A. 440 km

B. 444 km

C. 445 km

D. 450 km

**Answer: Option B **

__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

$$\eqalign{
& {\text{At the time of meeting ,}} \cr
& {\text{let the distance travelled by the}} \cr
& {\text{first train be }}x{\text{ km}}{\text{.}} \cr
& {\text{Then distance travelled by the }} \cr
& {\text{second train is (}}x{\text{ + 60) km}} \cr
& \therefore \frac{x}{{16}} = \frac{{x + 60}}{{21}} \cr
& \Rightarrow 21x = 16x + 960 \cr
& \Rightarrow 5x = 960 \Rightarrow x = 192 \cr
& {\text{Hence,}} \cr
& {\text{distance between two stations}} \cr
& {\text{ = (192 + 192 + 60) km}} \cr
& {\text{ = 444 km}}{\text{.}} \cr} $$
