If you want a modern 1st year university treatment that's standard (US) textbook style, you can try Halliday and Resnick or Knight's book for "Scientists and Engineers". Knight is better for those who don't have a firm grasp of calculus yet and somewhat more wordy. Both of those give a fine introduction to basic mechanics among other things. However, in my opinion neither one is all that much fun for someone who wants to be a physicist. If you're a budding physicist who wants to think about things more deeply then a more enjoyable read on mechanics is Feynman's Lectures Vol. 1. This has all the mechanics but more interesting quirks, observations, and reflections on the fundamental nature of our world than standard texts. However, there are no problems to practice on. For more advanced material, Lunn's "First Course in Mechanics" is short, cheap and goes through Lagrangian mechanics as well.

I think HC Verma, IE Irodov, Zubov and Shalnov are pretty good!

A large tank is filled with th water.A small hole is made at a depth 10m below water surface.The range if water issuing out of the hole is R on the ground What extra pressure must be applied on the water surface so that the range becomes 2R?

there's lots. What aspect of physics are you looking for?

A fun book is Brian Greene's the Elegant universe.

I use my older brother's Physics for scientists and engineers, by Randall Knight. It was my brothers college text book. Has easy and hard problems, good example problems, and reads decently. There might be better textbooks out there I don't know.
