    speed from jetty to the point = 15 km/hr
    speed coming back to jetty = 10 km/hr
    therefore average speed = 15+10/2 = 12.5

    Correct Option: C
    --------------------------------------------
    Solutions :
    Average = ( 2uv / u +v ) km/hr
    = ( 2 x 15 x 10 ) / (15 +10 ) km/hr.
    = 12 km/hr.
