3emotiontall1sizehandsome4quality man – wrong

    Eg:- They are looking for a tall dark angry handsome man – correct

    Rule:- If any adjective has less than three vowels then

    we must add ‘er’ or ‘est’ in order to make a degree.

    Clever Cleverer Cleverest
    Fast Faster Fastest
    Slow Slower Slowest
    Big Bigger Biggest

    Note :-  Those adjectives which do not have any vowel are also included in above rule.

    Shy Shier Shiest
    Dry Drier Driest

    Note:- Honest is an exception as it gives silent sound of vowel so it does not follow above rule.

    Honest More honest Most honest

    Rule:- If any adjective contains three or more than

    three vowel then more/most will be used for those adjectives.

    Intelligent More intelligent Most intelligent
    Beautiful More beautiful Most beautiful
    Horrible More horrible Most horrible

    Note:- No degree is used for colour.

    Rule:-  Words such as unique, perfect, major, minor,

    complete, final, full, whole – gives superlative sense.

    So, no need to put degree with them.

    Rule:-  Many nouns are a part of compound adjectives and they never come in plural form.

    Eg:-  I delivered a two-hours lecture.- wrong.

            I delivered a two-hour lecture.  – correct.

    Eg:-  He delivered me two hundred-rupees notes. -wrong.

           He delivered me two hundred-rupee notes.- correct

    Rule:- If a noun works as an adjective, it cannot be in plural form.

       Eg:- Lasers are indispensable tools for delicate eyes surgery. – wrong

               Lasers are indispensable tools for delicate eye surgery. – correct

    In any organization the efficiency of different person is different; the management has to take proper note of it before distributing the task to subordinates. We discuss all such Problems under the heading Time and work.

    • When time is constant (T = Constant)                                                          


      Person ‘P’ is directly proportional to work. It means mare work requires more number of persons.

    • When work is constant (w = Constant)


    Work ‘W’ is proportional to Time it means more work requires more time.

    • When work is constant.(W= Constant)


    Number of persons ‘P’ is inversely proportional to time. It means more person will takes less time.

    with the above three relations between P, T and W we find that      

    4 5                                                                                                       

    Practice questions on Time and Work


    Let a Person A finish a work in X days then

    One day work of A is =1/X

    And a person B can do a work in y days then

    One day work of B is =1/Y

    If both A and B are working together then

    One day work is =1/X +1/Y = (X+Y)/XY

    Now time taken by A and B to complete the whole work =XY/(X+Y)

    Work and Wages:

    A can do a certain piece of work in X days and B in Y days both of them work together to do the work. If the total paid of the work is Rs. M then each would get –

    Ratio of time taken is =X:Y

    As we know that –

      Efficiency   α   1/Time

    So the ratio of efficiency  = Y:X

    Here money will divide to according to their efficiency then

    A’s share =X/(X+Y)

    And B’s share = X/(X+Y)


    Pipes are connected to a tank or cistern and are used to fill or empty the tank.

    Inlet Pipe: A pipe used to fill the tank or cistern is known as Inlet Pipe.

    Outlet Pipe: A pipe used to empty the tank or cistern is known as Outlet Pipe

    If a inlet A can fill the tank in X hours.

       The part of the tank filled in 1 hour = 1/x

       And inlet B can fill the tank in Y hours

       The part of tank filled in 1 hour =1/Y

    If both pipes are opened together then part filled in 1 hour = 1/X + 1/y

    Rule: If a pipe fills a tank in  X hours and another fills the same tank in Y hours , but a third empties the full tank in Z hours and all of them are opened together, the net part filled in 1 hour is

    =  1/X+1/Y-1/Z

    So time taken to fill the tank by all three

    =  (XYZ)/(XY-YZ-XZ)

    Basic formulae for speed time and distance notes

    Speed Time and Distance Notes

    SPEED:-  Distance travelled by any body w.r.t. Time is known as speed.
    Pictorial diagram to remember these formulae  
    Trick to remember Formulas

    Conversion of Units:-
    1 km/hr = 5/18 m/s
    X km/s = (5 /18) X m/s
    1 m/s    = 18/5 km/ hr
     X km/hr = ( 18/5) km/hr

    Basic Rules :-

    Basics Rule

    figure: Speed Time and Distance Notes relations while one quantity is constant where k is constant.

    Example:- A car travels at 60 km/hr for the first 3 hrs & then 80 km/hr for the next 3 hrs. Find the      ratio of distance travelled
    d1/d2=s1/s2= 60/80 = ¾

    Relative Speed:Relative speed is the speed when one moving body relative to another moving body.when both bodies are moving in same direction the speeds are subtracted and when both bodies are moving in opposite  direction the speeds are add up.
    Case 1:
    Two bodies are moving in opposite directions at speed s1 & s2 respectively. The relative speed is defined as sr=s1+s2
    Case 2:
    Two bodies are moving in same directions at speed s1 & s2 respectively. The relative speed is defined as sr= s1s2

    Average speed:-
    The average speed of an object is the total distance traveled by the object divided by the elapsed time to cover that distance.
     Average speed = Total Distance / Total Time

    Meeting Point:-
     M.p. = Initial distance between two bodies/Their relative speed
    Rule:- A and B moving towards each other from two end  of the journey points , take time in the ratio b:a after crossing to reach  opposite end the, ratio of speed
    Sa/Sb =(b/a)^1/2

    Speed = Distance/Time
    When the train is crossing a moving object, the speed has to be taken as the relative speed of the train with respect to the object.
    sr=s1+s2 or  sr= s1s2
    The distance to be covered when crossing an object, whenever trains crosses an object will be equal to: Length of the train + Length of the object ( e.g. Train,Pole,Platform or Man)

    Upstream:- If a person or boat moves against the stream, it is called upstream.
    Downstream:- If a person or boat moves with the stream, it is called downstream.
    Assumption:-  When we simply say speed of the person or boat ,it usually means speed in still water.  Let,
    B = Velocity of the boat in still water
    S = Velocity of the stream.

    UpstreamWhile moving in upstream

    Speed (U) =  (B – S) Km/hr

    Downstream: In case of downstream

    Speed (D) =  (B + S) Km/hr
    Speed of boat in still water = ½ [  D+U ]
    Speed of the stream = ½ [ D-U ]

    Races: A contest of speed in running, riding, driving, sailing or rowing is called a race.
    Race Course: The ground or path on which contests are made is called a race course.
    Starting Point: The point from which a race begins is known as a starting point.
    Winning Point or Goal: The point set to bound a race is called a winning point or a goal.
    Dead Heat Race: If all the persons contesting a race reach the goal exactly at the same time, the race is said to be dead heat race.
    Start: Suppose A and B are two contestants in a race. If before the start of the race, A is at the starting point and B is ahead of A by 20 metres, then we say that ‘A gives B, a start of 20 metres’.
    To cover a race of 100 metres in this case, A will have to cover 100 metres while B will have to cover only (100 – 20) = 80 metres.
    In a 100 race, ‘A can give B 20 m’ or ‘A can give B a start of 12 m’ or ‘A beats B by 20 m’ means that while A runs 100 m, B runs (100 – 20) = 80 m.
    Games: ‘A game of 100, means that the person among the contestants who scores 100 points first is the winner’.
    If A scores 100 points while B scores only 80 points, then we say that ‘A can give B 20 points’.
