D. 72 sec

**Answer: Option C **

__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

$$\eqalign{
& {\text{Speed}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{train}}\,{\text{relative}}\,{\text{to}}\,{\text{jogger}} \cr
& = \left( {45 - 9} \right)\,{\text{km/hr}} \cr
& = 36\,{\text{km/hr}} \cr
& {36 \times \frac{5}{{18}}} \,{\text{m/sec}} \cr
& = 10\,{\text{m/sec}} \cr
& {\text{Distance}}\,{\text{to}}\,{\text{be}}\,{\text{covered}} \cr
& = \left( {240 + 120} \right)\,m \cr
& = 360\,m \cr
& \therefore {\text{Time}}\,{\text{taken}} \cr
& = {\frac{{360}}{{10}}} \,{\text{sec}} \cr
& = 36\,{\text{sec}} \cr} $$
