Solution

The correct option is C 12 ms1, 50 s
Given:
Length of the train, D=60 m,
Time taken to cross the pole, T=5 s,
Length of the bridge =540 m

Speed of the train, s=DT

Speed of the train, s=605=12 ms1

Now, distance to be covered to cross a 540 m long bridge is sum of Length of the train and Length of the bridge.
d=60+540=600 m

Time taken=ds

Time taken=60012=50 s

Speed of the train is 12 ms1 and the time it will take to cross the bridge is 50 s.
