Two trains meet each other mid-route. At what time do they meet, given that the distance between the cities is 1080 km?

  2. 2 pm
  3. 4 pm
  4. 12 mid - night


Solution

The correct option is A 6 am

Now, the result is obtained using the options.
Take the option 6 am which means the train from Ahmedabad  takes 12 h to cover 540 km. In this way, the speed will be 45 km/h and train from Mumbai takes 9 h to cover 540 km which means the speed is 60 km/h. It is written in the question that the difference between the speed of the train from Ahmedabad and that from Mumbai is 15 km/h: Hence, this is the answer.
