Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & {\text{Time taken by trains to cross each }} \cr & {\text{other in opposite direction}} \cr & {\text{ = }}\frac{{{l_1} + {l_2}}}{{{\text{relative speed in opposite direction}}}} \cr & {\text{ = }}\frac{{\left( {180 + 120} \right)}}{{\left( {65 + 55} \right)}} \cr & {\text{ = }}\frac{{300}}{{120 \times \frac{5}{{18}}}} \cr & {\text{ = 9 seconds}} \cr} $$
