A train starts from A at 7 a.m. towards B with speed 50 km/h. Another train starts from B at 8 a.m. with speed of 60 km/h towards A. Both of them meet at 10 a.m. at C. The ratio of the distance AC to BC is?

A. 5 : 6

B. 5 : 4

C. 6 : 5

D. 4 : 5

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The speed of train A is 50km/hr and A starts its journey at 7 AM and reaches C at 10 AM. Total Travel time = 3hr
∴ Distance cover by A in 3hr = 50 × 3 = 150KM
Similarly, the speed of train B is 60km/hr and B starts its journey at 8 AM and reaches C at 10 AM. Total Travel time = 2hr
∴ Distance cover by B in 2hr = 60 × 2 = 120KM
The ratio of the distance between AC : BC
= 150 : 120
= 5 : 4
