A. 120 m

B. 130 m

C. 140 m

D. 150 m

**Answer: Option B **

__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

Length of train$$ = \frac{{{\text{Length}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{platform}}}}{{{\text{Difference}}\,{\text{in time}}}}$$ × (Time taken to cross a lamp post)

$$\eqalign{ & = \frac{{390}}{{28 - 7}} \times 7 \cr & = \frac{{390}}{{21}} \times 7 \cr & = \frac{{390}}{3} \cr & = 130\,{\text{m}} \cr} $$
