Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & {\text{Speed}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{train}}\,{\text{relative}}\,{\text{to}}\,{\text{man}} \cr & = \left( {63 - 3} \right)\,{\text{km/hr}} \cr & = 60\,{\text{km/hr}} \cr & = \left( {60 \times \frac{5}{{18}}} \right)\,{\text{m/sec}} \cr & \therefore {\text{Time}}\,{\text{taken}}\,{\text{to}}\,{\text{pass}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{man}} \cr & = \left( {500 \times \frac{3}{{50}}} \right)\,\sec \cr & = 30\,\sec \cr} $$
