A. 200 m

B. 225 m

C. 245 m

D. 250 m

### Solution(By Examveda Team)

\eqalign{ & {\text{Speed}} = {45 \times \frac{5}{{18}}} \,{\text{m/sec}} \cr & \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\, = {\frac{{25}}{2}} \,{\text{m/sec}} \cr & {\text{Time}} = 30\,{\text{sec}} \cr & {\text{Let}}\,{\text{the}}\,{\text{length}}\,{\text{of}}\,{\text{bridge}}\,{\text{be}}\,x\,{\text{metres}} \cr & {\text{Then}},\,\frac{{130 + x}}{{30}} = \frac{{25}}{2} \cr & \Rightarrow 2\left( {130 + x} \right) = 750 \cr & \Rightarrow x = 245\,m \cr}
