1. average speed=distance/time
assume d is the one way distance, so 2d will be the total distance.
time1..going one way= distance/15km/hr
time2..other way=distance/10km/hr
avgspeed=2d/(time1+time2)
= 2d/(d/10 + d/15)=2*150/25 work that out=12km/hr
I will happily critique your work or thinking on the others. 
did anyone one has gut to solve all these ques. cuz i don hav guts
