A. 120 metres

B. 180 metres

C. 324 metres

D. 150 metres

### Solution(By Examveda Team)

\eqalign{ & {\text{Speed}} = \left( {60 \times \frac{5}{{18}}} \right){\text{m/sec}} = {\frac{{50}}{3}} {\text{m/sec}} \cr & {\text{Length}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{train}} = \left( {{\text{Speed}} \times {\text{Time}}} \right) \cr & \therefore {\text{Length}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{train}} \cr & = \left( {\frac{{50}}{3} \times 9} \right)m = 150m \cr}
