Solution

## The correct option is D 36 km First we need to find the speed of the car according to the given question the speed of the car is 80 × 0.6 = 48 kmph Now the distance covered by the train in 15 minutes is equal to 1560×80=20km Now, the distance between 3 stations is 20 × 3 = 60 km Since distance is directly proportional to the speed ​ 4880=x60 Hence, x = 36 km
